News: Coca-Cola Enterprises open Retail Training Environment at Highgate House.
8 Jul 2010
Sundial have always prided themselves on adopting a flexible approach when it comes to how clients use their facilities, but a recent project for Coca-Cola Enterprises at Highgate House in Creaton, Northamptonshire has gone above and beyond anything they have done before.
The Coca-Cola Enterprises Retail Training Environment looks, to all intents and purposes, like a small newsagent and it has been situated within Highgate House for the company to use as a more realistic learning environment for many of its key training courses. Containing all the equipment, fixtures and fittings that you'd expect to find, the area will be used for training the Sales Team in site visits, sales appointments and outlet inspections.
Robin Lilley and Adam Kercher of Coca-Cola Enterprises, along with Lucy McGibbon and Mark Cooper, Directors of Sundial Group, have been overseeing the transformation of a previously-empty room into a fully equipped Retail Training Environment. "We wanted to take these courses out of the classroom and hold them in something that more closely resembled the real world in which they'd be putting skills we teach them into practice," explained Robin, Head of Learning and Development for Coca-Cola Enterprises in Great Britain. "The support that Sundial Venues showed us with this project, both financially and with regards to the time they have spent with us, has been absolutely invaluable. However, it was no less than I have come to expect after having worked with them for over three years now".
Cola-Cola Enterprises manufactures and distributes Coca-Cola products, as well as those of other brand owners, and employs around 4,500 people in Great Britain across seven manufacturing sites and a number of regional offices and depots.
