The 12 Months of drp
As we near the end of our 35th year – a year full of exciting new projects and clients, anniversary celebrations, CSR initiatives, collaborations, royal visits and development across the team and business-wide it’s time to reflect on our highlights;
January saw the drpteam pledge to complete 35 CSR projects, Triumph Motorcycles being added to the client roster and drpexhibition making the Exhibition News’ ‘Elite List’.
February marked the arrival of the drp Possiblers and the newest member of the drpcomms team; Parker the Possibler – here to make ‘anything’s possible’.
March saw Dale being named M&IT Personality of the Year, the partnership of drp and Maritz Travel and Matt Franks joining the board.
April began with a royal visit to the drp studios from Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, the drpteam abseiling the ArcelorMittal and Arriva joining our family of clients, beginning with a leadership conference for both their Bus and Train Divisions.
