Rowlands Pharmacy held its 2nd annual Employee Conference at the Holiday Inn Runcorn in June the theme of which was ‘Pride in Everything’

Delegates were invited to a Welcome Message and Dinner and given overnight accommodation with the conference taking place the following day. With delegates arriving and departing each day, (750 attendees over the 5 day period), there were plenty of logistics to contend with but the Conference Team made sure that everything ran to schedule.

The Welcome Message was delivered by Managing Director, Kenny Black and was followed by dinner. This gave the opportunity for staff from across the country to mix with the many Head Office staff that were in attendance.

The conference itself was split into two areas, an exhibition room and a lecture theatre.

The exhibition room was filled with stands from suppliers and Head Office departments. Suppliers were able to talk through and offer demonstrations of their latest products while Head Office departments had the opportunity to fully explain their role and answer any key questions.

In the lecture theatre delegates were entertained with interactive presentations from suppliers and Head Office staff. However, the highlight of the day was the team building session which saw 6 genuine rugby players burst through the doors and perform the Haka to a startled audience who were subsequently taught the traditional Māori dance.

All staff had a thoroughly enjoyable time and are looking forward to next year’s being bigger and better than ever!

    Delighted to be involved in the 2011 Rowlands Conference last week. The staff were very engaged and it was really enjoyable working with a positive group of Healthcare Professionals.

    Good luck for the rest of 2011.
