The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre celebrates 20 years of growth
The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre, the only dedicated residential management training centre in Cambridge, celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2012 with a range of events that will be held throughout 2012.
The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre's history is one of Cambridge's best kept secrets. The Maersk Mc-Kinney MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre for Continuing Education was built with a gift of approximately £10 million to Churchill College. The money was donated by the A.P. MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller & Chastine Mc-Kinney MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Foundation, a Danish charity, set up in 1953 by shipping magnate A. P. MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller. The Foundation makes contributions to good causes, especially those involving national heritage, shipping, industry and science.
The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Churchill College in the University of Cambridge, and today provides Churchill College with nearly £1000 each year towards the cost of education of each Churchill student. The Centre's success and growth over the last 20 years has been due largely to the exceptional service it provides for its clients, and its forward-thinking attitude to business growth and diversification. This has won the Centre numerous awards and accolades.
Today, The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre has three core areas of the business: providing a conferencing and management training facility, learning and strategic support to the professional service firms market, and executive education.
The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre has achieved a 2* outstanding rating in the Best Companies process. With 20% more full time staff employed over the last year to assist with growing business demands, achieving this great result has been through recognising that one of the most important assets to the company is their staff.
Last year The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre achieved Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…â€œOne to WatchÃƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‚ accreditation in the Best Companies process, the next milestone would be achieving 1* status, however, The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre has exceeded their expectations and achieved the 2* status, one of the highest categories.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…â€œThe loyalty and support we get from our clients has allowed us to grow, employ more staff and support the local community.Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‚ Says Gillian Secrett, CEO of The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre. Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…â€œWe take the recruitment, development and training of our staff very seriously which is reflected by our very low staff turnover ratio, a very unusual statistic in our demanding industry. This Best Companies result is an award for our staff to recognise and further develop their skills and career at The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre.Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‚
It's Gold again for The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre in the 2011 BDRC Continental VenueVerdict awards. To achieve this standard, The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre must achieve a net promoter score of over 70 from client event organisers' feedback over a twelve month period, and The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre achieved 79.9.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…â€œThis result reflects our ongoing commitment to deliver excellent service and facilities to our clients. It is no easy task to achieve this high score, and we thank our clients for providing this positive result for usÃƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‚ says Stuart Websdale, General Manager of The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre.
The MÃƒÆ’Ã‚¸ller Centre has recently finished a £100k refurbishment programme of the Study Centre including more networking tables and chairs, enhanced IT facilities, repainting of the Centre's walls, new wash basins and taps in the public toilets, and a new bar and servery area to offer clients greater flexibility with the space available and even quicker service.
