Welcome to our February updates which come at the end of the shortest month of the year, and I don’t know about you but that certainly felt like a short month to me!
We tend to associate February with romance as cupid fires arrows to and fro, on or around the 14th, depending on when the weekend falls of course (especially for those of us that are married with children). And it’s not only cupid’s arrows that have heated things up as the UK has sweltered in record breaking temperatures of up to 21 degrees. We’ve even seen moorland fires at Saddleworth Moor. It truly has been a crazy month. Whatever next – it would not surprise me were a breakaway political group to nickname themselves ‘the Tiggers’ … aww wouldn’t that be cute.
February has been an intriguing sporting month for the region. Nottingham Forest edged a tight 1-0 against local rivals Derby to secure bragging rights for many months. They then made the exciting announcement that one of the stands is to be rebuilt bringing the capacity for the ground up to a staggering 38,000. How amazing.
Not to be outdone, Leicester City parted company with their manager Claude Puel and persuaded Brendan Rogers to leave Celtic and relocate to the beautiful East Midlands. The ink had not even dried on the contract and Leicester secured their first win since New Year’s Day – maybe an omen for things to come? Alas on the rugby pitch the Tigers have had a challenging month – but with a home game against the Wasps this weekend, perhaps they can turn things around?
Business has been amazingly busy for us, with lots of exciting things happening not just in the East Midlands but also further afield. We will share some of our new customers’ stories in the coming months, plus an incredibly exciting case study which just being finalised for global publication with the global telecoms giant that is Avaya. Watch this space.
Finally, we are also in the final throws of preparing to send out the parcels for our Books 4 Schools campaign, as a part of this year’s World Book Day. But more about that later on.
Hey, and do you remember a few months ago we shared some thoughts on what might be coming along in the ‘foldable tech’ mobile handset sector? Well, it’s official, the major smartphone manufacturers have now confirmed product launches! More about that in our ‘Informer’ section too – sooo exciting!
