Sports day challenge
We have always prided ourselves on the strong relationships we build with our clients, typically demonstrated with a renewed support contract. But when invited to enter a team into a client’s School Sports Fun Day event, we know we must be doing something right, particularly when the client is a law firm and not a school.
Long-standing client, Roythornes Solicitors, believes strongly in a team ethos and regularly gets all its people together for fun outside the office.
Recognising the support we provide for the firm across its four locations across the East of England, remotely through our helpdesk and on-site thanks to our mobile engineers, Quiss are seen as an essential part of Roythornes team and a natural choice to enjoy a great day with the users we help.
Our team; Ian, Jade, Michelle, Alex, Claire and Paul, were chosen more for their daily contact with Roythornes than their sporting prowess, but still managed third….from last!
The Springfields Event & Conference centre in Spalding, on a beautiful sunny Friday witnessed the triumph and tragedy of competitive sports, including: welly wanging, foam javelin, sack race, egg & spoon and lobbing bean bags into a bucket – just the sort of events you remember from your time at school.
There the similarity ended, with a barbecue, beer and live music providing a much-needed adult-orientated end to the day. Networking in this way, putting faces to voices on a helpline, is a great way to get to know a client and their users, but hopefully next time it will be something less strenuous!
It was a great day and we are confident we have strengthened even further our relationship with a client who takes the law very seriously, but knows when and how to have fun. A big thank you to Roythornes for their hospitality and a big thank you to the Quiss team, who knew better than to win.
