Green Directions, located at our vibrant and stimulating farmhouse, is the perfect setting for conferences, training events, away days, educational visits and weddings.
GREEN DIRECTIONS FOR BUSINESS
Green Directions provides a high quality service for business events.
Our conference room is spacious, bright and colourful. It is equipped with a top of the range interactive white board which substantially raises the quality and credibility of presentations and presenters.
The full suite of Microsoft Office software is installed together with video-playing and Smart Notebook software. The Notebook software removes the need for flip charts as notes can be created using electronic pens.
All the notes and presentation slides can then be emailed to delegates so that a comprehensive record is made of the day’s learning and decision-making.
Presentations and videos look particularly effective on the 77 inch screen.
Spectacular views of the Peak District National Park inspire delegates to think afresh about the opportunities and challenges facing their businesses while our green technologies show how businesses can become more sustainable and therefore competitive.
