Golley’s week that was #15

The sun was shining as we helped Parmer with its launch

We spent a sunny day in the Bay on Wednesday, launching client Parmer Cardiff’s new waterside estate. Parmer is a privately owned Anglo-American real estate investment firm, with a portfolio made up of around three million square feet of office space in the UK and US, including in Austin, Texas.We’re pleased to be working with them to add Parmer Cardiff to this collection. The project includes the improvement and rebranding of seven existing office buildings in Cardiff Bay, including 3 Assembly Square, and two new sites of land for high-spec office space. At the event, guests heard from Cardiff Council Leader Huw Thomas, and Roger Lewis, as well as Ritchie Gardiner from Parmer Cardiff.

We attended the launch of Responsible Business Week In Wales 2018

We’ve been helping to promote a summer school for Welsh students at Oxford

This week, we helped promote the Seren Network’s fully-funded summer school for Welsh students at Oxford University. The network is a Welsh Government initiative aimed at encouraging outstanding students to apply for the best universities in the UK and overseas. Last year, we helped launch its inaugural summer school at Jesus College, Oxford which has now trebled in size to accommodate a total of 75 students from across the Seren regional hubs.

 We helped promote the Welsh language

We helped promote the Welsh language by securing coverage for our client Careers Wales, who hosted an event for primary school children in Wrexham. The event was aimed at highlighting the benefits of being bilingual and the importance of the Welsh language in the workplace. We got broadcast coverage on Radio Cymru and online coverage, see here.

Our creative intern shared his experience of completing a 2 week placement

As I approached the end of my course I had to complete 10 days of work experience in the working world of the media industry. I was very impressed by the Hybrid Mitsubishi ad, evidently one of the company’s proud accomplishments. It showed creativity and a sense of adventure and exploration. I was tasked with creating a new show reel for Golley Slater, I found this quite a daunting task, but unwilling to disappoint and eager to impress I gave my best go. Luke kindly helped me to polish it up and lent me his camera to film some bits around the office to help round the whole thing off.

Although nervous at first, being thrown into the world of work, I soon relaxed in a laid back friendly but productive environment full of smiles and laughter.

I had a fantastic time working there and made the most of absorbing the atmosphere as I could, and I will leave having a completely different perspective on Advertising as a whole.
