London Tech Week and more…
It’s been such an interesting few weeks. I am sure when you look back on your version of the last few weeks you may also experience that fission of excitement and awe?
Last week I was honoured to have been asked to speak on a panel on Day 1 at London Tech Week. Rishi Sunak, the UK Prime Minister, had been on stage that morning, and I like to think he was my warm up act! The venue was in the very heart of Westminster, the seat of the UK government and Tech leaders and companies were there in abundance.
The 35 minutes on stage went in a flash, but the subject (Building a Thriving Culture Whilst Scaling) was rich and easy to speak on, and it gave me plenty of time to showcase our work in my answers.
Then, the very next morning, I was invited on to Dave Savage’s world famous Tech Talks podcast to talk about what was coming up at London Tech Week and much more. That was a real buzz and thank you for the invitation Dave.
That night we had a London Tech Week event for some 45 clients on the rooftop of our London headquarters. It was a beautiful summer evening and the music, view and conversations all made for a rich and fun evening.
Over the top of all these wonderful moments has been Pride month which we celebrate as a business, and I know lots has been happening around Nash Squared. Many thanks to the Employee Resource Groups and Melanie Hayes and her team for all they do to build our culture into a place we can all be ourselves and belong.
I went to the London office Pride lunch yesterday, as well as great food and cakes, (who doesn’t like a gorgeous cupcake?!), there were heart touching conversations and joy in sharing this time together.
Finally, for now, today marks the end of the Nash Squared World Games. What a lot of fun and energy has been generated from this our third time in running it. I can’t wait to see who all the winners are. I know I feel fitter and happier because of the time taken, even if just a little, each day to get some air and build some mileage up.
Until next time, keep safe and well.
