Fantastically hosted by the French WBN member, Verlingue, over 300 delegates descended on Paris for action-packed days filled with different panels, speeches and networking. Once again WBN proved that we are not just a network, we are a closely intertwined group of partners that carry each other’s mutual interests as a high priority. The conference is not only a highly professional meeting, it also bears the touch of a large family reunion.
A development welcomed by all WBN members is the increasing number of prospects and clients being brought to the conferences. It adds great value to such meetings and we were proud as SÜDVERS to host the largest client meeting of the Paris conference, the GEA client meeting, GEA being one of the largest clients of WBN worldwide bringing revenues of over 1.3 million Euros to the network, was attended by over 30 brokers from throughout the world and was a fantastic show of the Network’s strength also lead to the client expressing his great trust in the service of the Network.
One of the key focusses of many brokers is cross-border prospecting and in Paris we observed the first joint strategies and pipelines being built. This is definitely a development that we can all look forward to, as it will undoubtedly support us in the forthcoming years.
Other memorable events at the Paris conference included impressive speeches by Philippe Donnet, CEO of Generali, and French journalist/entrepreneur, Nicolas Beytout. The conference was finished in style with a fantastic final gala dinner aboard a cruise ship on the Seine with fantastic views of Paris including the spectacular Eifel Tower.
I think I speak for all SÜDVERS attendees in saying that this was a highly memorable conference and that the WBN Network grows stronger day by day.
