Looking back at the 2016 Autumn Forum

The theme of last year’s Forum was ‘Be The Best’ and in every respect that is exactly what NAVA delegates enjoyed. On the 6 October a record number of delegates descended onto the Oxford Belfry to enjoy the quality presenters that were covering a wide range of topics affecting the industry.

The feedback from delegates, which is the true acid test confirms the excellent programme that held everybody attention and provided real innovative insights to help attendees both personally and for their businesses.

The Forum's content is reflective of our wide range of activities was of the finest order in terms of quality, relevance and delivery.

Global experts shared their views and tips on a far ranging scale of topics which included:

  • The Economy – Now and in the future showing that Brexit is not all doom and gloom.
  • Using computing and informatics giving delegates an understanding of and how to use pursuit and persuasion tactics.
  • Specific break-out sessions for Chattels and Property sectors covering areas such as IT, Proceeds of Financial Crime in Property, Firearms Law, Transforming the Bidder Experience, Online Auctions, Property Auction Law. These topics delivered hard-nosed ways of helping NAVA member businesses.
  • The final session was a practical but creatively enriched way to think ‘outside the box’ and deliver ways to increase sales presented by Paul Wearmouth. This provided hints and tips to help any and all types of businesses as well as developing personal skills.

All in all a fantastic conference to help our members be the best and maintain that edge in the future. Many delegates were already looking to next year’s event, now that’s something to relish.
