I’m Lee,Â site manager at Irwell Riverside, blogging about our latest staff meeting at Urban Splash.
Urban Splash is a very open and inclusive company; one of the best things we do is run this programme of staff meetings where my colleagues and I hear all about the business and our forthcoming developments.
The most recent meeting was hosted at Stubbs Mill in Manchester. Our brilliant guest speaker was eminent entrepreneur Simon Woodroffe whoâ€™s bringing his YO! innovation brand to Manchester in the form of 24 YO! Home apartments at New Islington.
As well as telling us all about YO! Homes, Simon delivered a broader honest and captivating presentation. Like Urban Splash he promotes a personal approach to business; he made me laugh when he said he had been in meetings where he had forgotten what the meeting was about because he was more interested in getting to know the person before the business at hand â€“ so he just kept changing the topic away from business.
In my day job at Irwell Riverside, I help turn the concept of hoUSe into a physical reality - giving customer the perfect place to live and call home - so I took a lot of the presentation on board. It was inspirational and a great story!
