Here’s the latest news from the UK office…
- Andy Buckland, Tickets.com’s Service Delivery Director, was part of an impressive world record attempt last month, as he joined a team crossing the English Channel in hot air balloons. The cohort of 85 balloons flew from Dover to Calais early on the morning of Friday 7th April, in an attempt to beat the current world record for the largest group of air balloons to cross the Channel, which stands at 49. Less than three hours later, all 85 hot air balloons landed safely in Northern France, unofficially setting a new world record – and getting a fantastic view of the busiest shipping lane in the world! Andy will be taking to the skies again later this year as part of the GBR-1 team competing in the annual Gordon Bennett Gas Balloon event in Switzerland.
- In March the UK office jumped at the chance to showcase their best baking skills with a charity bake sale in aid of Comic Relief. A number of the team baked cakes, biscuits and treats to sell to colleagues – they even visited neighbouring offices where staff were only too happy to put their hand in their pocket and donate to the very worthy cause. The team raised £112.00 in total.
- Simon Hicken joined the Tickets.com UK team this month and will be working in our Milton Keynes office as Client Service and Support Representative reporting to Gerard Pryce. Simon brings several years of customer service and support experience with him to assist in supporting our ProVenueDatabox™ and ProVenue® clients throughout the EMEA region.
