Winter Socials and celebrations

Venner Shipley’s team spirit is always flying high, even when it is cold outside.

In December we supported the Save the Children charity; sporting festive jumpers with a prize for the ‘best’ one.

As in previous years, we made a charitable donation to The Trussell Trust to help provide food to those in need over the holidays, in lieu of Christmas cards.

For our Winter Social we all came together for an afternoon of plenty of fun with some delightful festive food, beverages and entertainment from a live band!


This month, 10 years ago, we opened our Guildford office! We had our first office in the Surrey Technology Centre on the Surrey Research Park, before moving to Stirling House in 2018. Over that time, we have grown from three people in 2014 to 17 people today, providing a full IP service to Surrey-based clients and beyond.
