Vistage International’s Monthly Blackburn Wing Peer Groups
WHICH VENUE DO YOU USE AT BOWCLIFFE HALL?
When I started with my leadership group over 6 years ago, I wanted somewhere inspirational, somewhere we could all look forward to going every month and somewhere that provided the right environment for thinking, learning, sharing and discussing. I looked at a few venues but after seeing The Blackburn Wing, there was no competition. The Wing provides the ideal space for senior leaders to get away for the day and work on their business in a light, spacious and inspiring location.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE EVENTS YOU HOLD PLEASE?
Every month my peer-to-peer Vistage group meet for a day in The Blackburn Wing.. Mornings are devoted to our wide-ranging speaker workshops (and every speaker without fail says the venue is one of the best they have ever been to) and in the afternoon members help each other think through their challenges, issues and opportunities.
HOW ARE THE FACILITIES IN YOUR CHOSEN VENUE?
The facilities in The Wing are just fantastic. The care and attention to detail is abundantly clear and provides an ideal setting for senior leaders to work together. Features such as the table made from an aeroplane wing, the leather seats and the aviation-themed fittings throughout bring genuine character to the venue and it still feels special coming to The Wing even after 6 years.
WHAT IS THE ROOM LAYOUT FOR YOUR EVENT?
The room is usually laid out boardroom style around the great glass-topped table and using a projector and screen. For larger groups we use round tables of 5-6.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT HOSTING EVENTS AT BOWCLIFFE?
Choosing one favourite things about Bowcliffe is really difficult. The amazing space in The Wing, the grounds and gardens are beautiful for small group discussion and reflection, the Drivers Club for one-to-one meetings and lunches and of course working with the team who look after us every visit.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE BOWCLIFFE TEAM?
Without exception, everybody on the staff at Bowcliffe Hall is great. We always get looked after superbly on meeting days and the team are really responsive and flexible to any last minute changes. The team are all warm, engaging and just so easy to work with that is completely removes any pressure from me on our meeting days. I trust them completely.
ON A SCALE OF 1-10 (WITH 1 BEING NOT AT ALL AND 10 BEING DEFINITELY), WOULD YOU RECOMMEND BOWCLIFFE HALL AS A CORPORATE EVENTS VENUE?
Unquestionably a 10 (provided it doesn’t get so busy I can’t get booked in!!)
