Allstate inspire their leaders with Give a Hand
January 10, 2020
Allstate’s annual leadership conference in 2019 called on the services of motivational speaker David Meade and Lightbulb Teams to inspire their 200 senior leaders.
This in-person event, was held in the ICC Conference Centre in Belfast, and produced 50 prosthetic hands. These hands were all donated in Allstate’s name to individuals struggling with poverty in some of the most remote parts of the world.
“Allstate Northern Ireland was honoured to extend its Good Hands promise to the Give a Hand workshop this holiday season,” said John Healy, managing director and vice president of Allstate Northern Ireland. “Allstate is as passionate about serving customers as it is about having a positive impact in local communities year-round. We recognise the importance of socially responsible policies and providing our staff with the flexibility and resources to help those in need.”
David’s personal keynote and experiences on life without full use of your hands was thought provoking and set the seen for the activity.
“The mechanics of building these clinical prosthetic hands test critical business skills, including problem solving, teamwork, resilience and communication,” said Meade. “It was clear from this workshop that Allstate Northern Ireland have some of the brightest and best leaders working in the industry. The skills used throughout the workshop will ensure Allstate Northern Ireland remains one of the region’s most highly regarded employers.”
Allstate Northern Ireland’s desire to embed corporate social responsibility into its culture and business practices was the prefect fit for this programme.
