Last week saw representatives from the winning organisations of the 2011 Games come together for an exceptional event at the prestigious Gherkin building in London.
Hosted by CSC, Platinum sponsor for the 2011 and 2012 UK Corporate Games, the guests relived their successes and team achievements over drinks and canapés. The Celebrations were followed by a formal podium presentation, where the winning organisations’ achievements were fully recognised.
Caroline Whalley-Hunter, Finance Director for CSC joined Corporate Games Life Members, Rose D’Costa MBE and Peter D’Costa MBE, in presenting the Corporate Awards to each organisation.
Caroline described the Games as “the best investment of its kind, offering limitless opportunities to organisations for team building, improving fitness in the workplace, widening employer engagement whilst also providing exposure to new clients” which, is what she calls “real value for money.”
Representatives from a host of organisations like Vodafone, Accenture, Onwards & Upwards, Ernst & Young, IBM, Intel, East Midlands Airport, Asda, Fujitsu, Towers Watson, KPMG, Lloyds Banking Group, RWE NPower, Nationwide, John Lewis Partnership, Sparta and Paul Lewis Haulage were recognised – each one proud of their team’s successes.
It comes as no surprise that these companies have already started to prepare for next year’s event.
With the UK Corporate Games landing in Preston for the Olympic year – the room was alive with talk of next year’s teams, including competitive yet friendly banter between organisations.
Wendy Gannaway, Managing Director of Onwards & Upwards, urges other companies to join in and sign up for the Games in Preston for 2012:
“No matter which who you are or what you do, the Games has a sport for you. It is an incredible event that guarantees a fantastic sports experience and an opportunity for you to really let your hair down and enjoy yourself. You’ll meet some fantastic people across the weekend from all walks of life, all over the UK. Win, lose or draw, my team are always buzzing after the Games weekend – it is the talk of the office on Monday morning!”
Our sincere congratulations go to all our Award winners for 2011 – and we look forward to seeing the teams again in 2012 to defend their titles!
