2017 Highlights

Quest has had another exciting and event packed year up and down the country…

Graduate and Apprentice Development Programmes

In association with Forward Learning & Development, Quest has developed a portfolio of exercises designed to help support Graduate and Apprentice training and development. These exercises can be incorporated into existing courses, as short two-hour interventions, or provide the framework for comprehensive ongoing programmes that are delivered in association with the client.

Achieving Great Things in Difficult Circumstances

Earlier this year, Quest returned to the Venture Centre in West London with Benson Elliott to undertake some much-needed renovations to the community centre. This event coincided with the tragic fire at the nearby Grenfell Tower. The Venture Centre was rapidly designated as an emergency refuge for the victims of the fire and a collection centre for the incredible amount of clothing and provisions that were donated by the public. Over the course of the event the enthusiastic team from Benson Elliott also completed some high-quality improvements including internal decoration and replacing a sizable climbing wall in the children’s play area.

Blast Off not Bake Off

Rocket launches have been high on client’s bucket lists this year. Quest has gone stratospheric at numerous venues in 2017 including Wokefield Park, the Celtic Manor Resort, and Pinewood Studios.

Internship with Quest

Earlier this year, Quest took on a paid intern. Emily joined Quest at the beginning of September, having graduated from Birmingham University with a first-class honours degree in Geography. Her observations of working in a small business make interesting reading:

“In an eight-week period, I have had the pleasure of brushing shoulders with over 1500 participants from apprentices to board directors. Some events were for as many as 500, down to small intimate and intense events with only 7 delegates. Being exposed to this wide variety of events, activities, clients and personalities was a great surprise, and provided me with an opportunity to learn a range of new skills. Seeing the whole process of the event, from start to finish, was incredibly interesting. Initially, when the last client left an event I, somewhat naively, thought we could relax and move on to the next project. In a small business, I felt my voice was hear. Being trusted and listened to helped my confidence grow and I could see the impact I made.”

Going for Gold

We were delighted to welcome double Olympic rowing champions, Helen Glover and Heather Stanning, to our Brecon Beacon Questars Adventure Race. It comes as no surprise to hear that the duo performed extremely well coming first in the Ladies Novice Category. In addition, this year’s overall series, consisting of five events, was won by Olympic silver medallist Campbell Walsh. We should point out that you certainly don’t need to be an elite athlete to participate in these events. Perhaps you would like to invite some of your colleagues to take up the challenge or undertake the event as a charity challenge. Whatever your motivation you are certain to receive a warm Quest welcome.
