Ashfield Meetings & Events unleash ‘The Power of You’
Ashfield Meetings & Events ran their annual conference The Lab on Thursday 23 August, at East Midlands Conference Centre in the University of Nottingham.
The Lab, now in its sixth year, is an interactive event for UK staff, dedicated to delivering continued professional development, building supplier partnerships and driving creativity. It is designed to complement the agency’s award-winning learning and development programme.
This year’s theme was ‘The Power of You’, focusing on the individual strengths of employees and how collectively they help to create solutions for clients.
The Lab will have 200 attendees (including a number of preferred suppliers) and provide staff with the opportunity to share their own stories through a combination of ice-breakers, facilitated workshops, AV demonstrations, external speakers and an exhibition environment.
Penny Callaghan, director of operations and business services, said: “The Lab is a valuable and important date in our calendar – as a business, we’re serious about developing and investing in our people. It is an opportunity for us to share insight and understanding, develop more collaborative relationships and build strategic partnerships.
