Case study

Heidrick Consulting were looking for a venue in central London that could host a team-building event for up to 50 delegates.

The aim of the event was for delegates to do something a bit different to a traditional sit-down dinner but still be able to eat and have fun with their colleagues.

Check out their case study for more information.

Did you know?

This room is named after Sir Robert Watson-Watt, a British pioneer of radio direction finding and radar technology.

He pioneered the technology that helped win the Battle of Britain and was knighted for it in 1942.

Though scarcely remembered outside of his field today, Savoy Place dedicated this modern event space to his memory.
