Making a Difference in the Community

Business author Jeff Haden once said “Success is not only a reward – it’s a responsibility”. At Iceberg, we take pride in helping make a difference.

We encourage our team to make a difference in other people’s lives, when they’re working with clients, colleagues or in the community at large. here are some examples of #TeamIceberg in the community.

David Pearson brought his trebuchet to the CF Squash

November 2017: Iceberg CTO David Pearson brought his homemade trebuchet to the Squash CF event in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. David says: “The trebuchet was busy most of the day shooting pumpkins at the castle. The participants ranged from age 3 to 40 with the majority at the younger end of that spectrum. They would pick out a pumpkin and I would set it up in the trebuchet, then hand them the string attached to the trigger pin. You should have seen their faces when the pumpkin headed down range with tremendous velocity! The softball sized pumpkins would overshoot the target and were going about 250 feet. The larger pumpkins would go shorter distances based on their weight.”

 

Iceberg was thrilled to support and participate in this year's Tillie Sheppard Memorial Golf Tournament, in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. This is the second year for the tournament, organized by the family of Clara Rempel Segal, who was born in October 2015 with cystic fibrosis. The "Tillie" is named for Clara's great-grandmother who died the day after Clara was born. In this photo, Clara's dad Jack stands in the middle with Iceberg's team of Ken McPherson, Fergonn Fernandez, Rob Ryan, and Saki Giannakopoulos.
