THE OFFICIAL 2017 CALENDAR CHART CAN NOW BE REVEALED…

The Official Calendar chart presented by Danilo is always a reflection of who is in and who is out and what is trending…

In recent years the No 1 spot has been dominated by 1 Direction, Cheryl, Frozen, Minions etc. but for 2017 its Football’s year to shine and Mourinho will not be happy when he finds out that Liverpool have pinched the Number 1 spot and made history, with over 3% more sales than the runner up Manchester United

This is the first time that 2 Sport Calendars have taken the No 1 & 2 spots in Danilo’s 38 year sales history!

From Numbers 20 to 11 in the Chart are:

20) Despicable Me

AN INTERVIEW WITH…AMY ROWLEY

As our way of helping you, our lovely followers, get to know the Danilo Team a bit better, we have been posting fun interviews with one of our fab employees.

This time, we’ve selected our newest addition to the Danilo Team…Amy Rowley who has recently joined us as our new Sales Office Manager, to be put under the spotlight.

New member of the Danilo Team Amy

New member of the Danilo Team Amy

So we asked Amy:

  1. What was your previous job to Danilo?

My previous and most recent job was a Personnel and Training team leader with Asda, I enjoyed the people aspect of the job and gained a great deal of useful experience.

  1. Who would play you in a film of your life?

In a movie of my life I would love to be played by Cameron Diaz, she’s a strong, funny character and actress and I’m sure she could pull off an excellent British accent! (Flattering myself massively here…ha-ha!)

  1. What do you consider your greatest achievement to date

Not sure of greatest but most recent would be passing my driving test and getting on the road after great perseverance and a lot of time and effort put in. To me it was a big deal and something I really wanted to do for myself!

     4. What 3 words would friends / family / colleagues use to describe you?

Certain, Understanding, Sunny

  1. What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

‘Train your mind to see the positive in every situation.’ From a work colleague who became my friend, she helped me understand the power of positive thinking and how it benefits you and those around you 🙂
