It’s been a crazy post summer here at Xoomworks and here are a few (un)edited highlights
Temple of Xoom:
This month saw the launch of our Intranet – which we love. Beautifully crafted by Ben Parker & Jamie Holmes the biggest dilemma we had was christening it. A poll was created on Yammer and after an early lead by ‘XoomLocker’ and then a burst by ‘Xooma Nostra’ it was ‘Temple of Xoom’ by a long stretch.
Xoomworks Procurement Dinner Launch:
Xoomworks is hosting a round table event for leaders in Procurement in London on Thursday, 11 October. The evening will include drinks, excellent food and stunning views of the City of London, whilst meeting and networking with our panel of guests and other procurement professionals and leaders in a relaxed and informal environment. Our panel of guests all have experience in running significant procurement transformation programmes. They have real insights into some of the common challenges faced when trying to promote procurement to a strategic function within the organisation.
Please contact Ian Dagg, Xoomworks Head of Procurement, at Ian.Dagg@xoomworks.com for more information on attending this event. We would love to see you there!
Supporting Shoebox Charity in Cluj-Napoca:
Once again the team in Cluj got together to support the brilliant Shoebox Project.
Below you can see the team with boxes full to the brim of school materials for the 10 children in a care center we were supporting in Cluj – Well done to everyone for this great initiative. More to follow this Xmas if you would like to Support us.
Xoomworks Adieu- Quynh Anh
We leave you with a note of sadness turned into happiness. Sadness that our dear friend Quynh Anh is moving on after spending a few years squaring up our accounting systems. As Quynh Anh has been such a favourite of ours we had to come up trumps with a leaving gift. Below is a picture of Quynh-Anh and her gleaming new Brompton bike so she can commute to her new role in style.
Anthong Baring (Finace Director): “Sadly we say good bye to Quynh Anh this week – I will miss her steadfast support and cheerful directness and her delightful husband, Jean Jacques. She is off to a new job where she can work in her native French in the middle of the English countryside so we have helped her to buy this Brompton to ride to work along the lanes of Kent. Au revoir and Bonne chance. “
