The Directors were delighted to be joined by senior staff for two days of workshops at Wetheral, Carlisle.

The Directors of DSSR were delighted to be joined by senior staff from across the UK for a two-day session of workshops and future-planning for the company.

DSSR hosts a series of senior management meetings throughout the year to reflect on the performance of the business, identify objectives for the organisation, and ultimately create a clear vision for the future of the company.

The workshops were kicked off by our brand consultants, The Seed Project, who are in the process of supporting us through the next stages of DSSR’s brand evolution.

Seed hosted a great session, with fantastic contributions from all involved, during the course of which we set out targeted outcomes that will help us take the next steps in our brand journey–the first of which will be the launch of a newly developed DSSR website in early 2023.

The second day was focused on DSSR operational matters, assessing the company’s performance and planning for the future. This session was led by presentations from Bill Chalmers, Gordon Smith, David Guilfoyle, Matthew Day, and Fiona Williamson. Between them, a range of important topics were covered–including a thought-provoking input from Fiona, our Sustainability Lead, on ‘Meeting Net Zero Carbon Within the Construction Industry’.

The workshops were rounded off by a talk from guest speaker, Alexis Conran, the TV and Radio Presenter and Actor known for roles in The Real Hustle and winning Celebrity MasterChef.

Massive thanks to all the staff who took part, with particular thanks to the Seed Project and Alexis Conran!
