The year in numbers
Blimey this is the fourth time I get to write one of these and its zipped by. Four years ago 3 of us kicked off in a 600sq/ft office on Regent Street. Fast forward 4 years on and we are close to outgrowing our current 4500 sq/ft soho offices and kicking off the search for a bigger home to help us grow further. Fuelling this growth in 2011 has been a host of really talented new arrivals joining an already so capable team and a continuing set of progressive clients wanting to do it a little differently.
We finished our year with walks in the heartlands of Scotland warmed by knitwear surrounded by snow (imagine a less aesthetic Marks’s & Spencer ad).
I post this from the seriously snowy french alps, where 50 cm fell last night and the slopes are calling. My Mac is reminding me that I should complete the appointment set by me a whole year ago – it feels like I set it last week.
As usual this ‘year in numbers’ finds me rushing around trying to get some new statistics with which to summarise our year. Numerically 2011 saw;
1 patient centric strategic approach

1 new company started
38 fantastic people
562 hours of team training
1 Scottish adventure

1 heartfelt thank you to everyone we have worked with in 2011
1 Happy New Year to you all.
