This past weekend, Sheffield-based marketing and sales specialists Syrac Inspirations travelled to Manchester to attend the first industry regional conference of the year.
Held at the Manchester Central Convention Complex on Sunday February 12th, the conference was attended by sales and marketing professionals from all over the North of England.
Top of the agenda for the conference was leadership development. Upon arrival, attendees were divided into two groups. The first comprising of rookie sales and marketing professionals, and the second group made up of more experienced individuals.
The itinerary for group one included business basics, goal setting, developing a winning mentality, mastering the art of sales, business development and fast-tracking the road to success. Each topic was covered by a guest speaker, including award-winning entrepreneurs from all over the UK. Exclusive guest speakers also addressed group two. The speakers were each assigned a specialist subject to focus on, discussing topics including; how to build an A-team, coaching and mentoring, how to run successful business trips, the importance of building a personal brand, what it takes to be an entrepreneur and the difference between being a leader and a boss.
Attendees were then brought together for a final thirty-minute close to proceedings. After the day’s events had ended, the venue hosted a cocktail hour, allowing attendees to socialise and network with fellow professionals as well as the day’s guest speakers. Managing Director at Syrac Inspirations Rachel Robinson took advantage of the opportunity to make some new connections, and diversify and expand her network.
“One of the main benefits of attending events like the one in Manchester is having the chance to expand my network. Many people underestimate the significant impact a good network can have on both personal and professional success. Early on in my career networking was never something I devoted much time to. However, it’s no coincidence that the more I grow my network, the more successful my business has become,” said Ms Robinson.
