Our overdue year start meeting commenced on the 17th of this month. It was held at the Crowne Plaza in Marlow, and we were given the privilege of a stunning lakeside view.
We had a combination of physical and virtual attendees, and it was a great opportunity for us to all get together and reflect upon the successes, along with the downfalls of 2021, whilst also looking forward to the rest of 2022 and what lies ahead.
It was enlightening to hear from all branches of the WestWon family tree and their experience with 2021. This outlined their 2021 sales figures, and their longer term visions for 2022.
We are proud to say that we are the minority of leasing companies who actually hold year start meetings. As we believe that year start meetings are fundamental to get our team off to the right start. It is in effect a way to refocus, motivate whilst also allowing time for our team to socialise and in some cases acquaint themselves, especially this year with all our 8 new additions to the team!
As part of our team motivation objective, we invited former World Champion boxer and motivational speaker, Billy Schwer along, to get our team in the right mindset for the new year. We found him both insightful and inspiring.
After our pep talk from Billy, we made some time for some teambuilding activities, bringing everyone together to refamiliarize.
Later on, we went into Marlow for the evening to give everyone a chance to mingle and celebrate the end of 2021, whilst also welcoming the triumphs of 2022 in. We started off with drinks at the Duke of Clarence, followed by a delicious meal at Côte.
It was an amazing opportunity to recap from 2021. We acknowledge and praise all the team for their efforts, and plan and set out intentions for the year ahead.
