Going away?

Another year and another success – the Creating Cambridge BIG Summer BBQ 2016 was incredible and that’s all thanks to all of you who attended and our sponsors who made it possible. One of our sponsors was Airport Lynx who, for the second consecutive year, chose to support the event and contribute to making it a phenomenal one.

Howes Percival – It’s the law

It was another great event, attended by amazing organisations and individuals who made this a very special evening. Some where the usual suspects and some were new to the BIG Summer Party. Among the new comers, we had the opportunity to welcome the team at Howes Percival, a leading commercial law firm and one of this year’s sponsors.

Adam of Howes Percival gave a great talk introducing the fantastic work they do and inviting the delegates to engage in conversation.

We’d like to once more thank Adam and the entire team at Howes Percival for being part of the Creating Cambridge BIG Summer BBQ 2016 and hope to have them again in the future.

Howes Percival Added to the Creating Cambridge BIG Summer BBQ 2016 Sponsors

HPCV-LOGOS_MASTERThey say you’re the average of the 5 people you spend most of your time with. If that’s true then Creating Cambridge is getting better by the day as we’re blessed by the company of outstanding organizations such as Howes Percival, an energetic, agile and commercial law firm with lawyers who think outside of the box, delivering innovative and commercial solutions for clients.

We’re really excited to announce Howes Percival as newest sponsor of the Creating Cambridge BIG Summer BBQ 2016!

Howes Percival’s Cambridge office is a little over one year old and in that short time they have become a credible alternative Cambridge legal advisor to exciting start-ups and owner-managed businesses.

Whether it is getting your business structure right, helping to get investors on board or taking your business to the next level, the team at Howes Percival has an agile and energetic approach to business that makes them fun and easy to work with.

Adam Kudryl, Partner, said “Probably the biggest compliment we receive from clients is that we take the pain out of situations and replace it with fun. I think that is down to our free-thinking lawyers who work hard with clients to make every situation a success.”

A BIG Xmas thank you from Creating Cambridge

DSC02493Oh what a night! Where to begin… I guess with a BIG fat thank you to all of you who attended – obviously without you Creating Cambridge wouldn’t exist!

My voice was gone by the end of the evening and so I couldn’t give my thanks in person, here they come now:

Again, thank you to all of you who took the time to attend, you absolutely rock 🙂

A massive thank you to Genie Ventures who supported the event by sponsoring and donating two of the raffle prizes – Genie helped make the event viable and therefore possible. Merci!DSC02506Salus Wellness as funding sponsor for staffing the reception, producing tickets and donating the massage for the raffle.

DSC02491A special thank you to Debby at Tom’s Trust for being part of the event. We’ve managed to raise £350 from the raffle tickets and a portion of the tickets sales and, most importantly we’d like to think we’ve raised awareness. Tom’s Trust works closely with Brainbow, a charity we supported in previous events. Please take a look at this video here.

TT

Last but certainly not least, thank you to Steve and the Pitt Club’s crew… what an amazing job they did and the food was sublime. We could easily grow this event two, maybe three fold but we simply love the Pitt Club (and crew) too much…  Steve would like to inform you all that the Pitt Club is now available for private bookings if any of you would like to organise your own events.

DSC02504Finally, allow me to gift you all with what will no doubt make you laugh or cringe perhaps… Massimo and I trying our best to embarrass ourselves and get into a snow fight in the spirit of the festive season… enjoy and once again, thank you for… Creating Cambridge 🙂

Watch the video here

Ciao form Luca and Massimo (he’s not seen the video yet so we might no longer be friends once he does 😉 )
