Last week Abigail Day, Associate Director, Alice Cresswell-Hogg, Public Sector Consultant and I attended the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) North West Branch Conference hosted at the Hilton Hotel in Blackpool. Sellick Partnership has continued to be a loyal supporter of HFMA conferences for over a decade, and this was around the 10th North West conference that I have attended since working for Sellick Partnership for 12+ years. I missed the last two HFMA North West Conferences due to taking time off to be on maternity leave so it was great to be back.
These events are key for us to attend as they provide us with an excellent opportunity to meet with our new and existing clients to gain insightful market knowledge and to continue building relationships. The day started with a welcome from John Graham, HFMA North West Branch Chair and delegates spent the day listening to senior finance professionals including Gary Hull CTA, Associate Director and Brian Cooper CTA, Senior Manager from E&Y who spoke about Minimum Wage Legislation and the conference was concluded by Linda Moir, the former Head of Event Services for the London 2012 Olympics.
Delegates attended our stand and participated in the Contact Card Drop for a chance to win a Veuve Clicquot Champagne picnic hamper and Hotel Chocolat hamper. Once again, all delegates were given the opportunity to take part in our well-known Sellick Partnership Buzzwire for the chance to win a bottle of wine. In the evening, remaining guests were seated for an awards ceremony and gala dinner followed by a drinks reception in the club and bar of the hotel.
Sellick Partnership is an established NHS provider and over the last decade we have built strong working relationships with our clients and candidates. I have personally worked at Sellick Partnership in the finance and accountancy sector for 12 and a half years. In this time, I have been heavily involved with the NHS and have helped with their recruitment needs and plans. Further to this, I can say that a lot of our long-standing relationships have been built upon networking at these conferences, they really are invaluable.
A thoroughly enjoyable conference was had by all and we are looking forward to working with you in the future.
