Background

Lloyds Bank plc is a British retail and commercial bank with branches across England and Wales and the principal subsidiary of Lloyds Banking Group. The Large Corporates team is part of its consumer section, looking after the banking relationships for Food, Drink and Leisure clients.
 

Sean Spiers, Associate, Large Corporates – Food, Drink & Leisure said: “This was our first meeting as a Food, Drink and Leisure team, pulling together all our people based in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Cambridge. We drew up an agenda which included a getting to know each other session, key themes across the sector and Brexit, amongst other topics.

 

Brief

“We decided to hold the first of our quarterly team meetings in Cambridge because of its history and culture and we also wanted somewhere fairly central within the city which was easy to reach from the bus or railway station.

We contacted Meet Cambridge at the beginning of January, only three weeks ahead of our meeting date, and within a few days they came back to us with suggestions including Trinity Hall which we chose. It was a very straightforward process.
 

Event

“Everything went smoothly on the day and we didn’t incur any challenges at all.
 

We had a boardroom-style layout which was perfect for our meeting and the team at Trinity Hall were great, explaining clearly about the timings for coffee, lunch and tea. They were also on hand throughout the day if we needed anything.
 

“The venue was very popular with all our colleagues, with many taking pictures of the College and gardens. We made the most of the ‘Cambridge Experience’ and after the meeting, we all went punting.
 

Feedback

“The service provided by Meet Cambridge was very prompt, efficient and knowledgeable and marked the start of a smooth process from start to finish.
 

“Trinity Hall is one of our clients and we would absolutely recommend hosting meetings there. Our mission statement is ‘Helping Britain Prosper’ and we look to use local venues where possible. We shall definitely return in due course.”
