Sharing Success: The Guild Conference and Awards celebrate Member achievements

The QEII Centre in Westminster, London, was abuzz with excitement on Friday, 22 March 2024, as The Guild of Property Professionals hosted its highly anticipated annual Guild Conference and Awards. Under the theme ‘Sharing Success,’ the full-day conference brought together innovative and passionate Guild Members alongside industry pioneers for an event exclusive to The Guild’s network.
Led by Iain McKenzie, CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals, the conference aimed to champion industry successes both within and outside the network. Esteemed speakers included industry figure Peter Rollings, former Foxtons boss and owner of Marsh & Parsons, who shared insights into achieving higher fees. CEO and Founder of Agent Rainmaker, Sally Lawson, delved into additional revenue streams within the lettings side of the business. Other sessions included panel discussions which explored the impact of AI on the property sector, providing attendees with valuable perspectives on industry trends and innovation.

Highlighting the accomplishments of Guild Members throughout 2023, despite market challenges, McKenzie underscored the importance of recognising and honouring agents who have gone above and beyond for their clients and the industry. The presentation of the Guild Awards during the afternoon session served as a testament to these achievements.
Renowned TV presenter, Property, and Travel Expert, Laura Hamilton, graced the stage to present the awards to the deserving winners. The conference and awards ceremony provided The Guild with an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work of its Members, who have excelled in providing exceptional customer service while guiding buyers and sellers through their home moving journey.
This year, 95 Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Special Awards were presented to Guild Members in honour of the outstanding results they achieved during 2023. As an organisation, The Guild of Property Professionals takes pride in its Members’ accomplishments and is delighted to celebrate their success.
Commenting on the conference and awards, McKenzie stated, “The Guild Conference and Awards are a platform for us to acknowledge agents who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and professionalism throughout the year.
