2014 has been a period of huge growth for PKB, with staff numbers and customer sites expanding rapidly, so it’s important that at times we take the chance to come together and reflect on developments. The end of November saw a team meeting in London with PKB colleagues coming from all over the world to meet in person.
We also decided to organise a similar event for our customers, this time in Manchester. It was great to see the mix of current colleagues such as the Perinatal Institute alongside new contacts looking to discover what PKB can do for them (and the healthcare challenges their organisations face). Mohammad gave a brief update on what is to come next year, including new graphics for the measurements pages and the Think Ahead initiative being launched in Irish Hospices, encouraging people to make decisions for their end of life care well in advance. The event was a great chance to get to know our customers outside of emails and meetings, as well as giving customers an opportunity to see how PKB is used elsewhere – encouraging cross-pollination of ideas. We hope to make these events a regular occurrence and look forward to welcoming you at the next one.
Thank you to everyone who came, and also to those who sent their apologies and wished us luck. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of our friends and customers; we look forward to working with you all in 2015!
