FFEI Logo  300dpiA triumphant team from world-beating imaging technology firm FFEI have another success to celebrate - but this one is a little bit closer to home than the firm's prized Queen's Award for enterprise.

The Maylands-based firm can once again claim to employ Dacorum's best brains after their team took top spot at the annual Connect Dacorum/Community Action Dacorum event at Shendish Manor on Thursday.

The team of Ian Crawforth, Georgina Hutchinson, George Hutchinson, Kevin Radcliffe, Bob Wilson, Andy Cook, Helen Cook, Roy Smith, Julian Payne and Stephen Meek successfully negotiated 10 tricky rounds of questions set by Gazette editor John Francis, which included rounds on the First World War, commercial sponsorship and famous beards.

An they held their nerve during the final accumulator round, which can see back-markers surge through the field to score a last-gasp victory. Lasr year FFEI, winners in 2012, were pipped at the post by Furnell Transport on the final question.

quizWould you like to be known as the Brightest Business in Dacorum?  Then why not book a table for 10 for your staff, friends and customers to enjoy a great evening out on Thursday 20th March at Shendish Manor Hotel.

This is a fantastic opportunity to team build and network, whilst raising money for Community Action Dacorum and Connect Dacorum in the process.  Not only that, but the title of ‘Brightest Business in Dacorum’ is up for the taking too!

Last year’s event was a great success, so book soon to avoid missing out.

There are only 20 tables of 10 available and already some of last year’s Quizzers have booked for this year.
