Paul’s top 5 highlights of 2019, and thoughts for what next year has in store....
With the end of the year fast approaching, it’s a good time to look back at some of the highlights from the year. So, I caught up with Paul Beet, Managing Director to get his top 5, as well as his thoughts on what next year might bring…….
- Being shortlisted in the OSPA Awards – a great achievement to be amongst the top 5 security installers of the year for 2019.
- Continuing and expanding our support of charitable and fundraising initiatives – A new one for this year was our support of disadvantaged children in Bristol through our sponsorship of Unique Voice and their holiday programme. Going along and meeting the children and seeing the great work was truly inspirational.
- Supporting and meeting a ‘World Champion’ in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Rio Patterson. A teenager from Yate near Bristol who we sponsor came into the office to meet the team with his gold medal. A truly inspirational young man! This is part of our broader programme of sponsorship, as we support a variety of sports teams and individuals.
- Going green for the month of October and supporting our sustainable promise and implementing new ways of working to be kinder to the planet. Something that we will continue to do, and something which we all need to take responsibility for.
- Providing underwater cameras for tracking manta rays in the Maldives…. An amazing project to work on, and something that you don’t often have the chance to get involved with.
So, what’s in store for 2020….
‘I’m looking forward to what next year will bring. For us here at Astra it’s about continuing to deliver to a high standard for all our existing customers and to look for new opportunities within the marketplace. It’s also about our staff, focussing on their training and development and furthering in-house skills. And, it’s about continuing our work with communities and charities, which is such an important part of what we do, and which fits in with Astra’s ethos.
