“OBREMS 9th Annual Dinner took place last Thursday at The Institute of Directors. It was a sell out with over 200 attendees nearly all of whom were alumni of Oxford Brookes who operate in the world of real estate.
The Chairman Jason Antill, Managing Director of Pre Chartered Surveyors, was the driving force behind the dinner working with President Andrew Hynard and the excellent committee – all of whom volunteer their time and effort.
The guest speaker was Dame Katherine Grainger, Chancellor of Oxford Brookes and Britain’s most decorated female Olympic athlete, with medals at 5 successive games. She delivered a hugely inspiring and entertaining presentation in which she talked about the power of sport, team-work, the opportunities which University education provides and the contribution which alumni can put back into developing future talent.
Andrew Hynard, President, announced the succession of Jason Antill as Chairman following an outstanding successful three year term. His successor, James Stacey of PGIM will take on the leadership role with effect from March 2020.
There was applause for the enormous contribution from Jason in promoting and developing OBREMS, and he will continue on the OBREMS committee beyond March.
The Partnering Programme was launched, whereby companies are invited to contribute £5,000 annually to create a pool of funds to support bursaries and other charitable initiatives
Over £10,000 was raised on the night through raffle, a game of heads and tails and an auction which was brilliantly orchestrated by Will Clough of Allsop’s.”
