For the 2nd year running, ReQuire Consultancy have supported the Emery Little Charity Golf day which again proved to be a roaring success, with more teams and sponsors than we initially hoped for following it’s debut event last year. Over the past six months I have been working closely with Derek Gibbens , David Clayton, Tim Deacon and Keith Hanson […]

Happy ‘national leave work at 4pm’ day has arrived!

“Happy Friday” might just be the one of the most obvious and perhaps irritating phrases to read in an email on the final day of the working week.

An evening with Sir Ranulph Fiennes

When I heard, that the main event at this year’s annual Salisbury Big Business Event was a talk from Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the World’s Greatest Living Explorer; I was pretty confident that I’d be one of the first in the queue to purchase my ticket! Not only is this man an icon of British History…and future, […]
