Delighted to announce that our client CHARPAK Ltd was RUNNER UP (highly commended) in the entire UK SME category at the Nov 29, 2017 Business Culture Awards gala event.
Fantastic achievement guys!
Other winners on the night included Easyjet, Vodafone, TFL and the Home Office – so Charpak was in pretty good company.
So proud of them and, of course, the work we have done with them, including the production of their Charpak Charter of core values, over many years.
It’s a lovely payback for everyone!
Pedro the Jester
Fantastic - well done indeed Peter
Good to see corporate culture getting the profile it deserves
Why The Corporate Jester?
Because there is always a need to “call it out”, point out the emperor’s clothes may not be quite so fancy as he thinks (or others are telling him) and boldly say what others dare not!
The role of court jester was well known centuries ago and they had the licence to attack pomposity or stupidity in their betters without fear of retribution. (Well nearly!) Many of Shakespeare’s plays have a fool who is the commentator on human foibles – the most famous probably being in King Lear, the architect of his own downfall through his wilfulness. Familiar?
May not an ass know when the cart draws the horse? (Fool – King Lear, Act 1 scene 4)
