Imagine a company induction where your employees come face to face with your CEO and are taken on a personal tour of business locations and customers around the world.

Nestled in the home counties, you may come across Royal Holloway. No, not the London suburb, or the infamous prison. Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, to give its full title, is a world-class university just outside Egham in Surrey. Opened in 1886 by self-made medicines millionaire philanthropist Thomas Holloway, the college was originally established as a learning institution for women at the suggestion of Holloway’s wife, Jane. The main Founder’s Building is impressive from the outset with its flamboyant pillars, turrets and towers inspired by Château Chambourd in the Loire valley.

With less than four days to complete the project, there was no time for settling in.
