Barns Bulletin #17

Welcome to our monthly roundup of all things Freestyle: highlights of people, whereabouts and work happening at our Warwickshire HQ, the Barns.

February has been a super busy month here at the Barns! We've been out and about at various events, attended exciting training courses and even welcomed a brand new Freestyler!

Sheepies 🐑

We have another Sheepies winner 🏆! This month one of our rising stars in the Client Services team, Elliott, took the trophy 🤩With his dedication, hard work and commitment to creating an enjoyable client experience, we only saw it fitting that Elliott got the recognition he deserves. Well done Elliott!

Luci Perry

Finance Manager

This month, we welcomed our newest recruit to the Barns, Luci! Luci joins us as our much anticipated numbers wizard (aka Finance Manager) 💷 . Not only is she an expert when it comes to numbers, Luci is also skilled on the slopes, being able to both ski and snowboard! 🎿Luckily she’s joining a team of fitness fanatics, so she’ll fit right in! We’re so excited to welcome you into the Freestyle fam Luci! 🤩

Out and about 🚀

Episerver Partner's Day

Also in Feb, our Client Services team attended Episerver’s Partners Day, which focussed on the theme of maximising potential and featured a jam-packed schedule of speakers. The team had front row seats to hear all about Episerver’s exciting plans for this year, including the recent acquisition of Idio – a content personalisation and analytics platform. They couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get a photo with special guest speaker, former British Special Forces Soldier and Guinness World Record Holder, Dean Stott.

Tech for Good 😇💻

With our Client Services Director Kay delivering a joint talk with Practical Action's Oliver Arnold-Richards at the Tech for Good event in Birmingham, a few of our Freestylers were able to try out some of the 'good tech' whilst they were there! This included Round Midnight's (Birmingham's leading Creative Arts organisation) VR experience, that places the viewer in an immersive story to safely experience the context and emotions of gang culture.

Read more about the learnings of the day via Becki's article, over on LinkedIn!

Workshoppin’ 💭

Its no secret that we offer killer workshops, delivering expert lead sessions to help our clients improve, create and excel! So, how best to improve on our offering than to attend a few ourselves! A few Freestylers headed down to London to catch a couple workshops that will allow us to expand our knowledge, and help us offer even better experiences for our lovely clients!
