It’s not every day that your classroom has a panoramic view across London out the window! Well, today students from Lady Margaret Primary School got the chance to work with employees from Brewin Dolphin, the investment management company based in the heart of The City of London on an enterprising task. They would be planning a celebration event for the hardworking employees and with themes, entertainment and budgets to think about, there was no time to waste.

Interviewing the volunteers

So, when planning a celebration event it was essential to find out just what the people from Brewin Dolphin would want. Students interviewed their clients and asked intriguing questions, such as ‘what kind of decorations would you like at your event?’ or ‘What awards would your employees want to receive?’ This was a great way of doing some market research to plan the best event ever.

Planning the event

With some great research completed, it was time to generate some ideas of their own. ‘Super Dolphin Party Planners had an amazing four-in-one-theme ‘to make sure everyone who worked in the office was happy’. With 80’s, techno, James Bond style, and classic themes this was sure to be a fun night. The ‘Proud Party Dolphins’ had a dancing disco and asked their volunteer Ed who they might want to make the big speech to announce the awards. The teams listened carefully to his advice and decided on a speech from David Nicol, CEO.

Presenting their ideas to the judges

Ideas a plenty, the students needed to think of an exciting way to pitch their ideas to the employees from Brewin Dolphin. Well, it was certain that creativity was in no short supply. The ‘Party Dolphins’ explained their ‘mouthwatering pizza’ and encouraged people ‘to bring a dish from home’ to save money. And the Brewin Dolphin Eventors used humour and actions in their presentations to share their exciting ideas and luxurious prizes, a holiday in Spain, now that is certainly a way to boost employees.

With only one winner possible it was a tricky decision. It was decided, the winners were the ‘Yata Dolphins’ who wowed the judges with their amazing ideas and their professionalism.

Congratulations to all the teams who put their all into the day. With so much excitement in the room and ideas a plenty, it seems that there may be some party planners in the room.
