DRPG CEO, Dale Parmenter, said: “Like many other businesses, it has been a hard year for DRPG. The most important factor for us is protecting cash and our people. This conference like any of our others is to take stock of what we have achieved in these difficult times. Looking back at the journey we have been on as a team and how we have flexed the business, redeployed, and rolled up our sleeves to get it done has demonstrated the pioneering spirit and bedrock of our culture.
"This was a chance to thank the team for their hard work and commitment, among having to contend with own personal circumstances at home, be this family, home schooling and lack of face to face interaction. Team members worked around the clock to put systems in place and launch new processes and procedures to keep us all aligned and afloat. Now we are prepared and ready for this last quarter, and more importantly, we reset the momentum for our fortieth Anniversary next year and look forward to some exciting projects in the coming months, with a huge investment plan across the group.”
