Never underestimate the power of words, especially when it comes to business.
On Wednesday 11 September, we invited to an Award Celebration & Thank You Party in our office, to finally celebrate the award wins and to thank everybody involved in our journey. The official celebration of the Microsoft award was in Las Vegas in July, but our CEO did not feel that it was right to celebrate without all the people that made our success possible.

The corporate world is not so different from the world of Westeros. Whether you’re pro Lannister or Dothraki, backing the Iron Fleet or fighting for the North, or even Team White Walkers, one thing each group has in common is the fact they are all united under one leader. What is the leadership lessons we can learn from GoT?
Our reasons for participating at the HBF Run for a Reason this year could maybe not even be counted on one hand. There are many reasons why we wanted to participate. Our own personal health was of course one of them, and Team Illuminance was signed up for the Blackmore’s 12 km run on this crisp Sunday morning in Perth WA.
