What Father's Day means at Turnbull

Posted 19.06.20  - Culture

For Father's Day, the Turnbull team have spent the week reminiscing, rummaging through old photo albums, and reflecting on the beloved father figures in our lives. We are taking time this Father's Day to think of all the people who have played a parental role, guiding us through the world and teaching us those crucial life lessons. In this blog, we share the team's favourite images and memories, cherished photos and handed down words of wisdom.

Dad has always talked fondly of his years at University and time abroad in the Solomon Islands. He has taught me a love of travel, culture… and camping. I still turn to him for advice, which he always makes time to give.

- Becky French, Creative Director

My son fills my heart with joy, my niece, nephew and goddaughter all hold a collective space in my heart as they are the world to me, I treasure every instant we spend together, it’s a blessing to have them in my life, it’s something I enjoy and look forward to doing.

- Raymond Rodriguez, Supervisor of Operations and Facility

Incredibly proud that these two call me Daddy. Harris is 3 1/2 and Etta is 1 1/2. They teach me something about life and myself every single day. I am hoping that is working both ways!

- Jonathan Baker, Managing Director

My Dad lived life – quite literally – in the fast lane, but he also taught me to embrace the slower pace of nature and to appreciate life amongst it. This has remained strong within me, and something for which I’ll be forever grateful. I still love nothing more than a walk along the coast with Dad whenever I get the chance to visit.

- Oli Culcheth, Head of Marketing & Communications

I, unfortunately, didn't have a relationship with my Father. I did, however, have one with the greatest Grandfather a boy could wish for. He was a Doctor and worked in a number of different countries all over the world. This resulted in me have a mum born in Jamaica and me myself grew up, in Sri Lanka and the South of France. This picture was taken at my grandparents' house in France, le Pierre St Jacques. Word has it I was told to push him in the pool as someone took a picture. He was a pretty big guy and I don't remember lifting too many weights back then...

- James Webb, Bespoke Associate


Everything good in me I acquired from him; I appreciate everything that he has done for me. My father has always been the person who guided and helped me face my fears. He taught, that sometimes even failures can lead you to success. I can never find the words to express my feelings of gratitude for him or now even be able to tell him how much he was truly loved.

- Sarah McQuiggan, Executive Office

What I love most about my Dad is his sense of humour, he is always upbeat & positive, and I try to have this same attitude to life. I feel very lucky to call him both my Dad and a great friend.

- Laura Murphy, CRM Manager 

My Dad has the sunniest disposition, he is constantly upbeat and with a smile on his face. His outlook on life is one I always to replicate. The only time we don't see eye to eye is when we're deciding who, of the two of us, has grown the tallest sweet peas.
