Helen Stenhouse, Managing Director at People Puzzles talking about the variety of businesses that we work with.
Helen: Well the funniest ones got to be the cricket Farm that have warehouse after warehouse of crickets, they also breed, snakes, reptiles, geckos, tortoises, terrapins and all manner of weird wonderful creatures. The funniest thing was leaving that prospect meeting because the car park was full of crickets hopping around. That was quite strange, but i did enjoy holding the snake.
We’ve got a farm shop which is great, I’ve got a company which is an amazing manufacturer of the polymer for contact lenses and they just create millions and millions of little tiny disks that get turned into contact lenses, that was a great one. Lots of really weird and wonderful tech companies. Sugru was also great, they manufacturer a funky little Plasticine type thing which is also like a Super Glue.
I love the fact that one day I’m in a cricket Farm, the next day I’m in a tech company and the next day I’m in a glue factory. You can’t beat small businesses, the of innovation and variety is great.
