International Managers Meeting

Daniel, Emma, Bill and Nicola attended the International Managers Meeting this year which was held in Utecht. What a beautiful city and a fantastic opportunity to meet everyone who is part of the Babcock Wanson Group. The various presentations were fascinating and provided some great information to bring back to our colleagues in the UK. We also visited Standard Fasel who are part of the group which was very interesting to see. It was also lovely to spend some quality time with the Babcock Wanson UK team and get to know them all better!
