The Belvoir Annual Conference and Awards, sponsored by SDL Property Auctions and Let Alliance, welcomed franchisees, guests and suppliers from across the country to celebrate achievements and help boost business growth. With 166 offices in the Belvoir network, it was popular husband and wife team, Ben and Daisy Davies from Belvoir Swansea, Mumbles and Sketty who impressed the judges the most with their achievements to scoop the coveted Gold Award for Belvoir Franchise of the Year 2022.
“I am absolutely thrilled that Ben and Daisy Davies of Belvoir Swansea, Mumbles and Sketty won the Gold Award for Franchise of the Year 2022,” said Belvoir CEO Dorian Gonsalves. “Ben and Daisy are incredibly popular with everyone in the network and unsurprisingly received a standing ovation from everyone in attendance when their names were called out as winners of this prestigious award.
“I’ve known Ben and Daisy since they first joined Belvoir 12 years ago. They took on the Belvoir Swansea office as a cold start business and have built their business up over the years, adding two more Belvoir offices in Mumbles and Sketty and literally gone from zero to heroes, becoming incredible ambassadors for the Belvoir brand. They are highly deserving of the title Belvoir Franchise of the Year and are also on target to achieve a million pounds worth of turnover this year. I would like to wish Ben, Daisy and the teams at Belvoir Swansea, Mumbles and Sketty many, many congratulations and every success for the future.”
Speaking of their win, Ben Davies said: “Daisy and I are so happy and pleased! We won the Silver Award in 2020 and 2021, so to win Gold this year is just brilliant. We’ve always strived to win Gold and will definitely be aiming to win it again next year. Daisy and I would like to thank our amazing team, who do so much every day to help us achieve success. They are as thrilled as we are to win this title, and we are really looking forward to celebrating with them.”
“The 2022 Belvoir Annual Conference and Awards was a superb event,” continued Belvoir CEO Dorian Gonsalves. “I think everyone was incredibly relieved and delighted to be able to attend in person this year rather than having to attend a virtual event. The Conference, held at Coombe Abbey Hotel in Coventry, was entitled Reset for Growth 2022, and was designed to inspire our franchisees by listening to entrepreneurial speakers, talking with suppliers, networking with other business owners, and ultimately going home with a raft of new ideas to help them reboot, recharge, and reinvent their own businesses.
“In the evening Belvoir’s franchisees and guests attended the prestigious black tie 2022 Annual Awards. This was a no-expense spared event, provided completely free to our guests, and had a circus theme, complete with fire eaters and acrobats as entertainment. The Cirque Du Belvoir was a truly unique way to celebrate the achievements of our top performing business owners and their teams.
“A total of 31 awards were presented on the night, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, which went to Mick and Linda Green from Belvoir Burnley. After 19 years with Belvoir, Linda and Mick have achieved a record number of 100% audit compliance results, created a very successful business, and can now look forward to their well-deserved retirement. Skylar Atkinson of Belvoir Aberdeen was awarded the Belvoir Rising Star Award in recognition of her ambitious plans and business growth, whilst new franchisee Paul Tyson of Belvoir Tamworth won the Belvoir Newcomer of the Year Award. Paul bought this office as a resale last year and, after wholeheartedly embracing the Belvoir business model, has elevated this office to a new level.
“There were many other wonderful results on the night, with all aspects of the Belvoir business model recognised, from financial services to sales and lettings, as well as offices who have organised great charity events and provided outstanding customer service. The judges had a very tough time in choosing the winners! I congratulate everyone in the Central Office team for organising such a brilliant event, and of course all of our sponsors and suppliers for helping to make the Conference and Awards the huge success that it was.”
