Every two years the deugro Group holds its “deugro Global Meeting” with key staff members from all global offices to discuss and present the strategy and the plans for the future. GM2012, as it is called internally, was this year held in Mumbai, India after the previous meeting taking place in Dubai, U.A.E. in 2010. The meeting, attended by over one hundred and thirty deugro managers and staff, took place over a period of three days from September 28th until 30th. It was strategically planned to take place shortly after INTERMODAL India, but also had the serendipitous occasion of taking place shortly after deugro India won the “Freight Forwarder Of The Year – Project Cargo” award at the 3rd All India Maritime And Logistics Awards (MALA) at the beginning of September.
The meeting, in the format of switching between presentations as well as small workshops, was a successful mix of being both informative and educational in regards to initiatives and goals of the deugro Group. The meeting also included the traditional team building “fun event”. This year it consisted of building a seaworthy vessel from cardboard and then two brave individuals from each team needed to traverse the hotel pool in record time . As was clear from the start, the “M/V Executive Vice President Titanic” did not have the most successful journey.
Overall the “Meeting of the Minds” at GM2012, as per deugro’s slogan of Minds over Matter, was a success and a highly motivated team has returned back to their stations to begin planning 2013 and beyond.
