We're all about being restless, and nobody brings that to life more than the legendary Sir John Timpson, head of the TIMPSON GROUP PLC empire. So we were thrilled to welcome him as the first host of #VeryTalks, our new speaker programme for The Very Group colleagues. Sir John shared his insights on more than 40 years in business, empowering colleagues to give outstanding service, his vision for Timpson and the company's social purpose as well as personal experiences including fostering. There's so much we can all learn from him! Watch this space for more on our incredible line up of guest speakers and internal experts as #VeryTalks continues, covering everything from retail to politics and mental health. #lifeattheverygroup
On Friday night, Littlewoods Ireland in conjunction with their digital marketing agency Wolfgang Digital took home the award for best use of social media at the Digital Marketing Awards!
