I named my firm after the bird called the Swift because I want to reflect the characteristics of the swift in the delivery of business services to all our clients.
Swifts are highly active, unobtrusive birds that live co-operatively in communities, often nesting inconspicuously in urban areas, such as under bridges, in barns and house roofs. They are among the fastest flying birds with precision flight, enabling them to catch insects in their beak and manoeuvre successfully within the smallest confines. They are known for their protective strong nests, and their long migrations and great endurance.
Effective action delivered with economy, speed and precision, agility and endurance are characteristics to aspire to and ones I deliver to my clients.
