I agree to the
terms & conditions

Two employees, Dan Jennings (Networking Engineer) and Jack Booth (Sales Executive) are throwing themselves into the ring literally to take part in the Ultra White Collar Boxing to raise money for Cancer Research UK.  We caught up with them both to see how their training is coming along:

What made you want to take this challenge on?

Dan – A family member was recently diagnosed with Cancer the support he’s had is fantastic. I am happy to do my part and support those who help others with cancer

Jack – Cancer research is a great charity and is close to the heart due to losing family members to cancer. It’s great to help in any way possible to try to defeat cancer

Have you boxed before?

Dan – No never thrown a punch

Jack – No, I have messed around with some gloves with my older brother but apart from that no

What does the training regime entail?

Jack – Lots of footwork, lots of cardio (unfortunately) and pad work with weekly sparring

Dan – Weight training 4-5 days a week in the morning boxing 3-4 times a week. The boxing lesions stem from the basics to shadow boxing and sparing

How’s the training going so far?

Dan – I am growing in confidence each time I put on the gloves

Jack – it’s going well, learning the movements after every session however have a lot to learn in a short period of time!

What has been the most challenging thing so far?

Jack – foot work, my long stiff body is struggling to move like a butterfly.. imagine Peter Crouch boxing, I am similar

Dan – the footwork and endurance required I have 2 left feet and no rhythm

What are you hoping to take away from the experience?

Dan – I am hoping to help support a good cause

Jack – I am hoping to raise as much money as I can to help cancer research and learn some boxing moves on the way

We will provide another update in a couple of weeks before the big night on the 8th July.  Good luck with the training boys!  If you would like to sponsor either Dan or Jack find links to their Just Giving pages below.

” Being responsible for IT in an organisation which is very tech dependant is a real challenge, especially having no formal IT experience myself.  Having the Nouveau team at the end of the phone is a real-life saver and I have needed a life line many times.  I most appreciate the accessibility, knowledge and friendliness of the team. “

” The company I work for has been using Nouveau Solutions for the past 15+ years and I have had the pleasure myself to build up a good, close relationship with them for about 12 of those years.

Nouveau Solutions have dedicated teams for each different area that are made up of very knowledgeable technicians and engineers that specialise in their specific area of expertise. It is due to this that I always feel confident that Nouveau Solutions will be able to deliver us any IT services that we may request from them (there has been a lot over the years).

They have always gone above and beyond to deliver high quality professional IT services to meet any requirements that we throw at them within any timeframes that we may set.

On top of the ad-hoc IT services we request from Nouveau Solutions, they also monitor, manage, maintain and support some of our network infrastructure and have always been on hand to resolve any issues that may be noticed via their monitoring or raised by us within a timely manner.

We also purchase the majority of our IT equipment including hardware, software and licensing through Nouveau Solutions which is always at a reasonable price and always received within a timely manner.

Since day one of our relationship with Nouveau Solutions we have been appointed to the same one account manager which has allowed him to get to know our business very well. The service that has been provided by him to us has been nothing but exceptional. He always comes across as knowledgeable in any business discussions that we may have and has always been happy to take the time to communicate with us, make us aware of anything that we need to be aware of, or provide us with updates on anything.  I have always had the impression that his main priority is to ensure that we are happy with everything that Nouveau Solutions provides to us and he will do anything to ensure that is the case.

All in all, I have nothing but praise to offer for Nouveau Solutions and would highly recommend them to any company that was looking for an IT services company.  There are definitely no plans here to switch to a different IT services company for the foreseeable future.

Here’s to many more years with using Nouveau Solutions! “

” Nouveau have been brilliant from start to finish – very professional and competitive with their service and pricing. We needed a large number of Firewalls to deploy across our global company over a very short time period and thanks to Jack’s excellent availability, Nouveau’s turn-around time was extremely swift, even with nearly no notice. Nouveau not only provided us with the hardware  – one of their competent technicians supplied us with some design work in the past to help with our data centre firewalls replacement project! Nouveau have been great to work with. “

” In the summer of 2017, I approached Nouveau in the hope of finding a competent partner that could help us through an upcoming hardware refresh. A priority of ours was to discover a local business (within 20 miles) that excelled and specialised in HPE, Dell, Fortinet and Microsoft/Office 365 as we planned to refresh our whole core infrastructure,. This included storage, infrastructure hosting and networking (core, access and perimeter) for our headquarters and our other branches. After an extensive phase of speccing, detail planning and quoting, Andy Swain and his team were able to offer a “spot on” solution for our demands with a very high cost/value ratio. This project led to a very open and trusting partnership with Nouveau and made them our No.1 partner within IT. “
