Poker faces, fond farewells and World Cup glory

Last week saw a bumper social schedule for the Speaksters, with a team bonding poker night, a farewell lunch for our account executive Nick who is moving on to pastures new and the crowning of the first ever Speak Table Football World Cup Champion on Friday. Here’s a few snaps to give you a flavour!

Put an egg on it

If you’re a keen follower of our social channels you’ll know we have a sporadic but long-running strand called ‘How an art director eats‘. Here’s the fifth installation in that series, altogether now… “Put an egg on it!”

Goodbye, NVB

And here’s Nick opening his leaving card, wearing a shirt made from his mum’s old curtains.



Full House

The Speak team (plus a couple of guests) gathered to play a few friendly hands of poker on Thursday night. Tan ran out the eventual winner, with Matthew our newest member of the editorial team coming a very close second.

The Table Football World Cup Final (Colombia v Spain)

Friday saw the culmination of our (slightly late-running) table football World Cup. The final was contested by Tan (Spain) and George (Colombia).


After an intense game Tan took the cup with a 6-4 victory…


And George, not quite stoic in defeat, was left to rue his missed opportunities a la Luiz.
