Pitman Training Celebrates 185 Years Of Delivering Distinction

Pitman Training Celebrates 185 Years Of Delivering Distinction

Last week, Pitman Training marked its 185th anniversary in style with its annual global franchise conference. Attended by franchisees and key suppliers alike, the event created a valuable opportunity to celebrate the brand’s growth, welcome new franchise partners and motivate attendees to take their businesses to the next level. 

“At Pitman, we are in constant virtual contact with one another; however, it was fantastic to be in a venue and face-to-face with so many of our franchise partners again. Nothing beats the atmosphere of a Pitman Training conference, where the sense of collaboration and pride is so evident. It was a great couple of days and very well received by all. We are excited about what the future holds for Pitman Training.” said Paul Lewis, Managing Director of Pitman Training.

The conference’s overarching theme was ‘Delivering Distinction’, exemplified in all the inspiring talks delivered by Pitman Training and a variety of exciting keynote speakers. “It is our distinctiveness that has given Pitman such tremendous brand recognition, a reputation for excellence, and is the key to the brand’s success and longevity,” explained Paul.

Among the guest speakers were some of Pitman’s top performing franchise partners, Margaret Cox, Tomás Finneran and Kristian O’Donovan, who shared their experiences running successful centres and how others can follow suit in delivering distinction. The icing on the cake, however, was Olympic athlete Sally Gunnell OBE. She presented a unique and impactful workshop which energised all the franchise partners to continually strive to be the best version of themselves, learn from setbacks and how to build resilience.

Pitman also recognised some of the network’s star performers with its 2022 Delivering Distinction Awards Ceremony. Neil and Dip Khakhria, the directors of Pitman Training Enfield, were awarded with the Best Local Marketing Award 2022. “We had a great couple of days at the conference and it was fantastic to catch up with our friends in the network. There was obviously a lot of effort put in by the team at head office and it didn’t go unnoticed by everyone who attended. It was a pleasure listening to individuals excelling in their businesses and it has given us the inspiration to grow our business even more in 2023 and beyond. We are honoured to have been recognised for all our work at Pitman Training Enfield. Thank you everyone,” commented Dip.

What Our Franchisees Say

I’ve been able to help far more people than I ever could’ve dreamed of when I was working freelance. Head office provides us with sophisticated business management systems and marketing support. They’re also always looking to develop the products we use to make sure there are various innovative ways for students to learn.Joy Renshaw, Pitman Training Brighton

“Joining Pitman was the perfect opportunity for me to help improve people’s career prospects, gain promotions or help them get back into work. One thing I’ve found about being a franchise partner with Pitman is that you’re in business for yourself but not by yourself. There’s a level of comfort that you get because other people are involved in the same project, it’s a real team effort.Chris Wyle, multi-unit franchise partner
