Vistech, honoured to attend the Teesside Hospice Corporate Partner Lunch

Vistech had the pleasure of attending the Teesside Hospice Corporate Partner Lunch, sponsored by Hardwick Hall Hotel on Thursday 25th May,
The event was hosted by Debbie Coulson, Director of Income Generation, for Teesside Hospice and David Smith, Chief Executive who provided an insightful update on developments at the hospice as they strive towards reaching more local people who urgently need their care.

As one of the guest speakers for the event Vistech’s Operations Director, Paul Heeran had the honour of sharing Vistech’s story. Delivering a powerful presentation on why we are so passionate about supporting Teesside Hospice, Paul expressed how he readily accepted the opportunity to speak about Vistech Services and why we chose to be a Corporate Partner to Teesside Hospice.

In his speech, Paul talked about the recent successes and awards achieved by Vistech Services, which include, the Security and Fire Excellence Award for customer care initiative of the year in 2021 and finalists in 2022. Being recognised as one of the regions fastest growing businesses for two years running, through the Ward Hadaway Fastest 50 Awards, Double winners at the inaugural Velocitees event this year, being recipients of the fastest-growing job creation and fastest-growing turnover awards and finally we were finalists for the Tees Business of the Year Award at the annual Tees Business awards.

“These awards are recognition of the excellent people we employ and their families who support them. We are committed to quality service delivery and are one of the most accredited companies within the Security Industry. To comply with these accreditations, we are required to evidence, not only our commitment to excellence but our dedication to Corporate and Social Responsibility.”

“As part of ours, we wanted to provide support to exceptional local charitable organisations, we were surprised just how many there are, within our region, which is testament to the great place we choose to live and work in.”

“Having a collaborative approach, we spoke to our staff about Teesside Hospice, asking if any of them knew of it, the work they do and what experiences they had with them?”
Paul went on to share personal stories of these experiences from many Vistech employees and expressed how these stories helped make our decision and show why The Hospice, are truly deserving of all of Vistech’s support.

Concluding his speech Paul said: “Teesside Hospice truly are Fantastic, we made the right decision in supporting them and becoming a Corporate Partner, we look forward to carrying on this support in the future and will continue to promote them and their unique services to our customers, urging you all to do the same.”

The corporate partner events are an excellent opportunity to come together with other, like-minded people and businesses from across Teesside.
