Tuesday and Friday saw Marie and I at the 02 Call Centre in Preston Brook, Runcorn. It's a massive modern building with close to 2000 staff working there. Within the call centre they have an area called "The Street". From time to time vendors, like ourselves, are invited to promote & sell their goods which seems to go down very well. Friday was the launch of the new i phone which meant the operators were very busy taking calls. They welcomed our delicious ice cream during their breaks and after lunch.
The ice cream was very popular having been there on Tuesday, we had some of the same people back for more on Friday. They loved the fact that we had different flavours but found they were spoiled for choice. Just before we left we were approached by Anne - one of the 02 top communications managers. She informed us that she had around 20 people in, all busy judging "The Media Awards" to be held in the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral in November. She said they had been working so hard since early in the morning she thought an Ice cream would go down well. No doubt a welcome break from their difficult task - espcially on a Friday afternoon. From their reactions it was a well appreciated gesture.
John, looking the part - the second shot, John went all 'arty' in photoshop!
We had a great time at 02 and hope to go back again soon.
