Thomas Cook worked closely with DRP Group on the week-long conference in Palma from 14-21 March.

The event, which involved a plenary session, training and team-building, was a chance for Thomas Cook’s overseas managers from the UK, Turkey, Egypt and the Caribbean to plan the year ahead.

DRP Group managing director Dale Parmenter said: "The overseas managers represent thousands of people in the organisation and this is a chance for them to come together to plan the year."

Venues used include the Palma Aquarium Mallorca and Iberostar hotel.

Thomas Cook chief executive of group destination management Pete Constanti said: "We are a people business and that is what differentiates Thomas Cook. We always say we want our people to care more about Thomas Cook when they are at work than our competitors do about their businesses.

"The way you do that is through motivating, communicating and engaging with them."
