Drpgroup has used its annual conference to discuss the company’s plans to double in size in the next five years.
The entire drpgroup team headed to Silverstone on Monday 14 July for its internal summer conference.
The theme of this year’s conference was ’Best for Business’, and presentations where mainly led by Group MD Dale Parmenter with support from his board members and senior management team.
The day featured time dedicated to looking at the five-year business plan, which aims to double the size of the business in this time period.
Elements to the day included ’speed dating’ with board members and managers using the sessions to learn more about the functions of their fellow divisions.
This led into a session on improving business efficiencies, designed to uncover actions that could be taken straight away that would have no impact on quality or delivery for clients.
Parmenter said: “[This] Summer conference comes at the best time of year for us to reflect on how the business is doing. Prior to the conference, we engage with the team to find out what they want to hear and know more about and this helps to shape the content and agenda for the conference. The team is the most important part of the drpgroup and it is essential we keep them up to date with the latest news and activities of the business, giving them clear insight into the vital part they have to play in a successful future for the group.”
The last part of the day saw the drpteam take part in some teambuilding activities involving a F1 pit stop challenge. This saw the team changing the wheels of a formula 1 car in small groups and attempting to achieve the fastest time.
Local hotel Whittlebury Hall provided the accommodation and in the evening the drpteam had dinner and drinks at the British Racing Drivers Club.
Drpgroup recently appointed a new account director.
