Quote of the Day:
“Do one thing everyday that scares you”
It is with great excitement that, after seven years at the helm of the good ship Snapdragon, I am delighted to announce that we have been acquired by the rather marvellous PLMR. In early October, we will be relocating to their offices in Westminster to become part of a larger, happy – and fabulously eccentric – family. Whilst this means that the Snapdragon darts league may have to be retired, it also means that we will have a wealth of additional skill and resource at our fingertips for our ever lovely clients including a solid Westminster lobbying base and in-house design and digital consultation capabilities.
For those of you who worry that I may also be shelving my acerbic wit and faultless intellectual analysis… never fear (the going rate for a political consultancy isn’t that good these days!) I will be remaining as MD at Snapdragon as well as taking a board position at PLMR, a move that will allow me to focus a lot more on clients and a little less on admin. So you will see much more of me, whether you like it or not! The rest of my amazing team will be continuing their sterling work across all three of our offices – because, after all, it is only the name that has changed.
Clearly, the lovely leadership at PLMR have no idea that, after seven years of being my own boss, I am potentially completely unemployable. However, after seven years of being my own boss I am delighted to now have some company at the top table and am thoroughly looking forward to seeing just how much we can do as part of a bigger team.
Normal Snapdragon service will continue uninterrupted, save for a few well-earned celebratory drinks in the office at which point the tea urn may once again be put to use as a vessel for some form of cocktail mix.
In the not too distant future we will look to have a suitably classy soiree of some description to celebrate our move, thank you lovely lot for being with us on our journey so far and say a cheers to at least the next seven years.
