Gold medalist Adam Whitehead leads Baker Mallett Leadership Session

Former Commonwealth Games gold medalist Adam Whitehead leads Baker Mallett Leadership Session in Head Office, Warrington.

As a business, we have never stood still and we truly believe that it is our commitment to change and moving forward that has enabled the business to exist for over a century. The global pandemic has changed us all, individually and collectively and so last week, our senior managers decided to devote some time for reflection and realignment after this extraordinary time.

We did this via a performance workshop focused on teamwork and marginal gains which was delivered by multi medal winning swimmer Adam Whitehead on behalf of Dame Kelly Holmes Trust*.

Our leadership team described the session as enlightening and engaging with Neil Griffiths, CEO, commenting “It is all too easy, particularly when you reach management level, to assume there is nothing new to learn. Today only reinforced that for me. Adam’s session reinvigorated the importance of honesty and teamwork in our team as we discovered how the interplay in our relationships affects our whole operation”.

Adam Whitehead added

“I thoroughly enjoyed my session with the leadership team at Baker Mallett. Being able to utilise my experiences in elite sport and share the importance of teamwork, communication and high performing mindset to benefit the team was fantastic. It also demonstrates that the Trust’s work in supporting world class athletes can not only benefit young people facing disadvantage but businesses as well.”

We look forward to continuing our relationship with Dame Kelly Holmes Trust during the next six months of our sponsorship and beyond.
