9 April How the DofE helped shape my career and improved my mental health
City Stories: Artesian Solutions
Why are you supporting City Giving Day?
Working in the fast-paced world of B2B Technology, it’s easy to focus 100% of your efforts on growing the business. But we want to build more than a great product, we want to create a company and team of people who act with integrity, mindfulness and who go the extra mile both inside and outside our organisation.
Which charities or communities do you support?
This year we launched several initiatives focused on employee well-being and mental health and chose to support Mind, the mental health charity. A team from Artesian has already completed the Three Peaks Challenge (pictured) and we have many other events planned to raise awareness and support the charity.
How will you celebrate City Giving Day?
Last year we hosted the ‘Brain of the City’ quiz, selling out the 120 tickets in record time and winning an award from the Lord Mayor. This year we’re back again, bigger than ever with multiple venues running concurrent quizzes, with questions set by Artesian’s resident quizmaster, Nick Boardman.
Which charity are you supporting, why are you supporting it?
Working with Mind, we’re campaigning to improve the mental health and well-being of the millions of people who suffer from mental health problems.
“City Giving Day is a fantastic opportunity for the capital to come together and give back to the community – we couldn’t be more excited.”
Andrew Yates, Co-Founder & CEO, Artesian
