Dawsons Training Wales Triumphs at EA Masters Awards 2023

It has been some time since the prestigious EA Masters Awards, and the Dawsons Training Wales team are still in disbelief at the incredible achievement. Dawsons Training Wales (DTW) emerged as a standout performer at the event. The excitement reached its pinnacle as DTW not only secured the GOLD award in the Small Supplier category but was also honored with the OVERALL SUPPLIER Award. The feeling is simply indescribable.

In a fiercely competitive landscape, with over 700 suppliers vying for recognition in the UK estate agency industry, DTW's accomplishment is nothing short of remarkable. The Supplier Awards, divided into Small, Medium, and Large categories, each with Bronze, Silver, and Gold distinctions, culminated in DTW being crowned the Overall Supplier, the best among the best.

Expressions of Gratitude:

Our success story wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging the incredible support from all of our clients. Whether it's providing Rent Smart Wales accredited courses, collaborating with renowned industry names like McCarthy and Stone and The Wallich, or working closely with private landlords, alongside local and regional agents such as Davies Homes and Number One (Newport), our journey has been marked by unwavering support.

Looking Ahead:

The journey doesn’t end here. Naomi and Kate have dedicated themselves to evolving DTW, rewriting the course multiple times, and adapting to industry changes and legislation. DTW are gearing up for further enhancements to our offerings. A new classroom package is in the works, promising an exciting new chapter for the team.

Heartfelt Thanks:

On behalf of Ricky, Kate and Naomi, we extend our deepest gratitude. "Thank you" doesn’t capture the full spectrum of emotions as Dawsons Training Wales (DTW) holds a special place in our hearts.
