VMLY&R's global agency network offers its employees the opportunity to join the #GoingPlaces agency exchange programme, which operates across all VMLY&R offices.
Richard Moudrý, Digital Account Manager, from the Czech branch was successful in the selection process and went to London. He chose London as his destination not only because he has family ties to the city, is a fan of British humour and "British English", but also because the London office of VMLY&R has the same client in its portfolio that Richard works for in the Czech Republic. He was therefore able to share valuable experience with his London colleagues.
"What I appreciate the most is that I and the other participants of the programme were well taken care of, whether it was the airport transfers, the accommodation close to VMLY&R London or the varied programme and well-thought-out schedule. I had the opportunity to attend status talks and listen to presentations by the leadership teams. But what the programme brought me in addition is a lot of new friendships, extraordinary experiences and memories." The exchange program took place during the week when the entire VMLY&R network hosted the so-called Foundation Day. Richard took part in the 10 Miles for Tamara walk in support of an organisation raising funds to fight cancer.
"As well as new friendships, this whole experience has given me contacts that I will be able to use in the future when working on our projects. But most of all, I had many unforgettable experiences during my week in London. I would recommend the #GoingPlaces programme to my colleagues. It's been an amazing experience - we have great and very skilled colleagues not only here, but all over the world."
