20th Anniversary Celebration

Last week we snuck out of work a bit early and went up to our friends at HERTFORD RFC LIMITED to have a bit of a celebration. The small matter of a 20th Anniversary needed attending to and we set about it with some enthusiasm. We feasted on an endless supply of food and drink served up by the club's catering team in its smart new executive suite including top-notch A/V and WiFi (ITbuilder managed ;)

If you are looking for a meeting or function venue in the local area of Hertford or Ware, we can highly recommend it. It is bright, spacious and the catering and hospitality if first class. Get in touch with the club to make enquiries here:

Our own event was topped off with a lovely surprise from our great buddies at Goodstuff Communications, who sent us a delicious cake, which didn't stick around for long. Thank you, all!

It was also our first company meeting since before the pandemic and, therefore, a chance to reflect on this period as well as set out our goals for the next few years. Awards were presented to our outstanding performers with James Gray scooping the MVP award voted for by his peers. Very fitting as he himself celebrates 10 years with the business later this month.

We all enjoyed a very interesting presentation on the changing face of our market, plus the challenges and opportunities that cyber-security presents by Olu Odeniyi. He provided a very detailed and insightful talk  that left us with no doubt about the challenges we face protecting our customers from cyber-crime. Thanks again, Olu!

Once we wrapped up the event for the evening, a hardcore partied late into the night (hence posting this after weekend recovery) and, as if by fate, bumped into Sam Piper and Laura Piper, who met whilst working with us and married this summer! Congratulations guys.

Right, back to the graft and working towards an even bigger silver jubilee!
