Why did you want to sponsor TEDx St Albans?
Debenhams Ottaway is excited to be the lead sponsor for the inaugural TEDx event in St Albans and is looking forward to supporting a motivational community event that explores connection.
We are a law firm based in the heart of St Albans helping individuals, families and businesses in Hertfordshire, London and across the UK. When it comes to big life decisions – from buying a house or writing a Will to expanding or selling your business –the team at Debenhams Ottaway is dedicated to making it as simple and straightforward as possible.
As a thriving local business, our involvement in the local community is deeply embedded in our culture. We focus on local charities where we can make a difference and our lawyers regularly work to give free legal advice to members of the public to help them in their lives.
Susan Glenholme, managing partner of Debenhams Ottaway, has recently been appointed as a Director on the Board of the St Albans District Chamber of Commerce and is passionate about serving the local community. She has been inspired by the famous Ted talk from Simon Sinek “How great leaders inspire action” where Simon states that “people don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. If you talk about what you believe, you will attract those who believe what you believe”.
She comments “Sponsoring TEDx St Albans is a wonderful opportunity for Debenhams Ottaway to collaborate with a partnership that aligns with our own culture and goals to spark conversation, connection and community. We always aim to be transparent and open in our communication and knowledge sharing, whilst promoting diversity, inclusivity, and integrity. I hope that Debenhams Ottaway’s sponsorship can help to bring a thought provoking and inspiring day to St Albans which brings different people together to entertain new thoughts, ideas and perspectives”.
