Managementors trip to France for annual Summer Conference

For this year’s Summer Conference, the Managementors team took a trip overseas to the Cognac region in the South West of France. This was a great opportunity to review the first half of the year, plan for the rest of the year and get the whole company together. A very busy three days consisted of planning, presentations, departmental reviews – and also some fun along the way.

The conference was held in a beautiful region of Poitou-Charentes, with the first morning consisting of a working breakfast and a review of the year so far, with an update from every department. Following the mornings work, the team embarked on a trip to Les Frères Moine, a local distillery, with a guided tour, barrel making, and some wine and cognac tasting. The evening consisted of a tasty BBQ along with some fun games of badminton, table tennis and volleyball! This was enjoyed by all after a hard day’s work, and enabled all departments to integrate and enjoy themselves.

The following morning consisted of more presentations with detailed overviews on current and upcoming projects, reflections on the first half of the year and brainstorming for the months ahead. Following the mornings presentations, the team had some free time to explore the local area, where some visited the beach, local markets, historical landmarks and nearby towns.

The Summer Conference was a great way to bring the whole company together, work hard but also play hard, and plan for a busy and exciting rest of 2018.
