This came about as a result Springboard’s Waiters Day back in May, here at Delaware North we took it one step further and organised a #DNWaitersWeek to celebrate Front of House staff across our business. Throughout the week, testimonials were shared on social media around some of our teams’ ‘most memorable moments’, as well as each venue throughout the week having a day in which to highlight their work and commitment to their Front of House team. Delaware North also had a team in the infamous Hyde Park race, complete with on brand green and blue aprons.
On the Thursday of the week, we headed to London Stadium where Epping Forrest College were invited to an Industry Insight Day complete with their own Waiters race around the stadium, finished off with a delicious lunch cooked and prepared by our culinary team. To conclude the week off, myself and 3 other Ambassadors headed to a local school to tell year 10 students all about the wonderful world of Industry and the amazing career opportunities it can offer you.
This set us up well for the Head Office Cocktail Competition used to test the Cocktail Making skills of our Head Office staff (I’m proud to sayI won, which may suggest I like a cocktail or 3). After having planned the week’s events and seeing everything come together both across our social media content as well as the events we had on through the week, was amazing! This was truly a rewarding week for me and one that I am really proud to have been involved in and executed.
