Following the conference theme of The Belief Factor, acclaimed Life Coach Sue Revell spoke on how to find your flow in your business. Later in the day, Deb Holland, Head of Inspection at the Care Quality Commission, revealed How to be Outstanding, before Colin Angel, UKHCA Campaigns & Policy Director, spoke on the challenges facing the care sector. The daytime event closed with an award  being presented for Caremark’s Care Worker of the Year, Ian Wood from Caremark (Kirklees).

Caremark’s National Operations Manager, Liz Bosley-Sharpe commented: “All our franchisees really engaged with the activities and found the day extremely inspiring.”

“The evening celebration was a fantastic show of our network coming together to celebrate not only their success but the success of their colleagues,” Bosley-Sharpe concluded.

A Bollywood themed gala dinner followed with guests being entertained to traditional Indian music and dancing, culminating in the Caremark franchise awards ceremony.
