As 2023 wraps up, we're taking a moment to look back on a year full of unexpected challenges, team changes, and shifts in client dynamics. Yet, in the face of these hurdles, we rallied, worked tirelessly, and went the extra mile. Now, it's time to look back on all that we have achieved over the year as well as give a sneak peek of what's to come in 2024.
This year, we celebrated significant achievements as our MD and Founder, Angela Prentner-Smith, earned a spot among Scotland's top 10 Female Entrepreneurs To Watch. We had three inductees into the BIMA100 2023 for the categories of CEOs and Leaders, Bravest Client and Tech Innovation. In addition, we were shortlisted for the Marketing Society Star Awards for our Diversity, Equality and Inclusion initiative with Developing the Young Workforce, and also saw our learning platform Neve Learning shortlisted for Supplier of the Year.
Our work has taken us from Aberdeen to Dubai and everywhere in between. We hosted our first in-person MilkBar since before Covid, with the proceeds from all ticket donations going to the ADHD Foundation and were delighted to be invited to speak at events like Glasgow Tech Fest, ScotSoft, Neurodiversity in the Workplace conference and the ADHD Foundation's Neurodiversity: A New Paradigm event.
Like many organisations, we’ve seen the global impacts and challenges from world events. We’ve said goodbye to some old faces and hello to new team members as we continue expanding. A big part of what we do is support and develop talent. This year, we’ve taken on several interns and graduates, and were delighted to welcome Jennifer, Kezia, Linnea and James who have all now joined us full-time.
Looking forward to the start of 2024, we'll be holding another edition of our Milk Bar event in February. Keep an eye out for tickets; you won't want to miss this one.
You spoke, we listened and we’ve got a suite of new products and services ready from January that will allow us to better serve the ever-evolving needs of our customers.
And the most thrilling news of all – the commercial launch of Neve Learning with numerous exciting features. Stay tuned for what's to come.
We can't wait to share these exciting developments with you in the coming year. Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a fantastic New Year.
