It's a long standing relationship focused at Group level in Compass.  Through a program of live events, film and digital solutions, we enable their senior executive team to engage operational managers, across the globe, in the forward strategy.

The emphasis is on two-way dialogue and co-creative activities to adapt group strategy to local markets. We aim to motivate our audiences to be more creative in their workplace via creative leadership sessions.

We also create and manage forums to focus on food trends and their impact on the consumer, selecting panels of experts and managing content. And we select and manage innovative suppliers to present, display and share their initiatives.

We are indeed what we eat. And Compass proudly promotes health, vitality and wellbeing, nourishing a huge variety of people around the world. It is the world’s largest contract food caterer, with an annual revenue of £17.8 billion, providing high quality catering services to workplaces, schools, colleges, hospitals, seniors' accommodation and remote sites, including off shore and defence facilities.
