Ahh, October – month of crunchy leaves, carved pumpkins and early nightfalls. It was a moderately busy month for the MTeam, with award wins, yet more exams passed and a trio of new starters joining the team.
Let’s start with some celebrations for members of the MTeam. Well done to: Ronni Murray, for passing the Content Marketing HubSpot exam; Sabrina Di-Cienzo, for passing her Agile Project Management exam; and Gregg Winkel, for passing his ILM level 3 course. Congratulations to all of you!
We’ve had three new people join the team this month. A huge welcome to;
Hope you guys have a great time being part of the MTeam!
In what’s become a yearly tradition for some of Mirus’s more motivated members, a selection of the MTeam tackled this year’s Swanbourne Endeavour. The event sees participants running, climbing and slogging their way through the wet and the mud in a 5km obstacle course. This year, we had 12 people take part, including - Joe Humphries, Nick Sanderson, Jake McAllister, Hannah Braxton, James Thompson, Katie Barrington, Tom Williams, Shaun O’Hanlon, David Willis, Darren Challender, Paul Tomlinson and Eoin Tomlinson. In another success for the MTeam, the group won a trophy as the first team effort to cross the finish line in the Elite 5k course – well done to you all!
Congratulations are also due for Becky Hawkes, who won Colleague of the Month this October for her hard work and dedication! Here’s just some of the comments they’ve received from the staff:
“Becketitaaa (Becky)!! She has smashed this month and has been motivating the team 😊 Always bubbly and always puts a smile on our faces. “
“Becky please. She’s always really helpful with Connectwise”
“I’d like to vote for Becky, she consistently goes above and beyond and she cares a lot about getting the job done right!”
“I’d like to vote for Becky please. She’s been under a lot of pressure and handled it well.”
“The respect her team have for her is very evident and she encourages great teamwork, not just for the Procurement guys but all of us!”
“Becky – coping well with the pressure of so many different things going on.”
Sounds like a well-deserved win, Becky! Well done and keep it up – you’re #smashingIT.
On the last Friday of the month, we tucked into our usual Friday Feed – and after August’s delicious hog roast, we couldn’t turn down another opportunity to tuck into some fresh pork sandwiches, with all the scratchings, barbecue coating and apple sauce we could handle!
We waved goodbye to October in a typically traditional manner; with a suitably spooky Halloween celebration. The MTeam got busy not only with their wardrobes but their carving skills too, creating their own costumes and carving up some pretty spectacular pumpkin designs too. Christine Anley was crowned our carver for the year for her awesome graveyard landscape, while Aishling Savchuk won the costume competition with her sickly-green face painting and witch’s outfit. Thanks to everyone who entered – you definitely got the office into the spooky spirit!
And just like that, we’ve reached the penultimate month of the year. Looking back over the past few months, its great to see what the MTeam has achieved! Christmas is not far away, and if you’ve been checking our socials such as our Instagram, you would’ve seen some behind the scenes of what we’ve got coming up in the next few weeks!
As we enter October, the MTeam awaits another month of exciting events, not to mention our usual Halloween festivities! You can follow our exploits us on our new Instagram page. Follow us and stay up to date on the latest exciting events at Mirus!
