Business is Great – BPCC Summer Networking Reception

On Thursday, 29 August over 100 BPCC members and guests together with the UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) Team met at the British Embassy in Warsaw to celebrate the Business is GREAT campaign.

The guests had the opportunity to see the GREAT New Bus for London – the brand new successor of the legendary Routemaster – as it set off on the Emerging Europe leg of the GREAT Global Bus Tour organised to promote Poland and the broader Emerging Europe region as a GREAT place for UK companies to do business and to promote the UK as a GREAT business destination for Polish companies.

Partners of the event [loga] were HSBC Bank Polska, Dobre Wina, meetingpoint and the GREAT Britain campaign.

Antoni Reczek, chairman of the BPCC's Board and Martin Oxley, the UKTI's director in Warsaw welcomed guests. Dobre Wina offered some memorably excellent wines for tasting.

An additional highlight of the event was a toast to mark the 10th Anniversary of a BPCC member: meetingpoint – personnel search & selection.

“Ten years for a human doesn’t mean being a grown up, but for an organisation, it's a guarantee of maturity and expertise”, said Małgorzata Grodzka, managing director of the company. “We would like to develop further and share with our clients for the benefit of their organisations for many more years to go”. Małgorzata also revealed where the name of “meetingpoint” comes from: “Ten years ago, there was a decision from our mother company Ortus Consulting to provide recruitment services and to create an independent division; it was then that we enclosed our mission in one sentence ‘we are employee and employer’s meetingpoint’. So as you can see, the name for the organisation offering HR and personnel search, selection and training services could have been only one: ‘meetingpoint’!”

Participants were presented with “meetingpoint” branded gifts - business card holders. Happy anniversary, “meetingpoint” or better “100 years,” as Poles sing!

The range of services offered by the company for the past ten years include: personnel recruitment and selection; executive search; HR management support; staff testing and assessment; career and employee development; coaching and training programmes.
