D2 Rail attends RailStaff Awards

D2 Rail attends RailStaff Awards

D2 Rail were delighted to be invited along to the RailStaff Awards 2017, not only was it a superb evening celebrating the best in the industry, but we were also there to cheer on and support our colleagues Simon Blair and Alesha Hancock for the award of “Rail Person of the Year” – we are so honoured to be working alongside them both.  Congratulations to them on their nominations and to all the other award winners and nominations on the night too.

The event at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, took us all on a journey back to the 1980’s, the time of Rubik cubes, Ghetto Blasters and big shoulder pads. It was a definitely a party to remember and even included a photobooth sponsored by D2 Rail where people could don neon sweatbands and electric guitars to truly get in the 80s spirit!

On arrival, we were invited into a drinks reception, where we had the chance to catch up with friends and colleagues, before moving to our table later in the evening, which allowed us to enjoy a delicious 4-course meal.

Thank you to RailStaff for throwing a fantastic party, helping us all to celebrate a brilliant year for D2 Rail with wonderful food, drinks, music, dancing, floorshows, and a theme that we all embraced…to the max!

David Diesbergen, Managing Director of D2 Rail added: “We are incredibly proud of Alesha and Simon for doing so well in this year’s awards. The team works hard to make sure every project we’re involved in is a success, and it has been great to see our people recognised for their contributions.”

The RailStaff Awards is a ceremony to show appreciation for the people who deliver the railway – from drivers to programme managers and engineers to station staff. Often these are stories of lives saved, careers turned around and adversity conquered.
