Our regular round-up of what’s been going on in the Golley Slater Cardiff office over the last seven days.
#1 We picked up another new client – sort of!
We’ve been working on the branding, advertising and media for HealthWise Wales for quite some time, but after a competitive pitch, we were this week awarded the contract to work on the PR for the campaign too, making them a fully integrated client moving forwards. HealthWise Wales allows people across the country to register online or by phone to take part in research and fill in questionnaires which will help the NHS in Wales plan for the healthcare challenges of the future. Watch this space for more to come.

#2 We had another busy week with our education clients
A major education summit for client The Seren Network brought together 800 of Wales’ brightest pupils and 30 of the UK’s top universities, with the mission to inspire them to aim high. At the event, Welsh Government minister Alun Davies announced a new collaboration between Seren and Oxford University’s Jesus College, which will see Welsh students given the opportunity to take part in a four-day summer school at the world-leading university. The supporting PR story was covered by outlets including BBC Wales Today, ITV Wales, Wales Online, the Oxford Times and BBC Oxford.

# 3 We joined Creative Cardiff’s ideas session on ‘Creating Cardiff’
What stories should we tell about our city? What should our city be synonymous with? This week’s ideas session at CAVC – hosted by Creative Cardiff – brought together creatives from all over the city to debate and brainstorm over the best way to tell our city’s stories and share its unique identity with the world. If you work in the creative industry in Cardiff, make sure you’re signed up to www.creativecardiff.org.uk for a chance to register to take part in their next free event.

#4 We got very excited about Dusty Knuckle’s new lazy Sunday club
We’ve worked with the guys from Dusty Knuckle Pizza on a project basis for the last couple of years, most recently helping them raise awareness of their pizza pilgrimage to Naples which helped them raise funds for the national charity Slow Food UK. This week, we all got very excited when they sent us an email announcing that they will be open from 9am – 3pm every Sunday from now on, serving brunch and strong coffee to the hungover people of Canton. If you ever need to get hold of us on a Sunday morning, now you know where to find us!
