D&D Excellence : your Partner for Excellence

D&D News - 2005 onwards

We have been publishing short electronic newsletters since the site went live in mid 2000. They contain a variety of information about our activities, including work projects, recent contacts, and even the occasional piece of humour finds its way in. As well as showing the nature of our work, we are told that they also convey something of our values - which for our clients is as important as our expertise in the Excellence arena.

With the review and improvement of the site in autumn 2005, we took the decision just to republish the items from 2005 onwards. However we have also provided a list of just the main contents of earlier newsletters in case you want to check the subjects out.
