Avanti Communications (Avanti), the leading provider of satellite technology across EMEA, has signed a unique broadcasting partnership with sports platform The Athlete Media Group (AMG) to entertain their employees and families while they work from home during the global lockdown.
The weekly mini-series will be hosted by Avanti’s CEO, Kyle Whitehill, over the next three months. Each episode of ‘At Home With…’ will feature Kyle interviewing leading UK sports and entertainment stars, in additional to hosting a live Q&A. Employees from nine different countries will be dialling into watch.
Using video conferencing technology, each week the guest star will share their own inspiring story and offer insight about how they are maintaining their sporting discipline while remaining at home.
Athletes and entertainment guests include:
• Isaac Chamberlain - professional boxer
• Drew Povey - leadership coach & education champion
• Vicky Wright - Scottish curling champion and NHS nurse
• Sally Orange - former soldier and ultra-marathon runner
All participants have been chosen based on their career path and the challenges they have endured and overcome to be successful. Other sports stars and entertainment industry figures are set to join the employee wellbeing initiative over the coming weeks.
Avanti Group HR Director, Debbie Mavis, comments, “The current lockdown situation and the speed at which we have had to adapt to home working has created an opportunity for us to bring our people together in different and original ways. With sports people some of the most challenged in operating business as usual, who better to inspire and engage with our teams on creative thinking and problem-solving at this time.
“The morale and wellbeing of our employees is critical. Launching a mini-series with inspirational individuals is a unique and refreshing way to connect with each other and boost engagement, all while being at home” said Avanti CEO Kyle Whitehill. “Partnering with Athlete Media Group to bring our people stories from inspirational talent is an ideal way to do this.”
