SearchFlow, the UK’s leading property search information provider, is delighted to announce the launch of the 18th Property Forum Dinner, to be held once again at the Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden, London on 17th October.

The dinner has a rich heritage, attracting business leaders from across the legal, estate agency, surveying, lending and property information sectors to gather and network in a convivial atmosphere. The emphasis this year is very much on informality, but with guest speakers with both celebrity and wit to entertain.

The keynote speaker will be George Clarke, architect and property TV presenter, who will be making a keynote speech about his passion for creating new kinds of architecture, as well as freeing up existing housing supply to meet demand. He is well known for his Channel 4 property series The Home Show and Restoration Man and has also presented three series of ‘Build a New Life’ for Channel Five and ‘The Empty Homes Show’. He also runs an award winning architectural practice and is a university lecturer.

The after-dinner speaker will be David Osborne, a practising criminal barrister by profession. In 1991 he hit the headlines and made legal history when he delivered his final speech to the jury entirely in verse. He has presented his show “An evening of Legal Humour” to critical acclaim, as well as presenting and starring in a legal revue entitled The Law is an Ass to full houses.

Diners will then be able to try their luck in the inaugural cashless Property Forum Casino and try and win a special prize.

SearchFlow have been proud to have facilitated the running of the Property Forum Dinner since it started back in the late 1990’s and is now a regular fixture in the diaries of the business owners and directors from across the industry.

We wanted to create a change of pace and a distinctly different flavour for the dinner this year” says Marshall King, Chief Executive, SearchFlow.Dinner guests will be both fascinated with George’s thought provoking insights and highly entertained by David’s witty anecdotes from life at the Bar. The property market has had a return to better days since the spring and we wanted to reflect a new mood of optimism that is now tangible with many of our fellow colleagues in the industry.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
