Annual Company Conference & Charity Event

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

On the 7th December Showcase held their Annual company conference at the Mondrian Hotel in Southwark London.

Now with 58 employees the senior management team shared the years successes & leanings, as well as the businesses objectives for 2019.

With not a dull slide in sight, it was a fun, and interactive day for all.

In the afternoon in true Showcase fashion everyone took part in a heartfelt charity team build.

In teams our creative bunch had to design and make a festive sack, filling it with age & gender specific Christmas gifts following a list of criteria & challenges along the way!

Each team was whisked off to the oldest and largest toy shop in the world ‘Hamleys’ where they returned with 100’s of wonderful gifts guaranteed to make any child smile.

All the beautiful sacks were filled with presents, each for an under privileged child who otherwise wouldn’t receive a gift this Christmas.

Showcase worked closely with its local charities, and The Salvation Army in Chelmsford to help make Christmas wishes come true.

Showcase Directors Emma & Nigel Boreham were incredibly proud to see their team work so hard to achieve this, another great day.

Fast Track 100 looks at private companies and ranks those with the fastest growing sales.

It was Showcase’s growth from 2012 to 2014 that first caught the eye of the Fast Track 100 research team. From 2012 to the end of 2014’s financial year the business grew by a phenomenal 319% from £4.6 million pound turnover to £14.7m. Turnover at the end of 2015 came in at £24.2m a growth of 64% on the previous year.

Nigel Boreham, Managing Director of Showcase comments “Last year it came as something of a shock to receive the call from the Fast Track team to tell us that we were being considered for a place in the top 100, and I have to say I will never get tired of receiving that sort of telephone call. This year we are equally excited to have been ranked again and to have jumped up so significantly. This year has been a big year for Showcase we have completed gutted and fitted out a new Head Office for ourselves in Essex, moved to larger office premises in London and recruited no less than 10 new personnel in every role from Accounts and Admin to Project Management and CAD Design. We look forward to continued success and growth in 2017.”
