Home Sweet Home: Celebrating our new Brighton offices with our international team
With the sun beating down on our new Brighton offices, we were excited to welcome the whole Kirk & Kirk international team to celebrate the beginning of a new era.
From Portland to Poland, from Manchester to Minnesota, thirty of the Kirk & Kirk crew got together to celebrate what has been an amazing 2019 and to explore ways to make 2020 an even better year.
Recent years have seen enormous expansion with new clients opening across the planet. We now have one hundred independent opticians carrying Kirk & Kirk across the USA and an office in Philadelphia, which is bursting at the seams. Our UK office covers the rest of the world and, with several hundred clients to look after, it was time to move to a space that allows us to do the job in a beautiful environment that gives us room to grow.
Nestled on the South coast of England, our car park edges the English channel and if you stand on a chair you can almost see France. Floor to ceiling windows allow the sun to illuminate our day and we cannot wait for the Spring when we will all be enjoying lunch together on the waterfront.
This was a fantastic way to christen our new home with colourful eyewear and colourful personalities contributing to our first full team gathering. There were several new faces to the team who we will be announcing over the coming weeks.
A huge THANK YOU to everybody who joined us including Brighton Gin and Speakeasy who animated superb presentations and to Big Beach Cafe for the delicious catering throughout the event. What an amazing way to kick off the New Year.
Wishing you all health and happiness in 2020.
