We are delighted to announce that we have renewed our membership with British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) – a leading UK trade body for Educational Suppliers – after a successful first year of being involved with the organisation.
An even more exciting announcement is that our Managing Director at Red Monkey Play, Simon Winfield, has been appointed as Chairman of the Early Years Special Interest Group, and has therefore subsequently joined the BESA National Executive Committee.
“Being a member of BESA has worked wonders for us here at Red Monkey Play during the last year and being appointed to the Executive Council was a proud moment for myself with such a reputable organisation,” Simon explains. “It has given us the chance to meet and interact with other members, and their support and friendship has been a real revelation. BESA really reflects our beliefs at Red Monkey Play and the ethos of our business whilst also being an organisation with a great reputation that works tirelessly for its members.”
Simon is grateful for collaborative opportunities that we have been able to work on with other BESA members, and hopes that they can continue sharing their respective experiences in order to support one another. These opportunities have already produced significant results and Simon believes this will continue in the future.
“I felt it was very important for us at Red Monkey Play to become actively involved in BESA’s activities straightaway,” Simon added. “From being actively involved, we’ve been able to learn from other members as well as bring our own experiences to the table and this has created a really strong sense of community and collaboration which I’m proud to be a part of as a Council member.”
BESA is the leading UK trade body for Educational Suppliers and has a strong reputation within education and government. The organisation has a strong Code of Practice which our team strives to believe in and is committed to, ensuring that customers are at the centre of everything the company does. Simon feels that as a supplier of equipment to primary schools, it is important for the team to support the organisation. By being appointed to the Executive Council, Simon feels we can be at the forefront of delivering excellence throughout the entire education sector.
