Founded in 1998, Google has come a long way from a dorm room and a garage. Today it has over 70 offices in more than 40 countries around the globe, employing in excess of 50,000 people, but working together and interacting to achieve big while having fun is still what it’s all about.
Repeatedly voted the best place to work in both the US and UK, Google is renowned for its talented and passionate workforce as much as it is applauded for its highly creative, relaxed and exciting working environments.
With no two Google offices the same, this exclusive on-site visit will explore the surreal workspaces, quirky meeting rooms and even a secret garden on a roof terrace, as we lift the lid on how Google has built and maintained an extraordinary company culture that not only drives the business forward, but actively supports SMEs to overcome the challenges of business growth.
You will hear from senior ‘Googlers’ about how it is really the people that make Google the kind of company it is and how they strive to maintain an open culture, the kind often associated with start-ups, so that everyone is able to be a hands-on contributor and feel comfortable sharing ideas and opinions.
Google’s mission is to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. This is your chance to look beyond the shiny exterior of the buildings and company and go behind the scenes to find out why they make their spaces so ‘Googley’, and how they see this as a fundamental part of the innovation process that keeps them ahead of the their competition.
Please note that places are strictly limited for this on-site visit, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
*There is no cost to attend this event for members, but you will need to arrange your own travel to London.
