Well done Kenny Nicol and Effiom Eneobong who achieved their promotions to Assistant Owner, it was great to see them get the recognition as they move through the company.
Thanks to all our speakers on the day; Danny Wood, Nick Rees, Ieuan Roberts, Martin McCormick, Tim Rose, Debbie Bell, Tom Surtees, Ross Kennedy and Imran Younus. Your topics were inspiring and educational.
Getting to work with the successful country heads of America and one of the best vice presidents was inspiring to say the least. It was a full two weeks packed with wisdom, opportunity and inspiration which allowed us to see that the world is your oyster when in the world of Appco.
On the first day we had nothing but high expectations and went off to the field determined to do well which is exactly what we did, showing that hard work, dedication and a great attitude can be applied in any country still having the same effect and results, this shows that here in the UK and in around the world the system taught really does work. Our goal was to break the records and it was with great satisfaction we did it, setting ourselves up with great focus and determination for returning to the UK. It was good to use all the knowledge we took with us from working here at Oracle Advertising Ltd. We have set goals and know what we have to do to get promoted, so gaining experience working with and helping people from a completely different background, is another skill set we can add to our list.
Business over there was unforgettable getting to spend time in New York on the weekends was also amazing. Michael Scully kindly invited us to a premier club weekend where we went to watch a soccer match. As united supporters it was an interesting experience to say the least. The guys over there are a very close knit family and made us feel right at home which we are very thankful for. The weekends were spent cycling through central park, sightseeing at the statue of liberty, empire state building, ground zero, entering every possible toy and sweet store, visiting Madame Tassauds and a comedy club, and most importantly SHOPPING! Two weeks really was not enough. Undoubtedly an unforgettable experience.
The Hilton Hotel Manchester was the fantastic venue for Saturday’s meeting and a great day was had by all.
We had some motivating topics run by Ali Mir, Dan Thompson, Nicci Flynn and Danny Wood who not only educated but inspired everyone with their goals.
We were also lucky enough to have a guest speaker Darren Dunn who ran through some of the great success he is having with his organisation.
In the afternoon we heard from Ieuan Roberts, Nick Rees, Martin McCormick, Suzy Hussain, Matt Blackwell, Alyce Peatling and Imran Younus really proving how much Knowledge and success we had in attendance.
It was a real pleasure to see the promotions of the day; Tom Surtees, Gemma Hay, Ross Kennedy and Matthew Blackwell all getting their much deserved promotion to Ownership and who have already started proving their success in their locations. Congratulations also to Emma Rushon who got her promotion to Assistant Owner and Emine Sulyman, Sarah Foster and Danny Kelly who were promoted to Crew Leader.
Our very own Razina Mitha had a great day not only picking up her Rising star award but also getting her promotion to Crew Leader before jetting off to the US to work over there for a couple of weeks.
Congratulations to all the Rising Star winners, they were much deserved.
Razina and Liam are off to get a taste of Philly life following the success of Jack and Jon’s trip to the New York office in February. With America growing rapidly, Philadelphia, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies and the famous Rocky Steps, sees our latest expansion.
Razina and Liam have been offered this fantastic opportunity because of their progression through the company and are looking forward to taking their knowledge over to the State of Independence!
