Karaoke Rompa Christmas Party

Rompa Christmas PartyIt’s that time of year when colleagues and co-workers congregate in a function room to celebrate the achievements of the past year and have a drink or two.

The 5:30 start at the Proact Stadium is quite early and has been known to catch out even the most seasoned party goer. Having not paced myself particularly well last year and overindulged somewhat, I was hoping to learn from my past mistakes and looking forward to watching others make some. Despite my best intentions I still found myself belting out a Pogues tune at 10 o’clock.

The pass the parcel was a hit. Each layer contained another novelty item such as Dame Edna Glasses or a neon wig. The prize at the centre was an extra day of annual leave. Thanks very much Donna!

Highlights for me were Graham letting go and having a dance to Erasure in his fetching Man City Rudolph jumper, Cass doing the “running man” in stilettoes and Leila’s rendition of All I Want for Christmas (is you) with backing volcals provided by Graham, Emma and Cass. There was a very positive vibe to the evening and everyone had a great night.

A great end to a great year.


Dan & Kate’s Recent Trip To ASHA in Orlando!

It was with great heartache that Marketing Manager Dan and Product Manager Kate left the cold drizzly grey UK and flew out to Orlando in November to go to the ASHA Convention. ASHA – The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association get together on a massive scale with hundreds of seminars over 5 days and an exhibition area.

Dan & Kate took this opportunity to meet with existing suppliers and also to look at new products that are available across the pond that we can bring to Rompa and to Winslow to develop the speech and language product range! (As well as an opportunity to soak up a bit of winter Sun and enjoy the local surroundings!)

We met a lot of fantastic people and saw a lot of great products so keep a look out for them in 2015!
