Rambutans spotted!

David spotted some beautiful Rambutans on a recent family trip to Barcelona to celebrate his birthday.

It was great to see such fresh Rambutans on European soil. These little beauties were front and centre of an amazing exotic fruit stall in La Boqueria Market, Barcelona. A very nice (and delicious) birthday surprise!

Joy of Alone

We Rambutans recently took a little personality test just for a bit of fun, and to see what kind of insight (if any) it could give us into ourselves, and each other. Kat was reflecting on the results. Called the Briggs Meyer 16 Personalities test, it’s formulated as a questionnaire where your responses are collated…

Is more always good?

Don’t miss the music by just chasing dollars. David reflects from the side of a piano in one of the UK’s busiest financial districts.

Don’t step on a bee!

Here at Treetops, having a beautiful first-floor office with large patio doors opening onto a balcony is wonderful at any time, but at its absolute best in the summer. However, nothing represents a Rambutan Summer more than our Sue running around squealing at the sight of a bee or wasp in the room! Perhaps ‘Don’t step…

What’s the exam question?

As many teenagers and students have reached the end of the exam season and can finally get their heads out of their books, Mark gives a timely reminder about the importance in business of getting the exam question right. You’ll often hear me ask in client and internal meetings, “what’s the exam question?”. Well, not so much often, more like most…

International Joke Day

July 1 saw International Joke Day… a celebration which Kat just couldn’t let pass by without a little nod to business jokes! A day in the office can be a tad tedious without some of the banter we’ve grown accustomed to! Jokes and pranks are standard in the Rambutan HQ, as we believe that having fun…
