This month IQPC New York held their annual holiday party.
A core part of the evening is the Annual Awards Ceremony, an opportunity to celebrate success and recognize some of the key people that worked so hard in 2017 to drive the business forward.
Over the course of the evening we gave out over 25 awards, with 5 of them based on our core values and 1 for the rookie of the year!
Congratulations to all of our award winners and here’s to another fantastic year at IQPC, we look forward to what lies ahead in 2018!
It’s January, which means it’s time for IQPC’s UK Annual Awards.
Every year in January our five London based businesses come together to celebrate the year gone by and recognise the achievements of their peers.
The night is always a highlight of the IQPC calendar and this year was no exception, with a fantastic evening of drinks and dancing, enhanced by stunning views over London, from the rooftop Oxo Tower Restaurant.
Congratulations to all our winners and it looks like a great night was had by all.
Christmas may long be over but the memories of fun times linger at IQPC Dubai!
Just before the holiday break IQPC Dubai hosted their annual Christmas Party at Noir Bar, Kempinski Hotel. with a theme of “Dressed to Impress – With a Festive Twist”.
IQPC’ers took the morning off to get ready and then arrived dressed in their finest attire incorporating an element of festive cheer. Some opted for Christmas colors, from red, to gold, silver and green. Others chose to accessorize with tinsel, angel wings and reindeer noses! A handful of stylish people opted for a safe but non-the-less impressive suit!
The day was a great opportunity to relax, reflect on our achievements and celebrate success with our Employee Awards. Many people were recognized that day but a big shout has to go out to our Dubai Employee of the year Anush Shetty.
At IQPC, quality is important, it’s part of our name after all! So we are understandably quite proud when this is recognized by the industries and clients we serve.

The “ding, ding, ding” of the Red Kettle is a well known and loved charitable fundraiser across the United States, and never more so than at Christmas
The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve, when the red kettles are packed away for the season. According to the Salvation Army, “Volunteers make the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night.”
This week it was our NYC Team’s turn to get involved in the spirit of Christmas when Sales Director Chris and his team decided to pitch in and spend some time ringing the bell in NYC; it looks like they had a great time as well…

This holiday season IQPC NY partnered with Project Renewal in Manhattan to provide coats and blankets to the homeless.
Project Renewal runs the New Providence Women’s Shelter. Established in 1998, this shelter helps 130 women who suffer from addiction and/or mental illness to address the issues that instigated their addiction and homelessness, while garnering the tools to live independently and successfully in the community.
Many people will stay warmer in NYC this winter because of our combined efforts in collecting winter clothing for the homeless of NYC. As a group we will be donating a total of 64 items:
- 14—Winter Jackets
In the run up to Christmas, IQPC’s London office is buzzing with several events taking place to celebrate a hugely successful 2017 for the company.
Last week we welcomed December by focusing on what the festive season is all about – the spirit of giving and finding time for others.
Each year IQPC London get together to support a wonderful charity who make an amazing difference to people’s lives – ellenor (https://ellenor.org/). ellenor is the only charitable service in the country to provide end-of-life, cancer and respite care to people of all ages in the hospice or in the comfort of their own home. An incredible 93p in every £1 donated to ellenor goes directly in to support and care for patients and families.
Getting into the sprit of Christmas throughout the day IQPC staff made donations through a variety of events.
As if the festive season doesn’t provide enough temptation, IQPC’s very own budding Bake-Off stars spoilt us rotten with a variety of delicious home-made chocolate cakes, rocky-roads, cup-cakes and a whole bunch of other tasty treats that had us contemplating our new year’s resolutions early.
This set us up perfectly for the evening raffle and auction, with MC Serkhan Ibrahim calling the shots and our staff making some amazing bids to up the donations for ellenor, and ensuring we beat our donation target of £7,000.
With IQPC matching pound for pound the donations made by our staff, we achieved a fantastic total of £15,931, which will go a long way to making a positive difference to people’s lives.
IQPC is proud to continuously support ellenor and the incredibly valuable work they do.
This week saw the launch of SSON HARDtalk, our new online interview series that cuts straight to the chase and asks the questions that no-one else dares
Presented by Deborah Kops, who is recognized as the true First Lady of Shared Services & Outsourcing, SSON HARDtalk discusses the underlying issues that everyone is thinking, but few will actually voice, with the most influential executives involved in Shared Services and Outsourcing.
One of the things I love about IQPC is how welcoming our local teams are to international visitors.
Recently on a work trip to New York, Effa our Global Head of Events Marketing was treated to a Yankees game. And as you can see she was joined by just a few of her local colleagues.
