As we bid farewell to 2023, it’s the perfect moment to look back on our accomplishments and milestones at Qlic.
The Qlic team has not only met but exceeded many of our set targets this year, further solidifying our commitment to excellence. In addition, we’ve had the privilege to collaborate with numerous new businesses and charities, expanding our reach and impact.
We have been more active than ever in industry events, both attending and sponsoring, enabling us to connect with our community in meaningful ways.
Read on to discover all we’ve achieved as a team in 2023…
Engaging Events & Collaborations
We’ve significantly ramped up our participation in charity events in the past year. We’re proud to have been part of 15 in-person and online events, each providing unique opportunities for connection, learning, and growth.
A highlight of our year was hosting a webinar in collaboration with Microsoft, titled “Levelling Up with Microsoft 365”. The event saw the highest-ever sign-up rate, reflecting the interest and need for effective digital solutions within the non-profit sector.
We celebrated the 4th year of our annual Charity IT Day. This event continues to be a cornerstone of our calendar, embodying our commitment to supporting charities through technology. Each year, Charity IT Day brings together industry professionals and charitable organisations, fostering dialogue and collaboration for the betterment of the sector.
Exciting New Partnerships
This year, we’re thrilled to announce our new partnerships with Microsoft TSI and ACEVO.
Our collaboration with Microsoft TSI has been particularly exciting. This partnership not only enhances our service offerings but also aligns perfectly with our mission to empower our clients through technology.
In addition, we’ve joined forces with ACEVO, a leading organisation dedicated to supporting and connecting charity and social leaders. Next year, we’ll be attending our first ever in-person event with ACEVO in March, ACEVO Fest.
Making a Difference
This year we completed several charity challenges that brought our team together and allowed us to give back to our community. We’re thrilled to announce that through these initiatives, we managed to raise over £2,000 for charity!
At Qlic we’re all about giving back, and this year has been no exception. We completed a 15,000ft skydive, rolled up our sleeves to give a charity space a fresh new look ready for re-opening, made some personal sacrifices to raise money, and even put together a Christmas Donation! All donations went to The Maypole Project, Dramatize and Morecambe Bay.
We are immensely proud of our team’s dedication and effort throughout these challenges. Their enthusiasm not only contributed to our fundraising success but also helped foster a stronger, more connected team.

2023 was a blast at Qlic IT, thanks to our lineup of exciting team events. We dove into the year with a life-sized Monopoly game – a unique twist on team building! We attended a Summer Festival offering a mix of music, food, and fun. A day trip to Thorpe Park brought thrills for everyone, and to round up the year, we threw an end-of-year party to celebrate our achievements!
A Year of Milestones
Reflecting on the past year, several standout moments and achievements come to mind.
