Managing Director International Development
What a day we had last Friday, 29th June. Impetus Automotive held their biggest ever annual employee conference at Volkswagen Group’s National Learning Centre, home to our VWG training delivery team. And what a venue it was!
With nearly 350 employees gathered, some coming as far as Australia, we spent the morning updating everyone on the last 12 months of success within the business and a view into the future of the industry. Technology in vehicles and consumer behaviour is changing at a rapid rate and a variety of our Programme Managers and Consultants presented the impact of this on their areas of the business, from fleet to retail sales. We were also fortunate enough to beam in Professor Glenn Lyons, of University of West England, who was able to provide insight into the changing demographics and the impact on the transportation industry. Our aim was to equip our entire business with an insight into the future and ensure we are constantly thinking about how we can support our clients to overcome the challenges and exploit the new opportunities coming their way.
Following a spot of lunch in the 30 degree heat, the afternoon was an opportunity to break into small teams and compete to be top of the table. With our friends at Wild Goose, we created a range of activities and games including our very own ROI simulation game, escape rooms and a “pub” quiz to name but a few. The winning team, 3s & 5s (a cheeky combination of two teams), had a storming victory and each won a BOSE home speaker to take away with them.

We look forward to 2019 already.
