M&T Resources Sales Conference 2015: Great cause for celebrations

M&T Resources recognised the exceptional performance of its employees at its annual Sales Conference, which was held at the Sanctuary Cove in Queensland this year. The M&T Resources Sales Conference has always been a time to learn, get together with teams across Australia, and to have lots of fun at the same time.

Held over three days, the conference started off with Chris Sandham, Managing Director, recapping a highly successful financial year that saw M&T Resources achieving 11% revenue and 42% EBITDA growth year-on-year.

“The success of M&T Resources is possible only because of its people, so a big Thank You goes to all our staff. It’s why the conference is all about helping each M&Ter achieve even greater success – so that they can continue to reach greater heights for our clients and candidates,” said Chris.

Day 1

The program began with the first group of ‘graduating’ Leaders from the M&T Academy facilitating a session focused on the topic of M&T Resources’ Core Purpose: “To help people achieve greater success”. Divided into teams, M&Ters were briefed to express the core purpose statement through painting. This created some discussions on what the core purpose means to each person as they brainstormed on how to bring it alive.

Day 2

Facilitated by the second leadership group of the M&T Academy, M&Ters were broken into groups for a songwriting and performance competition. Teams were required to incorporate the “11 Qualities of a Successful M&Ter” – a list of habits / behaviours that we believe contribute to success at M&T Resources.

To experience what life is like being an amputee, M&Ters had their preferred hand bound in the process of building the prosthetic hands. M&T Resources Recruitment Sales Conference DSCF1358 M&T Resources Recruitment Sales Conference DSCF1362 M&T Resources Recruitment Sales Conference DSCF1365  M&T Resources Recruitment Sales Conference DSCF1368 M&T Resources Recruitment Sales Conference DSCF1372
