365 Days of SDL Property Partners

Posted on 30/10/2018

On the 12th of October, we celebrated our 1st Birthday in style at an exclusive Central London location.

Our franchisees with the Property Partners business development team.

The event which took place at the RAF Club in London’s Mayfair, celebrated all of the year’s achievements with the team and our franchisees. We held the event during the same week as World Mental Health Day (Wednesday 10th October) and ensured the day’s agenda reflected this.

Our business development manager, Fred Hopkins, hosted a seminar session on how to overcome obstacles and mental barriers, as well as News on the Block’s Louise Newton, treating us to an introduction to yoga therapy, meditation and mindfulness.

In addition to shining a spotlight on mental health, one seminar focused on how we can stop domestic abuse in the property management industry. The passionate talk given by Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance’s (DAHA) co-founder, Gudrun Burnet, urged those in the room to stop and consider if antisocial behaviour shown by a tenant could be a sign of domestic abuse.

We took a trip down memory lane, looking at the last year with  Nick Faulkner taking the opportunity to thank our franchisees for all their work and belief in the scheme during its first year, sharing:

“I have been in the property industry for 26 years and I wanted to give people some of the opportunities I have had along the way. This is a great industry to generate repeat income and provide a quality service to leaseholders. SDL Property Partners has been an amazing opportunity to give back, and we have changed the industry in the space of a year. Our future challenge is to create a National Network of Property Partners of say 100 in number and then we will consider it opportune to crack open the champagne again and have our next celebration!”

Above all, he thanked their efforts in helping to change the industry’s image with their professional approach.
