The event was designed to introduce and inspire 200 colleagues all of whom were new employees at the much publicised St George’s Park. The group consisted of all levels of colleagues from The FA, Hilton and Perform.
The event, held at SGP Hilton was split into 2 distinct sections. A morning session where, hosted by Mark Durden-Smith, the team leaders introduced themselves and talked about what SGP meant for them and their community. This session was kept fun and interactive by including innovative and engaging ice breakers. The session finished with interviews with Sir Trevor Brooking, Alex Horne and David Sheepshank. After lunch a team-building session took place with everyone being involved in the creation of a ‘big picture’, which perfectly demonstrated the power of effective teamwork at SGP.
The result was everyone left the day feeling excited and motivated about working at SGP, knowing their new colleagues and managers better and understanding that they represent a critically important part of something very special.
