I must start with a heartfelt thank you to our brilliant clients for their support in this most unprecedented of years. A special welcome also to the many new clients with whom we have had the pleasure of working. Your patience, adaptability and trust have helped us to plot a safe and secure course through this turbulent year.
Despite the obvious challenges of 2020, we have so many reasons to be proud this year. The resilience and dedication of my colleagues at LEAP, along with our supplier partners has been incredible.
Our moving image team has found innovative and safe ways to shoot great original content during lockdown. Our language, production and digital teams have delivered global brand and product campaigns across digital, social and eCRM. We have built websites, launched employer brand propositions and localised hundreds of hours of video content. We are even seeing a post-lockdown resurgence in print revenues which were so brutally impacted by the initial and subsequent lockdowns.
Alongside a busy year for our creative services teams, our specialist finance studios securely produced and delivered more than 100,000 pages of PowerPoint, fund reports and complex investment commentary. This continuing growth has consolidated our position as the top UK finance sector production company.
However, when I look back at an extraordinary 2020, the most important thing for me as CEO, is a total validation of the powerful culture here at LEAP. The LEAP culture I am so pleased to shout about is built on three simple core values:
to gain the trust and respect of our clients, to work with a quiet determination to always deliver our best and to pull together when the demands placed on us are at their most challenging.
We’ve equally seen these values demonstrated on a daily basis by our clients and supplier partners, and it’s this, above all else, that convinces me that together, we will all come through these incredibly challenging times into a stronger and better future.
However, as they say, the future is for another day. For now, let me again give a huge thanks to you all. It just remains for me, and the whole management team, to send you our best wishes for the festive season and good health and fortune in the year ahead.
