Summer Event 2017
In June, we hosted our summer event at the Wokefield Estate in Reading. It was fantastic to see so many of the team taking the opportunity to catch up and celebrate our achievements. And who could forget David Meade, an international speaker whose entertaining and thought-provoking performance made us all think critically about the challenges around us.
Project One in an ever-changing business world
Managing Director, Terry Holland, took to the stage to share his thoughts on Project One in an ever-changing business world and, with some of the team, talked through their insights and observations. We all gained an even better understanding and pride in the great work that Project One undertakes for our clients, every day.
Project One’s growth during the last four years equalled that of the previous 15 years, emphasising that we are moving from a small to medium sized company, and certainly operating in a different world from 10 years ago.
We were reminded of our values, created by our team. Each one represents Project One’s DNA. Whilst Project One has been extremely successful, improvements can always be made. So, together the team considered how we might think and act differently to have an even greater impact on our clients and services, whilst protecting what makes Project One special as we grow.
David Meade – Astonishing and brilliant!
We had the pleasure of welcoming David Meade to speak at our event. David is a researcher and lecturer in international business with one of Ireland’s leading universities, whose personal interests have always focused on aspects of popular psychology, consumer behaviour, and choice.
Having caught the bug for mindreading and mentalism as a teenager, David has been honing his act for nearly 20 years. David enlightened us with ways in which, by making small changes, we could make a greater impact on our clients and inevitably bring about greater success for not only our clients, but also for Project One.
As the summer evening sun fell over the Wokefield Estate terrace, we donned our finery for an evening of celebration in the quintessentially summer setting. It was a time to raise our glasses to toast our finest at our annual awards ceremony, where we were proud to recognise the outstanding contributions from the team. The six awards were based on our values which recognised those who consistently bring alive each value for the benefit of our clients and our business. To round things off we introduced a new Project One ‘Award for Excellence’, for an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding, ‘excellent’, contribution in whatever they do, whenever they do it. Congratulations, once again, to all our nominees and winners.
Colleague feedback was fantastic …
“Wow, this is not like other company events I have been to. This is fun. And genuine.”
“So well put together and executed. It was great to hear all the company news and challenges, and to catch up with old colleagues and friends. David Meade was brilliant!”
