Celebrating the Platinum Jubilee – looking towards heritage, legacy and the importance of relationships
This year, Her Majesty The Queen has become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.
The upcoming jubilee weekend will be a time of great festivity and an opportunity for families and communities across the nation to come together and mark the occasion through formal events, and moments of personal reflection.
Throughout the country people will be taking part in street parties, beacon lighting ceremonies and more, with The Platinum Jubilee Pageant being held in London, at the heart of the activity.
K2 are a proud supporter of Her Majesty The Queen: The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Commemorative Album. This is the only official book published for the Platinum Jubilee Pageant and will be launched on 5 June 2022 as part of the UK’s unique four-day bank holiday weekend of jubilee celebrations of The Queen’s extraordinary 70-year reign.
Produced by publisher St James’s House and written by royal authors Robert Jobson and Katie Nicholl, with contributions by Tom Parker Bowles, this beautiful hardback publication will be officially launched on The Mall in central London during the pageant, with a second launch event taking place later that same day in the elegant art deco ballroom of Claridge’s hotel in Mayfair.
Providing a unique window into Her Majesty’s decades of service, the book charts the trials and triumphs of The Queen’s 70 years on the throne and explores how Her Majesty has provided a lifetime of leadership.
K2 CEO Nick Plummer comments:
“We are delighted to be supporting The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Commemorative Album. For K2, 2022 is a year when we are already thinking about heritage and legacy, so this partnership felt like a great fit.
This year marks our 20th birthday. We’re absolutely thrilled to be celebrating 2 decades of service excellence and continued strong client relationships.
Looking to our legacy, earlier this year we launched our new strategic plan, Kinetic, which signified an exciting step forwards, as we made Sustainability and People & Culture two areas of significant focus throughout the organisation.
We are expanding and accelerating our commitments and action on ESG and sustainability, and want to drive meaningful, industry-wide change in collaboration with our Global Accredited Partner Programme (GAPP) network.”
“Our people are our most valuable asset, and we are very proud of our unique culture. We also have a unique leadership structure, with a dedicated K2 Executive Leadership Team (ELT) who provide a crucial role in bridging the gap between operational teams and senior leadership, ensuring that team members at all levels of the business feel represented.
As Queen Elizabeth has done in her 70 years on the throne, we have experienced both trials and triumphs, since starting out back in 2002 but following the global turbulence of the past few years, as things slowly start to return to normal, I’m excited to see what the next decades will bring for K2.”
Her Majesty The Queen: The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Commemorative Album is just one of a number of exciting projects that K2 is supporting during the business’s 20th birthday year and beyond. As an organisation K2 is determined to create a lasting legacy of operational excellence and meaningful contribution to society.
However you’re planning on commemorating the Platinum Jubilee, we wish you a safe and enjoyable long weekend.
