the travelling roadshow - September 2013Alice Buchanan September 02, 2013 : 0
When the time came to present this year’s first quarter results, we decided to shake things up a little. For the first time ever we hit the road and travelled across the country to deliver it in person!
Both myself, and dtr marketing projects manager, Bek Wall, left our homes in Auckland and embarked on a travelling “roadshow” for three weeks. We created a presentation that highlighted first quarter results, key initiatives, upcoming campaigns and some research findings. Management staff from every dtr store across the country attended our six presentations in Hastings, Gisborne, New Plymouth, Greymouth, Christchurch and Dunedin.
We saw this roadshow as a great opportunity to chat and engage with staff and assure that they feel actively involved in contributing to the success of the company. It gave staff the opportunity to get involved in discussions around what was going on in the business – which is important to us. We had some great anecdotal feedback from staff that said they were pleased to hear the results directly. Phew, those 6am flights were worth it!
It was a hectic few weeks but we returned home absolutely satisfied with how it all went. It was great to meet some new faces and reconnect with the old ones and we hope everyone benefited from our visit. It’s definitely something we’ll look at doing again!
