Leadership Lessons from LEGO Building success

Over 70% of homes have at least one stray brick buried deep in a sofa or hiding in the dusty corner of a cupboard.  With 33% operating profit on sales of £2710 million LEGO is a serious business.

Feedback: “Thank you for your help with our Brand Day. Your team were highly efficient and everything ran perfectly on time and as we had hoped it would.”

Fresh Tracks was asked to develop a programme for this event, with content that reiterated the benefits of the name change and highlighted Global Payments’ mission and values.
