The best thing about my job is that I often get the opportunity to take out my staff and celebrate something special. Today was one of those opportunities, which I will come back to later in my blog.

I’m glad to see my plea for money for the bike ride had some impact yesterday, as we raised another £30! By the way I am being sarcastic!

Please dig deep and sponsor us for the BHF cycle ride in just over a week.

My landmark poser from yesterday was related to ‘The Rake’ and the opera ‘Rake’s progress’, which was composed by Igor Stravinsky, which was correctly guessed by Steve Packer

Today’s poser is simply related to this church that appears to be growing from a tree!

What is the church’s name? It’s near the Tower of London!

After a brief morning with meetings covering project management and some service issues with our Facilities team at our Tower Hill location, it was off to a special lunch for one of our staff, a regular blog reader, Linda Gradwell.

Linda reached a significant moment in her life a few weeks back and was actually the first person I recruited at SThree over 13 years ago, so it was only appropriate that myself and her line manager, Marc Christophides, celebrated this in style, by taking her out to a long lunch.

We had a great afternoon sampling the delights of London and I thank both for a great day.

There are now 71 days to the Olympics.

Yesterday’s blog event was related to Ilke Wyludda who won gold for Germany in the Discuss and hopes to compete in this years Paralympics in the Shot Putt. Amazing!

Today, a simple one. Name the event of a wonderful British athlete, Daley Thompson.

The highlight of the day has to be the lunch and the company that went with it.
