Take a look at some of the things we've been up to lately: projects, events and even meetings that we've had to give you an idea of what we get involved in. If you'd like to talk to us about working with you on a project or an event, a consultation or a meeting, get in touch; we'd love to chat.
Open Doors 2021
We were so pleased to be involved, working with our client St Modwen Homes, in this year's Open Doors 2021 event after 2020's event was inevitably cancelled. 'Get Into Construction' was the message and it was all about encouraging people behind the hoarding and to showcase the diverse and exciting careers available in the construction industry.
St. Modwen Properties partnered with Jen Healy Innovations in 2020 and 2021 for the annual Build UK Open Doors event which gives students, colleges and the wider public assess to see behind the hoardings and explore more about the Construction Industry. Throughout the process Jen and her team deliver quality CSR contacts, are able to shift and adapt to constantly changing situations and all done with the perfect mix of professionalism and humour. She took the strain on this nationwide event for myself, and as such the tours we delivered were insightful and impactful to the next generation of Construction Professionals. Thanks Jen and all your team.
