02 December 2016 Congratulations to Maytek Solutions

I have been the consultant for a small organisation based in Norfolk and their second stage audit for being certified to ISO 9001:2015 was completed satisfactorily with just a few points to clear up. Well done Maytek Solutions Ltd of Fakenham, your hard work has paid off!

April 2014 Pleasant Travels

November 2013 Travel Extraordinaire

November saw a spate of travelling with 1 week seeing me in France, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. The French audit was in a very old town in the south and the hotel was right in the centre next to the river, very relaxing but I did manage to pay for someone else’s bill before I… Read more »
