Goodbye 2020

By Tom,

December 2020

Well, that was a rough ride, wasn’t it? It started so well. We welcomed Charlie into the team. We launched some of our best work, we started work with some dream clients. And then, BOOM. All hell broke loose. You know the rest of that story.

Since then it’s been a case of gripping on tight and straddling this wild ride, buckled into to our home working seats.

Moving. Adapting. Worrying. Laughing. Crying (well, almost). All the emotions.

But now we’re here, at the end of the year. A bit battered and bruised, but a good way through this disaster. Some glimmering sense of hope at the end of a dark tunnel.

The same 11 Toward team members who started the year, end it. Apart, but together. That’s something to be proud of. We can’t thank them enough for their unwavering support, almost constant positivity and an unbeatable ‘can do’ attitude. Paul, Matt, Charlie, Nathan, Beth, Dave, Megan, Kel and Gem — thank you.

We know we’ve been fortunate. Other businesses have faired much worse. Our group of amazing clients, have been joined by quite a few new ones. For that we thank all of them for trusting us to deliver and keeping their wheels moving, helping us get through the year.

Who knows what 2021 holds? We certainly don’t. But we do look forward to it, with the same weird optimism we always have.

It’s been utterly relentless. So now it’s time to rest, take a breather, and spend time with those closest to us.

On the 4th of January, we’ll get back to it, refreshed and ready to take whatever next year can throw at us.

Until then, we send you our best wishes and wish you a very Merry Christmas.

Stay safe,

Tom and Mike
