On the 31st January, we held our Annual Supplier Conference at the Cottons Hotel in Knutsford. We were pleased to welcome over 80 suppliers to the event, where we presented information about Extentia Group, our future plans and aspirations for works moving forward, and how our supply chain can assist and get involved.
We also presented awards to our best performing suppliers of 2018. The awards are based on the performance measures completed by our site teams and #bethedifference cards that are awarded on projects.
A big thank you to our keynote speaker, Alistair Humphreys, British adventurer and author. Named as National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year for 2012, Alistair presented about his expeditions all around the world, travelling through over 80 countries by bicycle, boat and on foot. Alistair also spoke about how the first step to a new goal is always the hardest, but ultimately the most satisfying. He also encouraged everyone to do things differently and think outside the box, including holding meetings in the park with 'billy can' tea and climbing a mountain after work to sleep under the stars.
Thank you to everyone who attended the day, including our winners!
