A young family, working towards MCIOB and training for triathlons takes up much of Alex’s ‘other’ time.
Hard working Office Managers are the often unsung heroes of an efficient and successful business. All that stuff that ‘just gets done’ is mostly completed by Emma, quietly and efficiently second guessing who needs what, when and in which priority. Guardian of our ‘copier room’ and the dark art of ‘Dropbox’ and other ‘Cloud’ based voodoo that moves data hungry stuff from us to you and you to the right persons desk.
Emma is the company ‘petrol head’ with a love of fast cars and a passion for did you know….riddles and trivia!
