You will see from the photos that we are (most of us anyway) past the first flush of youth. We are more ‘weathered’. We’ve absorbed the stresses and strains of travelling to the four corners, being changed, being merged, acquired, promoted and fired, and we have made through to a state of tranquil inner-peace. Well, not quite, one or two of us still twitch a little.

Our profiles appear below, and we are all on LinkedIn, so check us out. Meet us?
