Golley’s week that was #7

From getting dressed up to celebrate Welsh Businesses to watching the next generation become inspired by them, here’s what we’ve been up to this week…

Inspiring the next generation…

Our creative comms team headed to Llanelli this week to find out what was on offer at Wales’ largest careers, jobs, skills and apprenticeship event. SkillsCymru Carmarthenshire is aimed at pupils and students in Years 10 – 13 as well as their parents and teachers. The event invites a variety of companies and organisations to inspire and motivate attendees face-to-face and inform them about careers they may have never considered. Our team were there across the two days, to source content and soundbites from the event, highlighting how beneficial the event is.

Golleys, you shall go to the ball!

We were at the Welsh Business Awards this week, courtesy of the award sponsors Heart South Wales. The Welsh Secretary told the audience that with nearly 6000 Welsh businesses taking on the international market, the future of the Welsh economy is bright. Such a special celebration of Welsh talent, enterprise and innovation. Congratulations to all the winners of the evening! #SWCCAwards

Up and at em’

A few of us went along to the Rise & Shine on Thursday morning, run by the homelessness charity ‘The Wallich’. They spoke to us about their highly successful 2017/18 winter campaign, the background behind it and how they went about setting it up. It was really interesting to hear all about their experiences, particularly what it’s like to run campaigns as a charity and the challenges around delivering social conscious communications. Definitely some lessons to keep in mind when working with our charity and government organisation clients!

The Dragon or The Bulldog…who will it be?

Anticipation has been building in the office this week ahead of the Wales vs England rugby match. The rivalry is real between our Welsh and English offices. We’ll be taking some of our clients along to Principality Stadium to see the boys do their thing tomorrow, branding our best leeks and daffodils. Cymru am byth!
