“As an organisation we are at the stage of seeking the next step and moving the business forward and as an important part of that is to embed a different mindset and therefore a change in culture, and the way we decided to do that was around a set of values that we are looking to implement in the organisation. So those are our objectives. They have absolutely been met by the events we have had over the last couple of days. There has been a lot of energy, a lot of activities that have been constructed around our values and it’s been an incredibly successful event.”
