The other day I was asked which leader most inspires me. Coming up with one just inspirational leader is extremely difficult as there many who have influenced my life, career and the way I do business in different ways.

A great year

2014 has been a great year for Cleankill. We’ve stuck to our ethos of transparent pricing, honesty, reliability and great customer service and this is paying dividends as more people are hearing about us and then staying with us.

Thank you to everyone we've been in contact with or worked with over the past year for helping us to have such an incredibly busy and rewarding year.

On Wednesday 5 November Paul and Ian made the trip to the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham to visit the Pest-Tech exhibition run by the National Pest Technicians’ Association.

The venue was buzzing with all of the major suppliers vying for our attention. Along with the many different types of bait box on display, there were some new products such as a rodenticidal foam that can be applied into holes used as mouse and rat runs.

We knew that our very own Chris Davis (Cleankill Service and Technical Manager) is one of the most experienced and able pest controllers not only in the South East but in the country. 

This was confirmed when we heard that he had passed his Level 3 Diploma in Pest Control and added this to his graduate and post-graduate qualifications.

Don’t skimp on your pest control – it could cost you much more than a pest prevention contract!

With our decades of experience in pest control there’s not much we don’t know about or have a view about.

This week we’ve been asked about super rats in the Ashdown Forest. To date we haven’t seen any of these giant rats but it’s true that were there is a lot of food around you will naturally find some larger than usual rats.

Last week was very busy - three days at a great event – The Facilities Show at ExCell in London. Despite sore legs, hips and ankles from standing so long, we left the event on a high and with many good quality leads.
As well as working hard, we had fun as lots of brave people tried the sago worm larvae and the grasshoppers – something different that was being talked about all around the massive exhibition halls

Barrie Foster's commemorative trophy

Friday 16th May saw all 24 Cleankill staff enjoy a morning's conference at a hotel in the New Forest followed by an afternoon Battlefield Live experience which left everyone aching for a few days afterwards! After a champagne reception in the hotel grounds we had a meal in a private dining room. The event celebrated Cleankill reaching a one million pound contract portfolio and it was also a celebration of Barrie Foster's retirement.

Rewarding our pest control technicians for consistently delivering a great service is part of the way we do business at Cleankill. Last year our service technicians met their ‘state-of-service’ targets for quarter one and quarter two which won them a day out.

Last Thursday the Cleankill directors got together in Alfriston for one of our regular ‘Vision’ meetings where we discuss the future aims and directions of the company. The next morning Jon and I had some bird work to do in Brighton (the risk assessment for hangovers and ladders was carried out thoroughly!!). When we had finished, Jon took me back to Seaford where I picked up my car to head back to the office in Croydon.
