It began with an idea,

An idea worth changing continents for,

An idea that would birth many partnerships and unite people of many diversities,


It began with an idea.

This idea birthed many firsts,

First recruitment, first partnership, first project, first award,

And though it did bring such great firsts,

Along, with it, came first difficulties.


But we forged on,

For we had laid a strong foundation.

And on this foundation, strong processes and atop that, stronger people.

And every brick we built, we built with grace. His grace.


So when the wolf of low oil prices huffed, we stood.

When the wolf of the pandemic puffed, we stood.

Ours is the house that stood and will yet stand.

20 years today, 20 more from now. We’ll stand.


With our resilience and determination.

With our people and our processes, we will evolve and we will grow.

Ours is a tale truly worth being told, for we are built for continuity.

We are the house that stood

Happy 20th Anniversary.
