Whilst we pride ourselves on being a European company, it is also a year to be British. It seems only moments ago London and other cities within the UK were ablaze with fire, looting and riots. Things appeared to be disjointed and out of control. Whilst a lot of the underlying issues have not disappeared, the recent Queen’s Jubilee was a chance for the country to pull together and enjoy the company of neighbours, friends and new acquaintances at events and parties up and down the country. With Wimbledon and the Olympics just around the corner we are able to revel in a bit of patriotism, always hopeful of a sporting title or some medals (hopefully the gold type). The quote above from Winston Churchill is particularly meaningful when looking at our sportsmen and women and the effort they’ve put in over the years to train for what may be the pinnacle of their careers. It is also a worthwhile mantra for us all, always to strive for improvement in all we do.
