My old workplace, EDB ErgoGroup (actually just ErgoGroup at the time) re-branded itself Saturday night, following last year’s merger, to Evry – a deliberate misspelling of “Every”, for reasons lost on yours truly. But I’m confident we’ll get used to it, especially with such a talented brand management, responsible for the above multimedia show. Looking at it now, I kind of envy my old marketing crew, but find that I simply have to salute them on a job well done. Indeed, very well done. You don’t get to see this kind of breathtaking footage every day. Congrats, Dag (and whom ever is left of you guys)!
Man, did that take me back… OK, so I had to rummage the old files, revealing a number of eight or nine-year-old shots of the old joint ErgoGroup marketing crew. We were but a few, consisting of the marketing managers from various ErgoGroup companies. Here’s someone, whose back I simply do not recall, gesturing wildly at an attentive audience (among whom far left Dag Heim, the current Evry brand manager, ErgoSolutions at the time, Tore Sorknes, ErgoEphorma, me, ErgoBluegarden — latter day Bluegarden, and the marketing manager of some subsidiary, which name escapes me – ErgoDialog?):
Which is not to say that I was all ears – all of the time:
In all fairness I should add that all we said was utter rubbish, in honour of present photographer. But I have to admit now, working on my own on a practically desert island, that I truly miss the company of competent colleagues and a dynamic, prosperous work environment – going somewhere. Alas, you won’t find that in these parts. Pride and prejudice, perhaps? I should hope not.
Anyway, the company has grown exceedingly over the eight or nine years that have passed since these pictures were taken – some 1800 employees at the time. Now: approximately 10,000, if I’m not mistaken. Hopefully we did something right.
Oh well, bygones.
On a lighter(?) note, though:

Ouch… That’s got to hurt. But it’ll blow over. It usually does.
At any rate: Bon voyage, Evry! Miss you to bits, but I’ll be cheering from my island exile.
