Ali takes some time out for a Sector Review and Team Building Day.
Half way through already!
As part of my Sector placement I was lucky enough to join the team for their Team update down on the coast in Hamble. What followed was an informative presentation about how the different areas of the business and the business and industry as a whole are performing and an overview of upcoming events. It was interesting to see the figures behind the brands that we are all getting to see and work in, as well as getting an understanding into what the effect of global incidents has. The TUI sponsorship of the charity Street Child and the Street Child World Cup in Rio 2014 was also announced, a project that Darren Mee explains more about in the video below. (more to follow in the next blog!!!)
The afternoon was spent sailing with the Sunsail team on their new fleet of F40’s. To say there was a bit of wind is an understatement, at one point our boat was doing over 11 knots. It was great fun and gave an opportunity for everyone to get together and spend some time with one another in a great setting. As a graduate on this scheme it is great to experience the Sector at the different levels, all the way up from the Brands to the central Sector team. After a fine meal, fun evening and an overnight stay on the Yachts it was back up to Crawley and back to work… take a look at the video below, talking about the new ‘Street Child’ Initiative:
