Weekly reflection 24th February 2017

This week has been mainly office based which was a nice change after last week. We celebrated a couple of milestones with a client – something we think is very important to see how work is progressing & acknowledging the hard work by everyone involved.

We held a strategy session with a client which blew us away with the ambition now for their business! Hopefully we’ll be able to share more details with you early next quarter.

A couple of our new products are now reaching the point of coming to market – we’ll be telling you more about those next month.

And we’ve been planning for world book day – capturing the favourite books of some of our favourite people – watch out next week for the results of that!

Otherwise client meetings & some lovely networking filled the rest of the time. And this weeks pictures are of some cars very special to me – ask if you want to know why!
