Q What type of events does PWC run?

A There's a huge variety of events, from internal meetings and day training for staff and clients to staff conferences and client dinners. I would estimate that PWC holds up to 1,500 events annually.

 

Q How does PWC select destinations for events?

A Our meetings are usually cross-territory so they have to be in locations that are easily accessible to people coming in from all those countries.

 

Q What overseas destinations has PWC used?

A We use destinations everywhere as we are a global company. In Europe, we have used Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris and Amsterdam.

 

Q Does PWC have a preferred supplier list?

A We have about 400 venues on our preferred supplier list. It's quite tricky to get on the list. You'd have to bring something unique.

 

Q How has the PWC brand evolved in your time at the firm?

A It's grown into the leading professional services firm that provides flexible working with strong values. We take our role and impact on society seriously and think about the communities we touch and the environment we impact. And I'm proud of that.
