Outstanding Branding held their third annual Company Conference last week at Theobald’s Park Hotel in Hertfordshire, which aims to give the whole team a clear view of the Company’s goals and objectives for the forthcoming financial year.

On the hottest day of the year so far, the air condition conference room was a welcome relief with the morning session spent reviewing the previous 12 months performance, presenting company and departmental aims, and also each individual team member setting personal and professional goals for the next financial year.

‘Our annual conference is a great way to disseminate the Directors’ vision for the coming year, as well as make sure every individual knows how important their part in it is,’ commented Managing Director, Sarah Penn. ‘Giving everyone the opportunity to set their own goals is not only empowering but also allows the team to get to know each other better.’

The afternoon is traditionally a motivational and challenging session and this year was no exception, seeing the team breaking arrows on their throat; walking over broken glass; and finally walking over burning coals hot enough to melt metal. These challenges proved to everyone that nothing is impossible and we are all capable of achieving anything we set our minds to.

‘Having participated in a firewalk a long time ago, I know how life changing that experience can be’ said Andy Thorne, Sales Director. ‘To have the opportunity of sharing that experience with such a fantastic team of people was amazing and I know it will give them so much personal confidence for the future.’

After the conference, in order to celebrate a productive day, and a hugely successful year, Outstanding Branding once again invited their top suppliers to join them for their Summer Party. This year the party was Beach Party themed, and saw some great outfits from suppliers and staff, including plenty of Hawaiian shirts, a surfboard, two Baywatch lifeguards and a shark!

‘We’d like to thank not only our brilliant team but also our wonderful suppliers for helping us celebrate a year with such enthusiasm,’ said Sarah. ‘I really couldn’t ask for a better group of people to join us for our Beach Party and we’re already looking forward to next year’s conference and party!’
