Russell Bedford members join to celebrate taking you further day

January 2022

On Friday, 3 December 2021, Russell Bedford members from around the globe joined in celebration of the network, its people and the many achievements of the collective group on taking you further day.

Now in its third year of inception, taking you further day is an initiative created to help Russell Bedford members to actively engage with the Russell Bedford brand, while bringing member firms together to celebrate the network’s essential values.

Exploring the values that make up Russell Bedford’s DNA, the elements that make it the thriving network it is today, members engaged in activities based on at least one of the network’s core values, including:


Employees of our member firms shared interesting facts about themselves which were then populated on Russell Bedford’s very own online world map, further demonstrating the breadth of network coverage across the globe.

Some members took part in online ‘speed dating’, where they were paired with members from another part of the world to learn about them, their interests, their firm and their city/country.

Members also joined a fun Virtual Party for some enhanced connectivity with colleagues around the world, while sharing updates from their firms on their taking you further day activities and celebrations.


Several member firms organised team building exercises, encouraging their teams to invest in their health and wellbeing by setting team goals, and integrating exercise and other activities into their teams to build stronger relationships that support more successful collaboration.


Other firms chose to give back to their communities by participating in charity fundraisers and volunteering their time. The result being that many vulnerable people in their communities benefited from their efforts and their kindness.


Some firms used taking you further day to further establish the key to all Russell Bedford member firms – EXCELLENCE – holding educational sessions for their employees to learn how they can contribute to sustainable growth by unlocking the tenets of customer loyalty and enhancing customer experience.

Speaking about the taking you further day, CEO, Stephen Hamlet said: “As we continued through another year of difficulty and uncertainty, our firms at Russell Bedford relentlessly dedicated their time and energy to assisting businesses around the world. There is no better example of this vivacious energy than can be seen on taking you further day, which brings together our people; virtually, spiritually and, wherever possible, physically. The ‘virtual party’ held by our Central Office demonstrated the passion and vibrancy of our people, showcasing a number of events that had occurred at various times during the day.”

He concluded: “We trust we shall all come out of this pandemic even stronger and better than before; and, as the world starts to open up once again, we look forward to seeing our people meet physically and celebrate in-person, this fabulous network; not only on this special taking you further day, but EVERY DAY!”
