Borras 2016 Staff Conference

This week saw Borras hold its annual staff conference at the Royal Windsor Racecourse. Mike Howlett opened this, his third conference as Managing Director with praise for the entire workforce following the companies’ impressive performance in 2015. Mike continued with the outlook and targets for 2016, which we are already well on course to achieve, thanks to several large contract wins toward the end of last year and start of this year.


Mike was followed by a presentation from our team of Resident Liaision Officers and a brief safety talk from Kane Blatchford, our Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental Manager.
