A Helping Hand for the Samaritans
Yarnfield Park Training and Conference centre played host to a Council of Samaritans Event, giving them a helping hand on the way to ‘Destination 2015.’
One of the leading Midlands training and conference centres based in Staffordshire greeted 280 delegates, including Members of the Board and staff members from the General Office, for the three day residential conference.
The conference, part of ‘Strategy 2009-2015’ was a midpoint and focused on how Samaritans can respond to calls 24/7. Breakout sessions continued throughout the weekend, concentrating on discussions such as resources for branches and reducing their engaged rate.
Head of Sales and Marketing at Yarnfield Park, Richard Smith was thrilled with the success and management of the event.
“This event was particularly important to us as the Samaritans have been a client of ours for 8 years and counting. It allowed us to prove that even after all this time we are still the reliable and enthusiastic conference centre with the same brilliant facilities that they came to all those years ago,” says Richard.
“To be able to house all of the delegates in our on-site accommodation was a huge advantage, as it allowed the event to run smoothly, and cut the commuting time from hotels to allow the delegates to get the maximum from the conference.
“With all meeting rooms in the main conference building being utilized, it allowed the team to show off their excellent level of service and organisation, working very hard to make sure the Council of Samaritans Event was a success.”
The delegates, along with over 30,000 people a year the centre receives make use of facilities including onsite training courses, banqueting facilities, restaurant, gym and leisure amenities, high quality on-site accommodation, as well as 40 meeting rooms.
The venue, set in over 80 acres of picturesque Staffordshire countryside, provides a desirable location with a high quality, professional and dependable event management service, which are dedicated to making each event a success.
