Great welcome from the Hyde Housing team in London

I had a great welcome from the team at the Hyde Housing Group when I attended their special group development seminar staged in central London.
The Hyde Housing Group is one of the UK's leading and award-winning providers of housing.
Here are some key facts about the group -
  • £260m turnover
  • £2.9bn assets
  • 95,000 residents
  • 49,000 homes
  • 1,200 staff
  • 45 years old
As you can see, this is a big enterprise.
I was delighted to accept their invitation to be the keynote speaker at their group business  development seminar and 'away day'.
They were a great bunch of people and seemed to quickly grasp my messages about embracing change and keeping passionate about their valuable work.

Thanks go to group business development director David Gannicott for his great welcome.
The event was staged at Prospero House not far from The Shard in London.
During the afternoon, the Hyde team members went off on a special 'treasure hunt' around central London.
I helped a couple of the enterprising competitors tick a couple boxes - the ones for 'get a photo with a famous person' and 'get a famous person's autograph'!
I also made one young lady's day by talking on the phone to her Welsh mum!
