I’d just like to thank all who came to the Timico conference at Stapleford Park in Leicestershire on Wednesday. This is an annual event that we hold to get closer to our customers and to brief them on up and coming technologies and products.
We crammed 120 or so guests into the Grand Hall at the hotel and had a mix of both internal and external speakers. I would particularly like to thank Dennis Turner, Chief Economist at HSBC bank, Nigel Scott, Director of Customer Engagement at BT and David Hiscock, Director of Product Management of the Nortel Carrier business for their valuable contribution and insights on the day.
Dennis Turner in particular made a bold prediction that he recession would end and lo and behold I woke up this morning to the BBC news telling me it had done so! What foresight! I’m thinking I might even change banks to HSBC – provided they can agree to my suitably large overdraft requirements 🙂
Footnote: Friday’s news regarding the recession is somewhat more sombre – in fact the economy shrank by 0.4% over the last quarter. Perhaps I’ll stick with my existing bank!
