Free School Breakfast Club in Derby

I’m incredibly proud to be able to support and follow in the footsteps of Kavita Oberoi on her mission along with Derby County Community Trust to bring free school breakfasts to local children under the Breakfast Club scheme.

“I’m very proud Velez are getting involved in the Breakfast Club project. It’s so important children have access to free breakfasts before school and families/working parents are supported during these challenging times. We hope to see many other local businesses getting involved in the scheme.”

Velez Managed Services are delighted to be supporting this vital campaign by sponsoring 20 children for the Breakfast Club scheme. With many families facing financial difficulties, particularly due to the COVID-19 crisis, we know just how important it is to back appeals like this and ensure families are supported and children across Derby have access to free meals when they return to school in September.

Pandemic driven growth

Whilst many businesses have and continue to suffer greatly due to the pandemic, many have been shut completely as a result of such. It is easy to look at this situation as complete disaster.

There are however some businesses experiencing the opposite situation and may have seen a growth spurt as a result of this global situation. Businesses across delivery and e-commerce have largely seen increases in business along with online tutoring and education, remote work and tech infrastructure such as SaaS and PasS.

Recently I was featured once again on the Benjamin Brain podcast ‘The Truth About Business’ in a special round table episode that focused on how businesses are coping during this period of uncertainty.

Joined by the founder of HUUB, Think3, Future Cloud and others in this roundtable – take time to watch below and see if any of this resonates with how you are seeing things.

Event driven growth scenarios are not uncommon, whether a pandemic and certain industries pick up, a natural disaster and a specific product gets popular, a competitor struggles and shuts down and you end up with new business – these things occur.

Its important to stick to what your baseline of pre-pandemic business was in the first place, what is it you are the best at, what is your team world class at delivering. Some of the new found customers will stay, others may not, if you have experienced growth during this down turn – don’t take that for granted. If your business isn’t up to delivering the experience the customer needs they will go elsewhere as soon as another viable option appears.

Keep strong, keep safe, keep moving forward.

COVID-19 & Maintenance

One of the interesting things we have come to notice during this global pandemic is the rush for many organisations to re-look at their third party maintenance options, particularly around storage maintenance.

Whilst as a company we have remained fairly quiet, not advertising or promoting our services to take advantage of the global crisis – instead we have hunkered down put ourselves to work and continue to deliver service excellence.

One thing that has become apparent is that storage maintenance particularly around EMC VNX storage and HP storage we have noticed a large increase in demand for during this period.

It should come as no surprise really that during these times corporations are looking to ensure the integrity of data but also that of continued service as demand grows around the world for almost every service provider and corporation out there.

I’m proud of not only our efforts to help those in need during this crisis, but more so of the millions of people around the globe doing everything they can to help the planet return to some sense of normality in the months to come.
