Wheredidthetigergo has helped SMEs, voluntary and community groups, charitable organisations, bars and nightclub brands to flourish on the web since 2002. Unlike larger companies, we offer a genuinely personal service - clients always have direct access to the person working on their website.
Based in the village of Hartwell, Northamptonshire, we also provide web design and development services to an IT support company and their customers, mainly large Housing Associations. As well as providing services locally, we have customers throughout the country and work closely with well known designer, writer and speaker Sarah Paramenter to enhance the design element of our services.
Wheredidthetigergo is run by Phil Sorrell – here Phil explains a bit more about himself:
- What did you do before Wheredidthetigergo?
I studied Electronic and Electrical Engineering with Management at university, graduating with a First Class degree, then worked as a full time trustee of a large charitable organisation, responsible for their finance and services.
- What personal web projects do you have?
I built and run my local community website (www.hartwellvillage.com) which gives local community groups and businesses a presence on the internet to publicise their news and events.
I am building an online web application (www.socialhiking.org.uk) helping people on charity challenges to share their progress online.
I also write a blog about exploring and enjoying the British countryside (www.mycountryside.org.uk).
- What do you do when not in front of a computer?
I get out hiking and camping with my dog around Britain – my recent two week charity hike raised money for the MS Society.
- What gives you the most satisfaction?
Getting an email from a happy customer gives me a great buzz. I am also proud that some of our customers have been with us since we set up in 2002 – it is fantastic seeing how far their websites have evolved and how successful they have become.
- Why the name - Wheredidthetigergo?
There are several theories on the origins of the name, which started out as a testing domain. The name soon stuck - it is a good fit with how friendly and approachable we are.
