We took great delight in celebrating our 10th year in business on the 19th June and we did it in style….at the House of Lords!
The celebrations were hosted by Lord Evans of Watford in the sumptuous Attlee Room overlooking the River Thames, with over 40 of our clients, suppliers and partners travelling from all over the country to join us at the party.
The guests mingled, shared stories and enjoyed refreshments before Managing Director, Stephen Jones reflected on the journey the company has made over the past decade.
Stephen commented, ‘Our objective when starting Forum was to be different to the existing Print Management market. We stated that we would always treat our clients and suppliers with honesty, integrity and offer all a level of service that would delight. But we also wanted to have fun and to make working with Forum an enjoyable experience. In our formative years this was a real challenge and without the support of our fantastic clients, suppliers and partners Forum wouldn’t have got off the ground, never mind grown into the successful business it is today. I would especially like to thank and express my gratitude to my great friend and the Chairman of Forum, Lord Evans, our CEO Caroline Minshell and my fellow directors Andy Parsonage and Julia Smith’.
Lord Evans has known Stephen for many years, in fact since he was at Rover Cars over 25 years ago, and he condensed that relationship into a very humorous and touching poem which he delivered to the guests. He then presented a copy of it to Stephen who said, ‘Thanks David, that’ll look great on my toilet wall’!
Here’s looking forward to the next 10 years!
