Spring Meeting 2017
The 2017 Spring Meeting was held at the newly-opening The Ned in the City of London, where we were guests of our Chairman, Gareth Banner, who is the Managing Director.
To reflect the venue and its location, as well as the exciting and rapid growth of new hotel concepts across the country, and, indeed, the world, the meeting focused on the theme of how are our businesses are going to meet the challenges of finding the teams to support us in the future.
Our programme of speakers included Craig Bancroft who has already championed a number of initiatives designed to better engage young people, in particular, in our industry. We also heard from Dr Anne Pierce MBE, chief executive Springboard UK, Ian Scarth from HIT Training, Gary Hunter, Vice Principal Westminster Kingsway College, Sally Beck from the Lancaster London and Beth Aarons from the Dorchester Collection. Lynne Copp, founder of the WorkLife Company, also joined us and provided some useful messages about how we should also not overlook ourselves as we engage in our own futures!
