Well I’m sure many of us have heard about Apple’s current valuation of $1 trillion. I happened to see it on my iPhone as I was scrolling through the news while accompanied by the pod cast that I’d downloaded from iTunes that very morning. I’d love to say that I’m writing this on my iMac, while checking the time on my I-watch but that would be fibbing…
I wonder if Steve Jobs and chums ever imagined their growth would get them to where they are today – when Ian and I first started HCS Safety 18 years ago it was with fairly modest ambitions. We will not be valued at $1 trillion any time soon, but we do look with some pride (and a bit of exhaustion sometimes) over how far we have come.
Earlier this year we held our 8th Annual Members Forum at the Concorde Club. It was a joy to see so many of the South’s companies attending and a true pleasure to present some well-deserved safety awards for members who had scored most highly in their annual audits. The record turnout did cause a little bit of a car park squeeze, so this coming year, on 14th March 2019, we will be using a rather larger venue.
We’re proud to announce that the 9th HCS Safety Annual Members Forum will be held in the ballroom of the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl. At this event we will be taking the stage once more to take our members through updates, insights and essential knowledge they need to be up to date on safety matters. There will be awards for the highest achievers in this challenging area of business management and we will of course be taxing our new venue’s catering department too.
The event is for companies who are part of our Membership Service – currently we have 380 Membership Service clients and we’re looking forward to seeing as many of them as possible at this prestigious new venue.
