It’s been another crazy and manic year for us so far here in Elixel Towers, with more than enough going on to keep us all busy and entertained. But apart from working on a whole bunch of exciting client projects over the months so far, here’s the lowdown on what else has been giving us reasons to be cheerful.
Becky’s new role
Anyone familiar with business in and around Plymouth can’t have failed to notice the impact being made by the Women In STEM Plymouth (WISP) group in the City. But if you’re not quite sure what that involves, WISP is a network created with the sole purpose of increasing gender equality within science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) and their related professions and jobs.
By publicising the achievements of women in STEM roles across Plymouth, and increasing female participation in STEM subjects through engagement with local schools, colleges, and events, WISP aims to increase gender equality in STEM.
It’s a worthy network, and we’re pleased to congratulate our Finance Director, Becky, on her new role on the WISP board as she joins them as Tech Facilitator. In her role, Becky is the driving force behind WISP’s efforts to promote the T in STEM - technology. Great work, Becky! Find out more on the WISP website.
(And just to clarify, Becky’s role on the WISP board is voluntary, so fortunately for us, she’s not leaving Elixel - we couldn’t cope without her!)
Oh, one more thing...
We didn’t make a big song and dance about it, preferring to keep it somewhat under the radar, but you might have noticed we’ve launched our new refreshed and redesigned Elixel website. It’s been a long time coming, but we finally pushed it live in the first week of June with some low-key self promotion on Twitter and Instagram.
With a bold colour palette, we’ve focused on simplicity and ease of use to help site visitors find their way around quickly. But beyond that, we’ve expanded our project portfolio so you can view the latest projects we’ve been working on, and we’ve upped our blog game too, so we’re going to be posting a lot more relevant content over the coming months. We’ve even added a handy ‘See places to park’ on our Contact page to make parking easier when you visit us!
We’re pretty happy with it and we hope you like it too - let us know what you think.
And make sure you keep checking back over the coming months too. We're working on an exciting project that involves one of our favourite childhood characters from the world's longest running children's TV show, Sooty! You can visit Sooty's new website now at www.thesootyshow.co.uk to learn all about his history as he turns 70, find upcoming shows nearby and much much more.
In the meantime, if you’re looking to jump into the world of apps and you have a great idea you want to bring to life, get in touch with us today. Let us know what you’re thinking and we’ll see how we can help you.
