Cricket and clients – Oban’s summertime away day

With the arrival of summer and the cricket season in full swing Oban invited clients to The Oval, London, for a get-together. From De Beers, Premier Farnell to Protect Your Bubble, it was great to see familiar faces take the time out to catch up socially. What better way to do it than watching one of the most eagerly anticipated cricket matches, England vs. New Zealand! With England having recently lost the ICC Champions Trophy match to India two days earlier, the game was full of anticipation and expectations.

After the success of last year’s client away day to Goodwood, it was nothing less than a fun-filled afternoon. The last over of the match was certainly the most intense with England needing 10 off the over. Unluckily, England settled with 196, just five runs short – a great score for a 20:20 – but not enough to beat New Zealand.

In response to the event, Oban Multilingual’s Client Services Manager Ben Lilly said: “It was super to catch up with clients informally. A good working relationship always starts with a solid communication relationship. This goes beyond desk bound duties to truly understand client expectations and needs. Here at, Oban Multilingual, we know how important it is to understand our clients’ values. Away days are a great opportunity to do this, as it gives everyone a chance to relax and network at their own leisure.”
