The Interactive Team Meet

For those of you who don’t know, The Interactive Team Meet is our company’s quarterly national conference and it’s an amazing opportunity for everyone invlved with The Interactive Team to get together to discuss the future of the company, the revolution of our industry and the direction of our people’s careers.

it1  Over the last 3 years, our team has grown from just 3 people and 2 credit cards to a nationwide group of over 150 dedicated, motivated and passionate entrepreneurs, creating something special in the form of a highly profitable business dedicated to putting our clients, our customers, our events and our team first.

Of course, everyone involved is based in different city centre locations across the country. We now have offices in Glasgow, Manchester, Dundee, London and Newcastle, and a team of over 150 professionals across the UK. Not bad for just 3 years eh?

However, just because we’ve expanded certainly doesn’t mean we want our ethos and goals to be diluted. As a company, we wanted to ensure that we remained to be a close knit unit of talented individuals who work closely together to take campaigns, clients and careers to the next level. With this in mind, every quarter, we have held an event we like to call “The Interactive Team Meet”. This event is a great chance for everyone involved with The Interactive Team to get together and network, put faces to names and enjoy seminars delivered by different Directors.

Our third quarter team meeting was held once again at the stunning Midland Hotel in the heart of the city of Manchester.

Team members atit5tended from major cities across the UK, including Glasgow, London, Newcastle and Dundee. We came together to celebrate what has already been a successful start to the year for the company, but in
reality, we really haven’t started yet. The meeting was opened with an inspirational speech from our CEO, Gilles Baudet, who talked about the future of The Interactive Team, and I’ve got to admit, I was hooked on finding out more about our goals and more importantly, how we’re going to achieve them!

Following the CEO’s introduction, the team split up into groups and enjoyed seminars led by our Campaign Directors. Just a few of the topics included ‘Sales Genius’ delivered by Glasgow’s Joel Richardson, and an insightful look into purposeful thinking from Manchester’s Director, Huw Devonald. Not only was it a fantastic experience to be motivated, educated and inspired by the Board of Directors, The Interactive Team Meet is also a unique opportunity for everyone to get to know one another.

As we have a national bulletin that gets distributed to each office on a weekly basis, it’s always clear to see who the top performers are within each city, so at The Interactive Team Meet, it’s great to grab those high flyers for a bit of networking and to swap contact details for more Q&As! Recognition was received by the following consultants for their recent efforts and top performance in each city:

Ross Macleod (Manchester), William Ritchie (Newcastle), Michael McCourt (Glasgow), Nathan Queen (London), Steven Funai (Dundee)

The Interactive Team Meet was a fantastic event, not only because we were all able to come together to form the future of our company, but it was also evident to see how far people were progressing in such a short space of time. Everyone at The Interactive Team is incredibly proud of everyone involved – we are all working towards one common goal, and we’re certain we’ll surpass it!
