Company Secretary Julie Hindle and administration manager Katrina Jackson spent a day at PCA HQ in Huntingdon, learning how to improve business management. Just being the best at damp proofing, dry rot and woodworm treatment is not enough to keep a business healthy these days. Balancing the books, planning for change and keeping all staff challenged and fulfilled is crucial.
The day was organised for members of the Property Care Association with input from our PCA chairman Les Meikle, who runs Wise Property Care; one of the best known and well run members of our trade association. He was assisted by Martin Hughes who is also a past chairman of PCA and runs succesful Yorkshire based firm Yorkshire Dampcourse.
There was a good mix of members present from all over the UK. Les and Martin share a similar view to our MD Bryan Hindle; sharing good practice is not only fair but is good for everyone, members and consumers.
Katrina and Julie came back from the day full of additional tips and plans for change, to improve our service and make the business work better for ourselves and our clients.
The course illustrates the deep sense of responsibility PCA core members have and a shared belief in working together, for the good of the industry.
The Property Care Association is thriving under the chairmanship of Les and the sterling work done by CEO Steve Hodgson and his team in Huntingdon – membership works for Brick-Tie on so many levels it’s hard to list them all.
Bryan is booked in for a visit to Huntingdon next week to brush up on the latest in basement and structural waterproofing; keeping his CSSW qualification up to date and ensuring best practice for clients.
