Golley’s week that was #28

It was a chilly morning for this month’s Rise and Shine

At this month’s rise and shine we headed to Big Moose Coffee to hear from Golley friend, Caitlin Allen who talked about ‘PR lessons from the publishing industry – working with the national newspaper supplements.”

It was an interesting and insightful session from Caitlin who shared her tips, tricks and practical advice about achieving the best for her clients. We looked at the authors that she had recently worked with, including Yuval Noah Harari, author of who wrote 21 lessons for the 21st century and Tara Westover who wrote Educated. Caitlin showcased how she made the most of the assets available to gain the best coverage for her client, which included coverage in Wired and The Observer.

Our top take-aways? Looks matter, images sell, meet face-to-face where possible and be bold!

Our Creative Comms team spent some time filming at the Celtic Manor

Did you know that within the next five years, 1 in 3 people of working age will be over 50?

Our Older workers campaign ‘No Best Before Date’ aims to raise awareness of this fact and encourages more employers to recognise the importance of retraining, retaining and recruiting older workers.

It’s the latest initiative under the Welsh Government’s Age of Investment drive to ensure Wales has the skills it needs to compete in the global marketplace, both now and in the future.

This was the main focus of the talk delivered by  Welsh Government’s Minister for Lifelong Learning, Eluned Morgan at this month’s M4 Business Network event. The minister was passionate about this topic and has actively been involved in meeting local business who adopt these values and retain an older work force to see first-hand how effective it is.


We’ve also been out filming the heroes who will feature in new content for client Organ Donation

You may have already heard the incredible story of transplant surgeon Mike Stephens, , or maybe the heart-breaking story about Nadine Marshall’s 18-year-old son who was brutally murdered in case of mistaken identity.

What’s important about these two stories is how they champion the current campaigns message to #TalkAboutOrganDonation.

We want this message to reach as far and wide as possible so that everyone can have that important talk and let their loved ones know their decision.  The case studies highlight just how crucial this is and bring that message to life across social media.  Keep your eyes peeled on Organ Donation Wales’ Twitter channels and Facebook for more.

And here’s the Golley’s gossip…

We just wanted to say a huge congratulations to new Mum Anna Harrt!
