WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Dear Paul, Thank you so much for everything you did for the team this week. As you know, this was very much a first-time event for us – so there was some uncertainty as to how it would play out and whether we would achieve what we wanted. I think the event exceeded expectations – the activities, the mountains and your team really did enable the team to get together and get to know each other in a way that would have just been unachievable in more conventional circumstances. The activities were perfectly judged to the requirement – and the weather the icing on the cake. And the discussions really did open up a necessary debate – again in a way that would not easily have been achieved in an office environment." (Chief of Staff to CEO) ”
