drp Hosts Annual Summer Conference at Drayton Manor Theme Park
Held at Drayton Manor Theme Park in the Midlands, drp’s annual summer conference on Monday 4th July was for the entire drpteam of 180 people. The theme for this year’s conference was ‘Innovation and Collaboration’ and it was a great occasion to reflect on the past 6 months and look forward to the next 6 months. We had an engaging day of challenging activities and team building, before late afternoon access to Drayton Manor Theme Park, as well as a BBQ and entertainment in the evening.
This year’s conference consisted of business updates, teambuilding activities, and 2 minute presentations from each of the 33 departments on how their teams have been and are being innovative and collaborative since the beginning of the year. We also had a chance to do some “speed networking” with the drpboard and senior management team, allowing everyone to ask questions and input into driving the business forward from their roles and divisions.
As one entire team, we are able to share creativity, engage in our future plans, and build relationships.
Dale Parmenter, Group CEO commented, “Our annual summer conference is an essential part of our internal communications, in terms of reflection and forward thinking. Our team is an integral part of drp and it is vital to emphasise to the team the roles they play in the success of the business. As one entire team, we are able to share creativity, engage in our future plans, and build relationships. We are all very motivated for the next few months, with our office expansion well underway and the biggest ever training and development programme running for the team. Our conference is an ideal environment to share ideas for the future of drp.”
