Jason takes part in ‘McClaren High Performance Day’

Posted on the 10th February 2013

Our CEO Jason Holt recently attended an exclusive ‘High Performance Day’ at McClaren Applied Technologies, receiving a rare behind-the-scenes peak into the world-class technology and engineering company. The exclusive trip was a special treat for The Growing Business Award finalists following Jason’s win of the ‘Local Hero 2012’ award in November. Whilst Formula 1 may seem a million miles away from the world of business, the thinking behind the trip was to see how disciplines and pressures of this high-speed environment can be applied to the world of business. Speaking about the knowledge he had taken from the day, Jason said McClaren had re-enforced his belief that a focus on measurement is the key to good business "Business needs to apply measurement to their own performance. Take the sales process: every stage of the sales pipeline needs to be monitored and measured. Without these numbers how can you change them. Improve them?" The work culture also resonated highly with Jason who summed up the day saying "all the staff have a can-do attitude. They must feel fantastic working in that environment."
