The Swindon-based venue-find and event management agency, Venues and Events International, has recently re-launched their values to the business following growth of business. 

 Operating now with more than 30 staff, the business has recently taken on additional office space at Lotmead Business Park to accommodate for their growth. Now branched out across several offices, it was important to ensure the team continued to work as one and provide the high-level of service expected from our clients.  

 Company culture and values has always played a big part in the strategy of the business and it is important that every member of the team believes that they are ‘at the heartbeat of events’.  It’s their mission to provide the appropriate framework within which formulates their corporate strategy: “…To delight our clients, living and breathing their events as their chosen agency…” 

 Kim Collins, Account Director at Venues and Events International had this to say about their recent values day; “Having only been back with the company a few months, I wanted to get back into the culture and truly get behind the core values of the business. With several other staff members joining at a similar time, it seemed appropriate to re-launch the values to ensure all employees were embracing them in the same way. We engaged with Echo Fox, a strategic partner of ours, who supported our objective in bringing our values to life with a full session of interactive sessions. The team came away feeling energised and inspired and have embraced the values in which they work to.”   

 To support their corporate strategy, the six values re-launched to the business were: 

  • Boutique  
  • Caring 
  • High customer touch 
  • Part of our clients’ team 
  • Making our time valuable 
  • Partners of choice 

Anita Lowe, CEO for Venues and Events International finishes with; “It was fantastic to see the team come together, go back to our roots, and remind them why we do what we do. I believe the growth in our business is largely down to the fact that our employees do embrace who we are and what we aim to achieve for our clients. We’ve had clients work with us for nearly 30 years who I know see us as an extension of their team and embrace our values into their own company culture. It’s working in partnership like this that helps us to believe in ourselves and continue to grow.”
