20th Anniversary of SY Limited

I wanted to write few words to mark the passing of 20 years since starting SY Limited in 2002

In that time, we have witnessed one worldwide financial crash (so far…) and a global pandemic. We have lost a planet from our solar system, the EU lost a key member state and the first iPhone was launched. Some of the worlds biggest ever organisations have appeared – and some have departed.

The list goes on but, in short, life has gone on in the way that life tends to go on.

I thought about writing a corporate style “it gives me great pleasure to announce…” but – as I started SY to get away from that kind of thing – I’m not going to start now.

When I started the business, I was told by a wise old chap that you must imagine starting with two bags. One called ‘Luck’ and is full and the other named ‘Experience’ is empty. The trick is to fill the ‘Experience’ bag before ‘Luck’ runs out. 

The whole thing is a huge journey of personal growth and development. You learn every single day – sometimes from the most unexpected of people. You don’t always get it right, but you do your best.

And it really is all about the people.

I am lucky to be surrounded by a team of truly brilliant ones (maybe there’s a little left in that bag after all), and its only because of them and their efforts that we have come through a few very challenging years.

And we have come through. Our business in better shape than ever with a stable product set and outstanding delivery team.

So I really want to say a huge thank you to all our lovely staff, suppliers and customers who have made this possible.
