Ready, Steady, Bake!


The LDP leadership group was back in action last week – this time to lead the launch of our awesome company common room, ‘The Hub’.

The leaders were presented with the task of planning, baking and presenting a special morning tea for all the Bristol based staff of SmithCorp.

Under the tuition and guidance of award winning baker Steve Tucker (Head Baker from Bakesmiths – the local supplier of our daily breads and pastries to ‘The Hub’), Paul, Tony. Andy, Hannah, Adam, Ben and Dom were soon ‘hands deep’ in dough, flour and spices baking delicious Chelsea Buns, Pain Au Raisins, Nutella Danishes and Savoury Twists.


It was then a case of event thinking, planning and rehearsing as the leaders prepared all aspects of the presentation to ensure an informative and memorable ‘Welcome to The Hub’ event for approximately 75 employees.

All went smoothly as each of the three groups experienced the various culinary delights, followed by a tour of the many features within the outstanding communal area.


Well done to the LDP group! The proof was not only in the pudding as upon reflection each leader then identified key leadership learnings to implement to ensure the ongoing success of their own team and business area.

The LDP guys would also like to thank all the attendees. It was a great event and we look forward to seeing everyone each day … eating, relaxing and enjoying the many spoils within our ‘Hub’.
