drpgroup come together for best of business conference

The entire drpgroup
The entire drpgroup came together on Monday 14th July for their internal summer conference, held at Silverstone, the home of British motorsport. It was a perfect opportunity for the whole business to look back at the year so far and for each of the divisions to interact and take into account business achievements.  The theme of this year’s conference was “Best for Business”, presentations where mainly lead by group managing director Dale Parmenter with support from his board members and senior management team.

The day focused on the future plans and the vision of the drpgroup, taking time to look at the 5 year business plan, which aims to double the size of the business in the next 5 years .There were many elements to the day including speed dating with board members and managers where each division or business area had the chance to learn more about the functions of their fellow divisions. This led into a session on improving business efficiencies   uncovering actions that could be taken straight away that would have no impact on quality or delivery for clients.  

The conference helps to re-energise the team and give them better understanding of what direction the business is heading in as Parmenter explains; “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 team building 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.
