#StayHome – How Team TLC have gone remote

It’s business as (un)usual for Team TLC. Like many other businesses, we packed up our laptops and made the move from the office to our living rooms last month.

For a team that’s used to collaborating face-to-face on a constant basis, working from home has been a tough but useful adjustment. As a result, we’ve been holding a daily Zoom call each morning to catch up and put a smile on everyone’s faces.

Since the move, we’ve been setting up our new workspaces and enjoying the extra time spent with our pampered pets. They’re proving to be a popular topic in the team WhatsApp and make great quality control managers as they keep a watchful eye over our work!

We’re here to help

While we settle into the new norm, we’ve been making some changes to our service offering to ensure we can continue to help our fellow SMEs with marketing support during this challenging time. As a result, we’ve switched to virtual Marketing Ideas Sessions with regular slots available to book for free over the coming weeks.

If you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of the team, our phone lines and emails remain open. Get in touch with us on 01962 600147 or info@tlc-business.co.uk.

From all of us, stay safe and keep well.

A lovely early Christmas gift for TLC from our client

,

Christmas came early for TLC today! One of our clients very kindly surprised us with this lovely hamper of chocolates and champagne.

Thank you to all our clients for a brilliant 2019 and we look forward to working with you in 2020!

A spectacular meeting view

We travelled to Salisbury for a client meeting yesterday and were particularly wowed by the view from their balcony!

Another happy client! TLC receive a delicious thank you gift

Last Friday, one of our clients very kindly surprised the TLC team during our monthly meeting with this delicious box of Krispy Kreme donuts – to say thank you for helping them secure their first sale off the back of one of our lead gen emails. The donuts were massively appreciated by the team and we’re very pleased to have another happy client!

 

 

Camkids celebrate their best year yet

TLC Business have been proud sponsors of The Cambodian Children’s Charity for 9 years now, so we’re really pleased to share their latest update about how the charity’s education program is going.

2019 has been an excellent year for the charity, with another cohort of final year students successfully graduating (despite the outside pressures on children in this region of Cambodia to leave school and get a job in the fields or factories as early as possible); as well as successfully installing electricity in their CCC school, which helps Cambodian children from poorer backgrounds have access to an education.

A few highlights from 2019 include:

  • The CCC School reaching 423 students, from kindergarten through to Grade 6
  • The CCC School achieving a 98% pass rate
  • The Cambodian Children’s Charity health clinic providing free healthcare services to more than 2000 children and 847 villagers
  • Eighteen volunteers visiting the CCC school to teach Maths and Literacy

TLC take on The Crystal Maze

TLC headed up to London last friday to the take on The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience challenge for our most recent team day out! As part of the 90 minute experience, the team were taken through four zones: Aztec, Industrial, Futuristic and Medieval. Each zone contained several games, testing our skill, physical & mental ability – as well as a mystery category! We had a fantastic time and overall the team managed to collect 7 crystals and almost 200 golden tickets in the dome.

Caroline designs some delicious biscuits

Smile! Our graphic designer, Caroline, has been at it again with her gorgeous biscuit designs – which made for a lovely surprise for the TLC team this morning.

 

TLC play golf!

Last Friday, some of the TLC team were invited to play golf at the well-renowned Ferndown Golf Course!⛳️

TLC climbed Mount Snowdon!

Last Friday, the TLC team visited Snowdonia National Park for a challenging climb up Mount Snowdon. The team had a very early start leaving from the office at 5am Friday morning and arrived at the starting point of the ascent for the PYG track at approximately 11am. Lots of sun cream and water was needed to keep us hydrated and protected from the very hot and sunny weather, which made the climb extra challenging at times. After approximately 3.5miles of ascent, the team made it to the summit at approximately 2pm where we took a break to enjoy some lunch and admire the views. We then set off for the descent at approximately 3pm via the Miners Track and made it back to our coach at 5pm to return back to the office! Here are some pictures from the day!

Client launch celebrations

 
  

Last week, the team were invited to Newbury for an event to celebrate the launch of WashCo. The company has been formed following the merger of three of the commercial laundry industry’s most successful names – Armstrong, HughesPro and our client, SLS. We’re looking forward to working with them as part of their exciting plans for the future!
