It takes many different types of people, businesses and skills to make a community.
We are proud to work with such a diverse base of customers, each doing and offering something different. This makes up the community of Spectulise websites. Our customers include local cycle clubs, individual pottery shops, international retailers and youth groups.
Giving something back
As a part of the real community, Spectulise plays its part. Led by our Managing Director, Simon Corrigan, we give 1000's of hours each year to support youth work in Kent and the UK. In particular with the Scout Association, providing amazing opportunities for young people.
Simon is heavily involved with Scouting at a local, County and National level. In addition time is given to a local school, assisting with residential trips.
"There is a great sense of satisfaction from volunteering and seeing young people achieve from the time and effort you invest."
We also sponsor and support the web presence of a number of organisations across the UK.
Everyday is an adventure, however a few select highlights are below:
22nd World Scout Jamboree
In 2011, Simon led 36 young people from across Kent to the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden where over 40,000 people from across the world gathered. The trip also included a pre-event in Denmark for the 4,000 attending from the UK and 'Home Hospitality' in Finland.
Kent International Jamboree
In 2009 Simon lead the media team for the Kent International Jamboree attended by over 3,000 people. The team kept a Conceptulise website up-to-date with photos, video, news and blogs, wrote and printed a daily magazine, filmed and edited videos and provided all the signage and participant booklets.
The new Scout Handbook was launched following two years of work. The 300 page colour book contains practical advice and ideas for young people looking for adventure. Simon was one of the book's contributors and photographers.
In April 2008 Simon completed an "Explorer Belt Expedition", an urban exploration across Norway in a team with 3 others. The purpose of the Explorer Belt is to find out about another country, its culture and the people living there. During the expedition the team completed a project to discover the differences in the social lives and attitude of those in Norway and the UK.
The 12 day journey also included 10 surprise challenges given just before leaving. These included crewing on a ship and interviewing the captain, broadcasting on Norwegian radio, meeting a local celebrity, learning a song, making a traditional Norwegian delicacy and trying our hand at a Norwegian cottage industry.
More information about the Expedition can be found here.
As part of Scouting's Centenary year, Simon went away camping with a film crew and appeared on BBC's Blue Peter where a studio full of Scouts broke a Guinness World Record for the number of Pancakes simultaneously tossed in one minute.
21st World Scout Jamboree
In 2007, Simon helped lead 36 young people from across Kent to the 21st World Scout Jamboree hosted by the UK. The two week event saw over 40,000 young people from all but 6 Countries and Territories around the world come together to live, work and play together regardless of race, religion or national politics.
"The 21st World Scout Jamboree was the single most amazing experience of my life, living in harmony with people from almost every country around the world in a truly global village."
