In June, CF swapped the office for our annual Summer away day. In the beautiful Holland Park Orangery, we had a morning of business updates and strategic planning as well as welcoming our new cohort of summer interns and analysts.

One of our key objectives for the year is developing our people strategy so we can be the best consulting and data innovation company for current and future team members who wish to develop and be internationally recognised experts in healthcare. The away day was an opportunity for everyone in CF to give their input into this, and shape the aims that will allow us to deliver on our ambition. At CF, we are also dedicated towards the net zero initiative; the lunch we enjoyed was fully vegetarian as part of this drive.

In the afternoon, we were able to let out our creative energy with a drumming session hosted by the hugely talented team from Corporate Drumming. This was a great opportunity to create sound in harmony (at times) and work together as a big team, using a variety of percussion instruments. Our awaydays are always a great way to get the whole company together in a relaxed environment, reflect on our progress and think about and plan for the future, and we are already looking forward to our next one in December.
