CoreNet’s UK Chapter wins Chapter of the Year at Global Awards
Award-presentation2.jpgThe UK Chapter of CoreNet Global has been awarded ‘Large/Mega Chapter of the Year’ at the Global Awards and Recognition dinner, held last week at the Global Summit in Seattle. 

Awards-BJ2.jpgThe UK Chapter has been recognised for its membership recruitment, growth and retention strategies, delivery of value proposition and diversity of local programmes, innovative programming, it’s focus on Young Leader development and CRE professionals as well as its alignment with CoreNet Global’s Strategic Plan, during the financial year of 2017.

This is a first for the Chapter that has spent the last year working hard to retain and grow its membership through sharing news and adding value with a range of educational and social events.

President, Ben Johnson, who was there to collect the award said, “It’s an exciting time to be part of CoreNet’s UK Chapter. In the last year alone, we have had 69 new members join against the long-term average of 44, and the Young Leaders is the fastest growing group with 31 new members - more than double to prior years. We’re a growing chapter and want to continue to provide our members with the highest quality events and learning.

“We’ve implemented several new initiatives, including a quarterly newsletter to keep members informed, reinvigorated our website, and have a social media strategy in place to promote the best parts of being a member of our chapter. To win this award is testament to the hard work the team at operating and executive level put in.”

Over the last year the Chapter has also implemented an innovative events programme that provides members and non-members a range of informative events with balanced topics, taking into consideration economic, social and political events shaping the industry.

Summer Sports Day

Date:  22 June 2017

CoreNet’s UK Chapter Young Leaders recently joined forces with the Young Managers Forum (YMF) and BCO NextGen for a Summer Sports day in Regent’s Park to raise money for the Chapter’s 2017 chosen charity, Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice – a very worthy cause helping a community-based charity that provides support for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families in Central and North London and Hertsmere.

The team raised £1,400 by bringing together young leaders from across the workplace sector, from Facilities Management, to Real Estate, to Office fit-out and design. Starting with a softball game the day ended with networking over burgers and drinks with all three organisations agreeing to collaborate in future events.

The Young Leaders are keen to collaborate with like-minded groups across the industry and bring young professionals together to learn, network and develop their careers.
