We have recently had some changes within the Talking Mats team, including welcoming new Associates and Board Members. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing everyone in our new ‘Meet the Team’ blog series.
First up – we are delighted to introduce Kipp!
Name: Kipp, Kippie, Kipster (if you sound enthusiastic I’ll respond, although you have to speak a bit louder these days!)
Role: general dogsbody , protector of all Talking Mats’ staff, chief biscuit taster
Talking Mats & Me:
I like to follow a routine (it’s the Collie in me) and working at Talking Mats lets me do this. I arrive and my first task is to have a wee sniff of the office and everyone in it. Once everyone has been identified I let them get on with it until it’s time to let everyone (in the whole office block) know that the postman is here, and then the courier, and then any important visitors. Tea break is good, particularly when Margo has bought me Organic treats (but for anyone visiting I like any sort of treats I’m really not fussy!).
Every now and then an awful noise starts and doesn’t stop and Lois puts a very very bright coat on me and I herd everyone outside (it’s the Collie and the Sheepdog in me), then hang around the car park for a while until we go back inside. I don’t like the awful noise but afterwards everyone tells me I am so clever and I get more biscuits. In between all the sniffing, barking, herding and biscuits I catch up on some sleep under Paula’s desk. Day over, job done!
Thanks to Kipp and Paula for our first Meet the Team blog. Look out for more Meet the Team blogs over the next few weeks.
