PERSOLKELLY Fremantle FC Leadership and Insights event

PERSOLKELLY recently held a leadership luncheon event on May 27th at the Fremantle Football Club to celebrate the launch of the latest Workforce Insights Report.  

Before getting down to serious business, guests were invited to watch the Dockers train on the oval as they arrived before Business Development Manager Ashley Speers gave an Acknowledgement of Country and an overview of the agenda. Ashley also showed a video about the club’s 2021 Indigenous guernsey that they wore in last weekend’s match against Port Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval. 

Executive General Manager Kurt Gillam provided attendees with an overview of the PERSOLKELLY story, talked through our strong legacy and shared our brand video. Fremantle CEO Simon Garlick spoke about the history of the club and its long-standing partnership with Programmed & PERSOLKELLY, with Programmed the club’s co-major sponsor in a relationship that now spans almost two decades. In good humour, any West Coast Eagles supporters were asked to raise their hand but in the end were allowed to stay for the event!

Ashley then spoke to the latest report entitled ‘From Job Seekers to Career Movers – What will Employees Prioritise in 2021?’, with key findings, some of which were published in the Australian Financial Review, discussed. 

Kurt hosted a fascinating panel Q&A with Dockers senior coach Justin Longmuir and star veteran champion David Mundy. Justin and David were generous with their time in providing a deep insight into four topics including footy, leadership, building an elite performance culture and attraction and retention of talent, all of which linked back to the business world.

Both Justin and David also provided a rare insight into their motives and inspirations stemming from their family upbringing. The room then mingled over a spot of lunch and discussion. Several guests took selfies at the event to send to friends, families and partners who passionately support the team.

Three door prizes were up for grabs including a signed football as well as two sets of corporate double passes to this weekend’s match against the Western Bulldogs at Optus Stadium. Those who didn’t win weren’t left empty-handed with PERSOLKELLY ‘Grow with us’ basil seeds to plant with the family, keep cups, mugs, notebooks, seeds and hard copies of the insights report all available to take home. 

There was a fantastic buzz in the room with clients chatting to each other, some of whom used to work together or are current clients of one another. Lots of positive feedback has followed the event, with clients finding the insights valuable and enjoying the great venue.
