Visit to Ordnance Survey


Firstly, I would like to thank you again for the wonderful reception and brilliantly organised event. I hope there will be may more similar events in years to come and if anyone is ever in doubt as to whether they should DSC_0514participate in GeoVation events or not, my advice is very simple & straightforward: they definitely should! 

The day was very busy and full of interesting ideas, brain-storming sessions, insight into and detailed overview of the Ordnance Survey headquarters, its IMG_0449business and various departments. However, for me the best part about the day was actually getting to know the people at Ordnance Survey. 

I run a technology start-up and what drives technology start-ups is nothing more than sheer passion & love of the industry, but you don’t expect to see that at large organisations. Nevertheless, this is exactly what I saw at Ordnance Survey. I am not sure how Ordnance Survey have managed to motivate and inspire 1,000 plus employees, but if you want a boost of positive energy and first-hand proof that even large organisations can keep their people engaged and fascinated by their jobs – come and visit Ordnance Survey!
