The CEJ office is a lovely place. But nice as the office is, and lovely as the staff are, we do like to get out and about and meet our clients, which is something we haven’t been able to do nearly as often as we would like in the past year or two. Happily, we put that to rights over the summer, when we piled into an ice cream van and headed over to Ellesmere Port for the day.
Giving away free ice cream was just a small part of the plan – the day also allowed us to get to know some clients. Some of whom we met for the first time.
In typical CEJ fashion, there were some stories to tell at the end of the trip – the security man who moved us out of the car park despite offers of a free ice cream, the white van man who slammed on his brakes to grab a 99'er and the dog-walking passer-by who was most put out to be told that rum ’n’ raisin wasn’t on offer – but the day was a roaring success. Thanks to all our existing clients who took the time to come and see us. Also welcome aboard to the new clients who have joined us since our visit.
Plans are already afoot to get out and about again in the next few months. We won’t be packing ice cream next time but you can guarantee we will be bringing something edible or drinkable but definitely free with us.
P.S. We don’t know when or more importantly where we’re going to visit next, so if you’re up for us coming to your workplace with some free stuff, let Ben know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
