Another Year, Another Venue, Another Success

Another Year, Another Venue, Another Success Back

Date published: June 4, 2015

This year the Independent School’s Bursars Association, ISBA, chose The Celtic Manor resort in South Wales to host their 2 day annual conference and exhibition on 13th and 14th May 2015.

 Whittle were again delighted to support this major event for Independent Schools, promoting our services to new and existing customers alike.

Despite Celtic Manor being a leading golf venue and the home of the Ryder Cup in 2010, our   Whittle team, comprising of Andy Baroth, Andrew Simpson, Graham Forbes, Jeremy Hankinson and Stephanie Wright were entirely focused on delivering the message that we are the primary provider of painting programmes in the UK, along with property maintenance services and hygienic and environmental coatings.

Directly engaging with visitors at the stand and by reinforcing the message at the gala dinner, we were able to maximise the number of enquiries received. To help support this effort, the team supplied goody bags, encouraged delegates to take brochures, and provide contact details to enter our prize draws for a “Fitbit Charge” or “Sundry” a large cuddly toy Dulux Dog.   This event continues to provide quality leads which the team aim to convert into new business.

Congratulations goes to Paul Bennett of Pocklington School who won the Fitbit and Steve Crane of The Seckford Foundation who won the Dulux Dog in the prize draws.
