Technology that for over 25 years has been at the heart of many of the world’s most iconic devices.

A message from CMO David Harold

I wanted to speak to both our customers and employees together, as this is a time when I think we must act as one. COVID-19 continues to spread globally. All of us are impacted, whether we are coping with lockdowns, travel bans, business disruption, or the health of ourselves, colleagues and loved ones.This is an extraordinarily challenging time for the world, and yet for many the focus is on continuing with our lives and businesses as best as we can. At Imagination, we have been addressing the COVID-19 problem for some time, as many of our customers and employees in China have been affected since the early days of the outbreak. Imagination is a business focused on partnership. Our innovations only reach the world because of our partners. We are heartened by the open and supportive nature of those enduring partnerships in these trying times.

While more of our employees are now able to work from our offices, we remain flexible, responding to local changes and prioritising the health of our employees and customers. We continue to interact over conferencing, email, and messaging, having already successfully implemented such strategies with our employees and customers from the outset of the outbreak.

We know that both our employees and customers want to continue to deliver their best during this time. This is the moment when dedication and vision will define which companies will get the job done and come out stronger on the other side. But this situation is not just a moment in time; it will require fortitude, planning and a long-term commitment. Pausing until it passes is not a choice any of us can sanction. Top quality strategy, outstanding and consistent execution as well as innovative technology will matter more than ever going forward.

Over the past few years, Imagination has faced many challenges and we have grown and come out stronger from each. We know that we are highly capable in supporting our customers, and each other, in times of disruption. Our employees in Imagination include people from dozens of nationalities, and many of our offices have already been profoundly affected by this crisis. I’ve been inspired by how our employees have supported each other and risen to the challenge – sending supplies at first, and now guidance and experience. Our diversity underpins our resilience and our innovation, and our commitment to you.

Those of you who have attended our recent events will know that we believe the overall trend of the world has been towards better standards of living, aided by technology. We still firmly believe that and know that together we will pass this test. Please, stay safe and look after your colleagues and loved ones. Do what you do best. We may not be in the same place for a while, but we are all in this together.
