A Strong Start To 2022

A warm welcome to 2022 and our first newsletter of the new year which we are pleased to report has started very strongly indeed.

Let’s hope this continues with January being a perfect start including the completion of a significant fund-raise for our client DrumFit, our strength in the Inclusivity and Diversity sector helping us secure our first Fem-Tech client and a very positive first pitch event of the year featuring high quality presentations from Hytro, Greenbay Supermarket and Red Dog Ads.

Very much looking forward to working with you all this year and our best wishes for every success.
