Viva five!

By Kim Browne

“To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue. These five things are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness.” Confucius

It’s hard to believe but Twisted Toast has reached its milestone 5th birthday and there’s been plenty reminiscing happening this month. Before you think we forgot to invite you to the party, I admit we decided not to have one, but rather to celebrate this milestone occasion with a special treat for our staff. The Toast is officially closed today as we head off for a bit of “us” time ☺

Autumn seems to have sprung on us from nowhere and as we ready ourselves for the winter months ahead we are foraging our way through a wide variety of work. Let’s just say “hybrid” has never been a more fitting description for what we do!

We are also very proud to have been awarded our first project by new client VivA (Virtuele Instituut vir Afrikaans) just this week and also welcome Jamavani and OBZ to our growing list of new clients. Thank you too to our wonderful contract clients, who have all re-signed their annual contracts with us. Without you we would not be where we are today and we are ever-grateful for your support.

Five is a magical number: It’s the second primary number, there are five working days in a week, five fingers on each hand, we have five natural senses (hear, see, taste, smell, touch) and the five elements are fire, air, water, earth and spirit.

At The Toast five represents a new chapter in our business. We are perfectly poised to take on the challenges of a small but vibrant and growing, profitable business. We’ll be reviewing our systems, which need to grow with us and concentrate on streamlining disciplines to get rid of things we’ve outgrown. We hope you continue to journey with us on this awesome adventure.

High fives!
