Becka, the business assistant at IKON had a great idea to help those in need this Christmas. We collected food parcels in the office for this great cause – FIND Ipswich, Families in Need (FIND). They offer a lifeline to people in Ipswich and the surrounding areas who are experiencing poverty and despair. We all chipped in and the donations were taken to FIND this afternoon.

What three traits define you? Kindness, empathy and I’m super organised – hopefully people who know me will agree!
What is the one thing you couldn’t live without? That’s too tough to answer!
What is the greatest challenge you have overcome in your life? I guess all of the usual ups and downs of life.
How are you finding working at IKON headquarters in Ipswich? Absolutely loving it! Finding my feet in a new industry has been really interesting and challenging. The team have all been so supportive and helpful.
How did you keep yourself entertained during lockdown? I spent a lot of time chilling out if I’m honest! Sunbathing, walking along a local river, baking – I was definitely a lockdown cliché! I did do some gardening and redecorated my kitchen so it wasn’t completely wasted time.
What is the one thing you cannot resist? One word – chocolate!
Where is your favourite place to be? I count myself as very lucky, I live in a lovely small town called Woodbridge, set on the river Deben. Walking along the river is good for the soul!
If you could do another job, just for one day, what would it be? A surgeon at a top hospital. I find it fascinating watching medical programmes. The anatomy of the human body is astonishing.
What are you listening to/reading/watching these days? I’m a huge football fan so always have footie on the TV.

IKON’s new brand identity was launched at the end of 2019 and is currently being rolled out across the business.
‘We’re delighted at the way that the new brand has been received by those that have seen it so far,’ says Louise Ballard. ‘It has transformed our logo and visual identity into a style that makes us fit for the 21st century.’
The new brand identity was created and is being implemented by Ipswich-based WHAT Associates, a family-owned creative agency currently working for clients as diverse as Coes, University of Suffolk, The Winerack and St Joseph’s College.
Currently, the agency is in the process of preparing a complete website re-launch for IKON featuring the new brand identity.
“When we first met Louise and Jason at IKON training it was to discuss the prospect of working together on their new website.
However, after getting to know more about them and the nature of their training programmes we felt their brand identity was out-of-sync with their great offering and it needed to be updated to reflect their true business objectives and ambitions. This required a much more positive and optimistic approach.
Their new branding, website and design collateral now accurately replicates the attitude, feeling and character of IKON. This has been achieved with commissioned photography of their training sessions, copywriting and applying design consistency across all aspects of their visual communication. We are delighted with the results and have really enjoyed the journey we have been on with the entire IKON training team. “
We listen to our clients
Since introducing the managing challenging behaviour course for clinical staff, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Many, including matrons and senior sisters, say that it is the best training they have done in a long time and that it should be mandatory for clinical staff.
