Global creative communications group DRPG held their annual summer conference at Wyboston Lakes in Bedford, on Monday 15th July. The conference was attended by almost all 320 members of the DRPG team including the wider group.

The jam-packed itinerary started with an outline of the next 4 years and the ambitions to grow and add further clients to its roster.

Following on, ‘The Big Debate’ was made up of 12 open sessions, encouraging free conversation across different issues that affect the business now and/or in the future. Topics varied from leadership to mental health to AI, all based on subjects developed from employee feedback.

Next up was the ‘expert panel’ including, new to the board, Lord Digby Jones, Sam Wilson from Eco events, speaker and author David Meade and head of customer insight and innovation Callum Gill. The panel looked at the external influences and factors which will help or hinder the growth plan.

CEO Dale Parmenter commented, “It has been another great year for DRPG, and our conference is a great way for us to celebrate our many achievements together as a team and importantly look forward to our 40th Anniversary next year. We have already overtaken last year’s record performance of £31M and 2019 is stacking up to be another great year with our continuing global expansion with bases now in Ireland, Germany and the US as well as across the UK, and the huge multi-millionaire investment happening at HQ in the creation of our new creative, design and communication centre.”
