We're taking our national conveyancing conference on the road!

Driving & Adapting to Change focuses on the small changes conveyancers can make that can have a big effect on their businesses. Featuring a range of expert guest speakers, each event is split into two sessions with the first focusing on how conveyancers can stay responsive to changes in legislation and manage risk in a property transaction - as well as dealing with the ever-more demanding consumer.

The second session takes a look at how conveyancers can take a more proactive approach to change by embracing new ideas and technology to get ahead of the competition. This session will include talks on reputation management, new business conversion, and attracting and retaining the best talent.

Each session will be followed by interactive roundtables with your peers to help gain a better understanding of the issues and exchange views and experiences.


"I thought the length of the sessions and structure of the day was excellent and kept you engaged."
