John Newcomb, BMF CEO said: “This is a hugely exciting venture for the BMF. Branch Managers are the lynchpin of the industry and this forum was created specifically for them. We are lining up a fantastic range of speakers to stimulate new thinking and galvanise action when delegates return to their branches.”
The BMF has brought together an impressive range of industry experts to share their knowledge on a wide variety of branch-related subjects, including:
- Manager's Role in Health & Safety
- Increasing Sales Margins
- Employment Law
- Leadership and Management
- Digital Marketing
- Mental Health & Wellbeing
- BMF Training Taster Workshops
- Product Masterclasses
- and much more...
The 2 day event will conclude with a truly inspirational speech from Retired Lieutenant Colonel Stewart Hill. Stewart will deliver an amazing insight into his achievements where he reflects the significance of teamwork, trust and communication and how life's obstacles can be met head on and overcome.
