Five reasons why schuh has partnered with Warwick Conferences for Learning and Development for 20 years
Here, Tempany Pilotille, Retail Training Manager at schuh, explains five reasons why Warwick Conferences continues to be the perfect fit, 20 years later.
1. The learning environment
L&D needs an environment which works for everyone and so the venue should always be an integral part of the programme. For us, external venues are crucial and Warwick Conferences offers us a premium experience within our budget, whether it’s through the rooms we use, the attention to detail they provide or meeting individual requirements.
2. Delegate wellbeing
Overnight accommodation is non-negotiable for our course as it runs for up to three days. It’s therefore important that we host at a relaxing venue which puts the wellbeing of our delegates first. Working with Warwick Conferences, we have multiple informal areas where delegates can relax, including the bar area where colleagues can reconnect on the opening night. The accommodation is also great as it is onsite, meaning delegates don’t need to travel far.
3. Unbeatable dining experience
When we follow up with the team following the course, it is immediately clear that everyone remembers the food. Whether it’s the incredible breakfasts, informal bar snacks or three-course dinners, our delegates always come back feeling well looked after.
4. Perfect location
It goes without saying that Warwick Conferences is perfectly located. With the team being based up and down the country, it’s essential that we have a venue which has good transport links. Warwick Conferences delivers on this, allowing people to fly in from Northern Ireland and Scotland, if required, as well as get a direct train.
5. Always pushing boundaries
Not only has Warwick Conferences been the perfect partner for 20 years, but it always encourages us to push the boundaries of L&D. Next year, for example, we’re going to see how we can incorporate its creative spaces – namely its kitchen rooms – into our management course. We are also hoping to capitalise on its outdoor areas, particularly its BBQs to make use of the fantastic spaces available to us.
