The theme for the 2016 conference was ‘Innovation and Collaboration’, offering staff the chance to reflect on the last six months and plan for the next six months.

Commenting on the conference, CEO Dale Parmenter said: "Our annual summer conference is an essential part of our internal communications, in terms of reflection and forward thinking. Our team is an integral part of drp and it is vital to emphasise to the team the roles they play in the success of the business." He added that the team was motivated for the next six months, with the office expansion well underway and training and development programmes in place. 

"2016 so far has been a great year for drp in terms of growth, with 26 new clients in the last 12 months helping to push sales figures upwards, as well as an increase across existing clients. This is why drp is investing heavily in people development, facilities, and infrastructure. We are highly optimistic for 2017 and 2018, having confirmed projects already, and the company is working towards what will be a record two to three years."

Drp's new clients include EE, Arriva UK, and Fiat Chrysler.
