 Synergy Conference 2022 – the new way to do CPD

Synergy Conference 2022 – the new way to do CPD

This month sees the doors opening for the very first time to the newest CPD event in the UK. Synergy Conference is the brain child of The Property Ladder Group and LawSkills – Leading Legal Minds, and has captured the attention of the Private Client Sector Professionals from all parts of the country.

Helen Graham, MD and Co-Founder of PLG, said:

“We are really excited about the feedback we have received so far.

We saw there was a need to reinvent the way CPD Conferences were put on, from the way the updates are provided right through to the kind of premises the event is held. In true PLG style we wanted to update the process and give legal professionals who operate within the sector something they would want to attend, and not just something they are required to. We certainly feel we have achieved this.”

Gill Steel is someone that draws a crowd. Arguably the speaker most within the world of probate, trusts and tax will do their learning from. A couple of years ago Gill announced she would no longer be travelling to speak at conferences, so what has drawn her out of “retirement” and be part of this new idea? She continued:

“When I announced I was retiring from travelling I had one last conference booked, my swan song if you will. However, the Covid pandemic saw this event cancelled meaning I did not get to have that one last sign off.

Having known Darren and Helen for many years, we have always had a common belief and indeed approach to how we work with other professionals within the Private Client Sector.

The definition of the word ‘synergy’ is – the interaction or corporation of two or more organizations, substances or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate efforts.

We feel this is exactly what our sector needs to be doing in order to ensure the absolute best service for the customer. Hence the name.”

The venue is beautiful, there is parking, the food will be so much better than delegates are used to at other conferences, there is a bit of entertainment and in addition the event is being filmed, so our attendees will get the recording in addition to paper notes.

Subjects being covered are:

  • Tax
  • Probate
  • Pensions
  • Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Trusts
  • Digital Assets
  • IPFD Claims

In addition, we will be discussing a real life scenario that invites our sponsors to introduce their services, and how we as a collective can ensure those engaging our services are looked after to the best of our ability.

PLG – Giving Back To The CommunityWe are active in our support of helping young people, and with this in mind sponsor boys and girls football teams.Our main work however, is with The Brompton fountain.The Brompton Fountain is the children’s charity at Royal Brompton Hospital. They work closely with the teams within the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), High Dependency Unit (HDU), children’s ward (Rose), the playroom, outpatient departments and hospital school.This amazing charity provides a wide range of vital resources and services, parent / carer amenities and accommodation and funds medical equipment, improvements to the facilities and projects which are outside of the NHS remit.Many patients have life limiting conditions and will require frequent admissions and often long stays in hospital for surgery and on-going treatment for the rest of their lives. The Brompton team have first-hand experience of caring for a child with a serious illness and provide support from the point of diagnosis as well as before, during and after any admission.Their aim is to improve the quality of life and environment for young patients in hospital and at home and make a difference when it’s needed most.We donate to The Royal Brompton from every property we sell, meaning that when you work with us, you too are helping save children’s lives.In addition, we promote their team, and our very own Darren Leggett is their official Santa Clause, and visits the Children on the wards at Christmas to spread a little cheer and happiness.
