  • CCK Timeline 2012

    Another people-focused year, when we keep busy putting in place and testing out our "gold standard" internship program, and give young people a head start on their career paths (350 apply).

  • CCK Timeline 2011

    A busy one! We are approved as an "employer of choice" for participation in DWP's Future Jobs Fund and get an official stamp of approval to provide jobs and training to over 20 long-term unemployed.

     

  • CCK Timeline 2009

    cck pr timeline 2009 ccksocialsWe take a well-deserved rest (kind of)! We travel around North America visiting our supplies and developing new collaborations. In the meantime, in London, our customers take over the office and pack orders for our online shop. Under their own steam they also set up CCK meet-ups to keep them going while we are away. 

  • CCK Timeline 2008

    We receive recognition from all quarters, from Business Link to Chicago's Leather Museum, campaign and work with rape charities, and have a busy year all-round. Ironically, it's also when we move out of our first premises, after 5 years in Covent Garden.

  • CCK Timeline 2007

    cck pr timeline 2007 mayoroflondoncck pr timeline 2007 ldaThe Mayor likes us :) As does London Development Agency :) As does Radio 4 :) Out of a sudden - or might it be years of networking and prejudice-busting? - we help develop all sorts of local government programs and debate EU proposals live on air with the CEO of the British Hospitality Association. Not bad for the little kinky us!

  • CCK Timeline 2006

    We stick our neck out and truly test our powers at balancing the kinky and the mainstream with one of the most controversial exhibitions in London in the last decade. All staff get extra NVQs and training ... and never get to use their conflict handling courses as all works out beautifully :)

  • CCK Timeline 2005

    cck pr timeline 2005 thelawyerWcck pr timeline 2005 barbicane collaborate with the Barbican, get a star review from a top restaurant critic and shake things up a bit proving that sexuality and spirituality *can* mix (the Bible comes to live on premises alongside all the kinkiness, thus busting another stereotype).

  • CCK Timeline 2004

    We are pronounced "a trend setter" by The Future Laboratory, a global trends consultancy, start academic collaborations and get a big golden cock (otherwise known as an "Erotic Award for Innovation").

    We open our door! Enough said, really. Spare a thought for the poor innocents not knowing what they are letting themselves into...

    We have no idea how we are going to do what we want to do but make up with (coffee) bags of enthusiasm (and lots of caffeine and sugar to keep us going!)
