November Talk with Katie Boot

IT’S NOVEMBER! – the year is coming to an end and Q4 is well under way. In the world of business it can be a time for sales for retail or product businesses or a time for planning and reviewing for service businesses. Today we’re talking to Katie Boot who is a marketing executive at specialist tech team Ntegra, based in Swindon. The team work globally often solving difficult digital challenges using innovative tech solutions.

What’s your business highlight for November 2021?
Our highlight must be sponsoring the Future Tech Superstar Award at the Wiltshire Techies. It was a great experience to go to Sandstorm Studios just outside Swindon in person, earlier this month to present the award to our two (very worthy) category winners. It was a great night for those working in tech within the area.

And what about a personal highlight this month?
I am finally getting to leave the country and go on my honeymoon 13 months after our lockdown wedding!

Holiday aside, I am enjoying making professional and personal plans for 2022, the sky is the limit for next year

This is a month for Bonfire Night & Diwali – do either of those hold meaning or memory for you? 
In our family, Bonfire Night is a time for the whole clan to all invade one lucky family member’s house for a BBQ, sparklers, and fireworks.

Any excuse to get everyone together and watch your Dad try to not set fire to any part of the garden!

November represents Movember – Men’s Health Awareness Month. What does this mean to Ntegra?
Ntegra’s HR Manager, Katie Bullock does a great job of highlighting Movember internally across the business. Last year, we sponsored facial hair growth. This year, Katie has set up a virtual ‘man cave’ where the male members of Ntegra have a safe space to talk and have access to helpful resources if they felt like they needed to use them (they don’t have to grow a moustache or beard though!)

There has been a lot going on the past nearly two years and we all need to make sure that the men around us in our lives are OK.

Have you got any events planned for November or December you’d like to shout about – either that you are running or attending? 
Yes! On Wednesday 1st December – Just for Fun Holidays are joining us at our HQ in the Workshed, Swindon to wrap Christmas presents as part of their festive plan to provide ‘surprise’ gifts to the children they work with who might not get many presents this year. We’re very aware that many families are struggling to make ends meet.

The Ntegra and Just for Fun elves are looking forward to making sure no one child who attends their holiday clubs goes without a present this Christmas. 

And finally: 
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy December and Christmas. May we all come back bigger, brighter and better in 2022!
