In February, we took part in Cancer Research UK’s,100 skips a day challenge. This has been a great opportunity to join together and raise money for one of our chosen charities.
Across the month, we took many different approaches to the skipping challenge. Some people, decided to challenge themselves to different outfits for skipping as a way to raise donations, and some team members decided to skip collectively in the office to make sure they hit their target! There were lots of variations to how the skipping challenged looked, but the main thing is we completed it and we collectively did 39,200 skips across all of February.
Whilst we each did our 100 skips a day individually, we raised money as a team. The total amount we raised for Cancer Research was £615, which was a brilliant team effort across the month.

In December 2022, we were fortunate enough to be the headline sponsor for Experimentation Elite. This was a really great event, providing us the opportunity to network with like-minded people who share a passion for CRO and experimentation.
We also got to listen and enjoy talks from some of the best in the business, including our very own Sandeep Shah! It was a really great experience and a great way to share knowledge and build on what we already know. When working in the CRO and experimentation industry, you can become too focused on your own ideas and the tests you are running. Attending an event such as this exposes you to different viewpoints and forces you to think about things in a different way. This is one of the most useful things we can do as it allows us to continually provide better results for our clients.
We are looking forward to attending more events in 2023 and continue building our network, expanding our partnerships, and taking on new clients!
Every year from the 1st – 7th December is Crohn’s and Colitis awareness week. This is a charity that is particularly close to our hearts, as a colleague of ours suffers from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). IBD is referred to as an invisible disability, as often there are not any noticeable symptoms. Therefore, our focus was on how we as employers can better understand the condition and support members of our team going through this (or something similar), by making our workplace more inclusive for all.
We focused on the key facts for employers to know, such as the different types of IBD, the symptoms of these and how someone may be affected, how you can help your employees, managing time off work and ensuring a safe and open environment is created.
We signed up the Crohn’s and Colitis pledge to ensure we are being as supportive as possible and are creating an environment where employees feel comfortable sharing personal experiences.
To celebrate the start of the World Cup, we had a team social where everyone brought along a dish from the country which they drew in the office sweepstake. This gave us a great excuse to get the team together and also a brilliant opportunity to celebrate different cultures and learn more about traditional dishes from around the world.
We also asked for a donation from each participant and raised £202 for Cancer Research UK, which is one of our 3 chosen charities for this year.
The winning dish (as voted for by other participants) was the Glamorgan Sausage from Wales, with the Meatloaf, Belgian Waffles and Knafeh also being a hit!

In November 2022, we sponsored the Experimentation Elite Meetup, hosted by Journey Further. The event provided some brilliant networking opportunities as well as a panel of experimentation experts (including our Product Director, Sandeep Shah). They covered topics from how A/B testing development is different to other types of development, how to integrate experimentation into product teams and why not all developers are the same.
It was a great opportunity to get to together in person with the experimentation community and hear from different perspectives throughout the evening.

The B’Ashes is hosted annually by the Sussex Cricket Foundation and it invites 16 local businesses to compete in softball cricket matches. These are run by Sussex Cricket Foundation coaches, so it’s a great opportunity for all!
The event raises money to put towards Foundation initiatives, which are aimed to help change lives through the power of cricket. From this event, a brilliant total of £1,200 was raised which will be put towards supporting a project with The Royal Alexander Children’s Hospital.
We had a brilliant time volunteering at Sussex Cricket Foundation’s DIScoverABILITY Day in June 2022. DIScoverABILITY Day is Sussex Cricket’s annual disability cricket showcase. We were so pleased to be involved in such a special day, as this event gives hundreds of people involved with Sussex Cricket’s Disability Cricket programme the opportunity to play on the pitch at the 1st Central County Ground.
It was an honour and a very proud moment for us to sponsor the event, bringing fun and joy to hundreds of local school kids who had the opportunity to try different sports. The event is open to schools, colleges and community disability organisations from across Sussex to come along to the day and enjoy a series of batting, throwing, catching and bowling challenges on the outfield.

With head offices in both London and New York, they can cater for the needs of travellers on both sides of the Atlantic.
