Flying into Monday with plenty to reflect on after a great afternoon at Google HQ on Friday.
Loads of insights, working models and creative ideas discussed... exciting times ahead!
It's sometimes hard to find time to be reflective and to share stories and experiences, so when I was asked to do a 'Speakers Corner' I was delighted to take up the opportunity.
Our HR Director, COO and L&D have all lined up to speak on different topics this summer, in an informal setting, with Team Members across HQ able to pop in. My topic was 'Marketing Myth Busting'. In classic fashion I thought I'd google some marketing myths for inspiration... I need to write a blog as nothing very helpful materialised! ...So instead I used some of my favourite sayings (said to me by various stakeholders which I have debunked as myths in my 12 years) and also spoke about career development myths too.
Thanks to all the Team who took time out - it was great to see people from different departments come along. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did and found the session useful.
Mad week of launches!
#AstonMartin global DBS superleggera launch events across the UK, then last night the second part of our A-Class Project (launching the new #MercedesBenz model) in Glasgow.
Up next this week the new #Ford store opening, the new Transit Centre, both in Preston!
What a week, what a team 💪A lot of different things going on a the 'dragon all the time!
Look at this lot! 😍
It's always hard saying farewell to our undergrad placement students - but Megs is back off to university! Good luck (she's super smart and motivated though so she doesn't need luck). AND we announced our May nominees and Team Member of the month - one of grad programme stars Reece ⭐️
I missed all of this as I was out of the office running around 😕 - but it's great that these moments of recognition are happening all the time 🙌 What a team. #ProudToBePendragon#undergraduate#talent#carindustry#marketing#events#digital#recognition#nottingham#martech

This week we have activities for National Apprentice Week, as well as the usual March market madness going on, but it is important to consider why we need a global #PressForProgress campaign, and how we can all lift each other up.
