On Wednesday we ran a workshop for Ffilm Cymru, an organisation that supports the Welsh film industry, to learn more about them as an organisation and what they do, in order to uncover their brand purpose and how we can bring this to life. It was a really fun and informative day, talking about all the interesting and inspiring work they do – we’re excited for what’s to come!
We’d like to say a big hello and give a warm welcome to Gweirydd Davies, who joins as head of Welsh content.
Originally from Carmarthen, he’s been living in Cardiff for nearly 10 years primarily working with S4C and Welsh for Adults. He has also worked with numerous businesses around the capital and founded the e-commerce website ‘Y Stryd Fach’. Gweirydd will be our go-to guy and we look forward to him being part of our team.
Hugh James has partnered with the Samye Foundation Wales to offer mindfulness training, exclusively for social housing staff across Wales.
A world-renowned mindfulness expert, Gelong Thubten, a Tibetan Buddhist monk who teaches meditation and has worked with international companies including Google, Lloyds Bank, Facebook, HSBC, McCain and Morrisons delivered the talk on how stealing tiny moments in each day can alleviate stress and provide a calmer working environment.
Our creative communications team attended the day to capture some of the top tips that Gelong gave to the audience.
Pleased to be working with housing association staff in Cardiff tomorrow, addressing the high levels of stress and pressure in the workplace #meditationatwork #mindfulness #stress https://t.co/CjflAtLyay

Over the past month our creative communication team have been visiting a number of people who have benefitted from the Parents, Childcare and Employment (PaCE) programme.
The programme targets parents who face childcare barriers which prevent them accessing education, employment or training opportunities.
We’ve been helping the Welsh Government shout about the amazing work the people on the programme are doing. This includes meeting a solo parenting mum who has now set up her own business and a firefighter mum whose new job has had the seal of approval from her young son.
Keep your eyes peeled on social to see the videos.
We’re really excited about the ad campaign we’ve got coming down the track for our newest client, Transport for Wales Rail Services. Breaking on 15th October, the out-of-home, digital, radio and print campaign will announce Transport for Wales Rail Services as the new train operator across Wales and the borders.
