Reflections on our 20 Year Celebration
2017 is flying by and as many of our clients will know, it’s been a rather special year for Box-it Central as we commemorate our 20th anniversary. (We hope you’ve taken advantage of our special 20% discount promotions to mark the occasion.) But, of course, every special birthday deserves a celebration, and we were delighted to host a small event for some of our long-standing clients, colleagues and business partners last month, at our Squab Hall premises.
Following a morning seminar on the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) with our Box-it colleagues, who had travelled from regional offices nationwide to our Central premises, we moved onto our afternoon ‘client’ event and 20 year celebration.
The event included a guest presentation on compliance with the GDPR from Paula Tighe, Director of Information Governance of Wright Hassall, which was very helpful and informative to all who attended. The GDPR comes into effect on 25th May 2018, and it’s certainly serious legislation that can’t be ignored by any business, however large or small.
We rounded the afternoon off with a very tasty barbecue (which had to be served indoors due to the good old British weather!) and a champagne toast to our 20th anniversary. There was also a surprise in store for our directors, Les and Emlyn Evans. They were rather taken aback to be presented with a framed caricature style print depicting a light-hearted view of ‘life at Box-it Central’. It’s certainly provoked a few smiles.
Thank you to all those who joined us, and a special thank you to Wright Hassall. Here’s to the next 20 years and beyond. And by the way, 2017 hasn’t quite finished – we have a few more activities in the pipeline to keep the ‘20 theme’ alive.
