We are well into January, but the recent Christmas and the New Year period is always an exciting time at Savills.
None so much as our recent festivities, when we had a fire break out on our busiest trading day of the year, the Saturday before Christmas!
Three fire engines descended on Savills to extinguish the flames erupting from our faulty tumble drier, and eventually normal trading was resumed albeit in a smoky shop with a very interesting aroma!
At Savills we are not ones to let a trauma like a fire disrupt our day, that Saturday was also the day of our staff party and that night we descended on the O2 Academy in Sheffield for a great end to a very interesting day, with those of us who had brought clothes to change into, into the shop leaving a trail of smoky scent in our wake…..
The festive period now seems like a distant memory as we have a jam-packed itinerary of Academy sessions, seminars abroad and professional events during the first quarter of 2016 in addition to some exciting projects of our own that will soon be coming to fruition.
Watch this space and I will keep you regularly updated along the journey!
