The holiday season is upon us. Whilst most people start to wind down ready for their exotic holidays, dreaming of soaking up the summer sun on golden sands with a cocktail in their hand, life at Foundation seems to get busier!

Their first few weeks have been quite intense, with a heavy training schedule to get them up-to-speed on Foundation IT, our customers, and the Dell portfolio.

They’ll also be spending three days a week in Dell’s Demand Generation Team so it’ll help to further cement our great relationship with Dell.
