I’ve worked in Wesser for nine months now, and during that time I’ve always looked forward to the seminars. Held every few months, I’ve now attended four of these.
It’s a testament to what a great Company Wesser is, that they invest greatly in training, equipping and rewarding their employees, and that is exactly what these events do.
From the outset, these weekend events are a great opportunity to meet not only fundraisers and team leaders from across the country, but office based staff and Management too. And the top banana himself, Martin Wesser, makes great effort to speak to as many people as possible, encouraging and giving praise where due.
Over the four seminars I’ve attended, I’ve been involved in presentation battles, learned a most annoying chant/rap with actions, received invaluable information from St. John Ambulance England and Wales and also received First Aid Training. There’s also been many sessions where extra training has been given on the various aspects of the job like ethical fundraising, the presentation and a unified close.
A highlight is always the awards dinner in the evening where, after eating a great meal, certificates are given out to those in the Company who have been doing very well. These certificates can include subjects such as “Team of the Month,” “Best Average Donation” and “Team Leader Promotion.”
The Wesser seminars are a vital part of the job where all in attendance will leave feeling much more a part of something big and special, that they are making a difference, and going back to their teams knowing they are more equipped than they were before.
Well done Wesser.
