Representatives from our Sales teams across the Chess Group recently got together in Manchester for an interactive Growth Workshop. Led by Chess Sales Director and avid Porsche owner, Warren Pryer, the day involved getting to really know each other and the different areas of our business. The objective of the Workshop was to find more ways of working together across all areas of our business and becoming more adapted to the end to end service needs of our customers. The day began with everyone around the table introducing themselves, giving a snapshot of their clients and previous contract wins including Ramsey Heath Care, Nando’s, Kier Construction, Everest, and ScottishPower. This was followed by elevator pitches and customer profiling of our Business, Corporate, ICT, and Digital business areas.
