GPN in the UK, represented by the CoachMarque Quality Accreditation Scheme, a product of the Confederation of Passenger Transport, had its third conference at the Alverston Manor Hotel in Stratford Upon Avon on 16th-17th January 2011.
Over 40 members of the scheme attended and listened to informed presentations from a number of speakers, including Omega Holidays, a major purchaser of coaching product, Belmont International Insurance Brokers and from “Life Coach” Jonathon Booker who led the “break out sessions” in the afternoon.
“Feedback has been really good”, said CoachMarque Chairman, Mark Anderson. “Our Forum has been full of praise since the event concluded and we now have the green light to spend time developing a “members benefit programme” in similar fashion to our colleagues at IMG in the USA and Canada and what GPN itself is trying to achieve. There are definitely benefits to come from pooling purchasing power!
