Golley’s week that was #30

We took part in the UK wide ‘Advertising unlocked day 2018’

We’ve been hosting Stanwell School for the IPA’s Advertising Unlocked today! We’ve been speaking to them about the advertising industry and all its different roles, as well as welcoming 3 people from Orchard Media and Jane Cook (A.K.A Hungry City Hippy) who were kind enough to chat to the students about their experiences in the industry. Then we finished off the day with the students doing their own advertising task, which we were really impressed with! We hope they’ve had as much fun as we have.

Thanks so much to the IPA, Orchard and Jane for helping out!

Our creative comms team headed to Bristol for the annual IPA event

This week we headed to Bristol to the IPA’S Annual Event, which featured a talk by Richard Shotton on behavioural science and his recent award-winning book ‘The Choice Factory’. We really enjoyed learning about the work he’s done, and even though we already try to use behavioural science in our work, it has inspired to think about how we can use it even more in our campaigns. We were given a copy of his book so that’s top of our reading list now. On top of this, we met different people working in the industry in the South West area which was really nice!

We celebrated the creative industry in Cardiff

We popped along to the ‘Clwstwr Creadigol Celebration’ in Cornerstone to celebrate their successful bid and to ‘raise a glass to the screen industries and to the next five years of building an innovation cluster in South Wales.’ As the first corporate sponsor of Creative Cardiff, it was great to meet more people in the Welsh creative industry and support such a worthwhile initiative.

Jam Jar Communcations delivered a delicious Social Short

For this social short we welcomed Lyndsey Jenkins, managing director of Jam Jar Comms, into Golleys to deliver a talk on her award winning PRide award winning campaign ‘#JoinCwmTaf’.

Jamjar PR worked with Cwm Taf University Health board to deliver an innovative recruitment campaign with a strapline that centred on the letter C – ‘C is for….Cwm Taf UHB. Care to join us?’

Lyndsey shared information on how they used a digital-first strategy which transformed an archaic recruitment process into an innovative and effective new approach which saved taxpayers’ money and addressed the health board’s staffing crisis with several key appointments.
