Andrew Kelly, Head of Business Development, attempted to provide a solution: “I looked on the internet and told Tim we could probably get air-con for around £5000, but he didn’t seem to care - it was all about adding value and getting results for our clients”.

Prospecting tool, CANDDi, turns website traffic into business by unveiling which businesses and individuals are on your website. By using the CANDDi product themselves, his staff are able to spot the hottest prospects, aren’t burning leads, and know which visitors are warmer than others. So although they won’t be getting air conditioning this year, there will be buckets of water to cool them down, a generous ice cream budget, and a foot hammock for the pregnant one!
