Team Virteffic Newsletter – June 2023

Can you believe it’s June already?! We’re fast approaching the halfway point of 2023. That time of year that makes you stop and gasp, “Wasn’t it Christmas just yesterday?”

As we prepare to say goodbye to May and welcome in June, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the mid-year. We are continuing to see interest in our services, and the onboarding team is keeping busy with these opportunities. Thank you to everyone for your continued hard work and support. 

The summer months are now ahead of us, and I hope that you will all enjoy some time off to enjoy the sunshine.

Many thanks

Guernsey Update

There are a lot of exciting things happening over in Guernsey as well. Tess had a successful trip over in May and will be going over to Guernsey at least every two months. The next trip will be 3-5 July, for a number of meetings including some candidates for roles in the expanding Guernsey team.

Tess will also attend a couple of events, including a Guernsey Chamber of Commerce (GCC) event on diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Virteffic has teamed up with the GCC for a great event later this year, more details to follow…

Meet the Team

Networking is important so that we can continue to build brand recognition and grow the business. It is a great way to meet new clients and to meet other businesses within our community. Virteffic has many memberships across Jersey and Guernsey, which gives us access to several events. These events can also help us to stay on top of the trends in the industry, and they can aid to develop and improve our skill set. 

Our team look forward to attend the following events over the next couple of months:

What’s coming up

We carefully monitor the capacity of the team to make sure we have sufficient cover to deliver instant support to our clients and to provide high-quality board minutes within the deadline agreed. There is a variety of internal tasks and projects that the team members assist with during periods when we have less client work.
