Order! Order! Bercow to be key speaker at property conference

The controversial former Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, is to be the keynote speaker at a property industry conference later this month.

Bercow will give the keynote speech at The Negotiator Conference in London on November 29.

He is described in the conference publicity material as “a seasoned raconteur with countless stories from the corridors of power.”


The event is being chaired by another political figure - Lord Daniel Finkelstein, who is an associate editor of The Times: he has been in the Lords for over six years, sitting as a Conservative.

There will be property industry speakers too.

Lord Richard Best - a cross bencher - will talk on his work as chair of the Regulation of Property Agents working group, wile other contributions will come from Jackson-Stops chairman Nick Leeming, Hunters chief executive Glynis Frew, Hometrack’s insight director Richard Donnell, and Belvoir Group chairman Michael Stoop.

Estate Agent Today weekly contributor James Dearsley will address delegates on PropTech issues, while other speakers include Iain Mackenzie - chief executive of the Guild of Property Professionals - as well as Lauren Scott, who is the current president of thew National Association of Estate Agents.

    Maybe some people feel that the day will just be a talking shop, but I will be listening to find out the direction of play within the property community. It is very rare to get all of these polymaths under the same roof, and their views are just that - views to excite debate and move things on, especially as the landscape of agency is changing. Bercow is my local MP and I have met him, and he is a straight talker, so taking politics out of it - I am sure he alone will be a class act to watch and listen.
