The office furniture is in, the feature wall is painted luxuriant purple and there’s a seemingly never ending stream of stationery deliveries. Let me check…… our IT works, the phones work and the website goes live shortly. In fact it all seems to be going remarkably smoothly – so far the only difficulty has been with candidates, clients and suppliers getting my business partner’s name right. So far we’ve had Becky Simkins, Becky Simpkins, Becky Simpkiss and even Betty Simkiss!

For the record, it’s Becky Simkiss…..or Rebecca if you’ve been naughty!!
