Bear
Collection

Our esteemed Managing Director, Sue Tipton MBE, has passionately cultivated a remarkable collection of bears over the years, transforming a simple pastime into a captivating journey. While the exact count of her cherished bears remains a delightful mystery to you, Sue has curated a diverse array of these cuddly companions.

Each bear likely holds a unique story, representing a momentous occasion, a fond memory, or perhaps a token of appreciation. One can only imagine the joy and sentiment that emanates from this bear haven, where each addition to the collection adds a layer of charm and nostalgia.

Question is, how many does she currently have?

Christmas
Jumper Day

Christmas Jumper Day is a fun tradition and one we follow every year at Protocol, with staff coming to work in their goofiest Christmas themed jumpers. The day also aims to raise awareness and funds for charities, with people contributing to spreading holiday cheer and making a positive impact. We don’t usually make a competition out of it, but this year we thought we’d use it as an opportunity to interact with our audience.

How many Protocol staff members do you think are currently wearing a Christmas jumper?
