  •  Australian brokers enjoy South African welcome in Sun City
  • Secret location for 2016 Conference unveiled at Welcome Night


Vow Financial (Vow) opened its sixth annual conference in Sun City, South Africa today with a record breaking attendance and an announcement on what’s ahead for the 2016 conference and the year ahead.
 
This year’s 2015 conference themed “Inspiring New Ways” received the largest attendance to date with 100 individual finance brokers trekking across the globe to South Africa with their partners and families (250 guests in total) for a chance to be inspired to grow their business.
 
The highly anticipated announcement for next year’s conference was made at the Welcome Night in the Valley of the Waves in Sun City, inviting the Group to join Vow in Whistler, Canada next year where the 2016 conference will take place.
 
Tim Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Vow said that the conferences are set up to provide a chance for the network to come together to get refreshed and reinvigorated to achieve success.
 
“We are known for our action packed conferences in exciting locations. It’s something our network looks forward to all year round. Our broker partners enjoy our family friendly atmosphere, bringing their spouse and kids to the conference to unwind and focus on the year ahead. We have only just begun our African adventure and there is already growing excitement for 2016 in Whistler, Canada,” he said. 
 
The Welcome Night in the Valley of the Waves included a traditional South African Marimba Band and Afrikaans style meal from a Zulu hut.
 
Mr Brown said this year’s conference schedule is full of business building sessions and excellent key note speakers including; Ahmed Kathrada who was imprisoned with Mandela, Ian Thomas an international business consultant who also guided tours through a South African game reserve and Jonathan Kaplan, the world’s most capped Test Referee in the global rugby arena.
 
“This year we want to inspire our professional network under the African sun with new ways to kick-start growth in their business. We don’t want to do business the same way, year in year out. We want to be leaders in the industry, leaders in our business and financial leaders to our clients and their customers,” Mr Brown said.
 
“Delegates will be challenged over the coming days to do business differently and to think about things in a new light. We don’t want anyone to go away the same as when they arrive. We want to send these brokers home brimming with new ideas and inspiring new ways for the coming year.”
 
The 2015 South Africa National Conference followed past conferences in Vietnam, Hawaii, Thailand, Fiji and the Gold Coast.
