Golley’s week that was #11

From meeting up with the Money Monster again to some great news on the awards front, here’s what we’ve been up to this week…

Getting our glad rags on 

This week we got some great news from The Drum!

On Wednesday we found out we’d been shortlisted as a finalist in the Drum Recommends Awards in seven out of nine categories!

Each year The Drum download ratings from their database to identify which agencies are the highest-rated by clients, and recognise those agencies via The Drum Recommends Awards.

These awards are one of a kind in the industry. With no entries to submit and no papers to write, winning can only be achieved through the high regard of clients, demonstrated with ratings on recommendedagencies.com. 

The awards night is on May 9 in London and we’re up against some fierce competition but we’re absolutely thrilled to be nominated!

The categories we’re nominated for are:

  • Client Service
  • Effectiveness
  • Service Delivery
  • Direct Marketing
  • Creativity/Innovation
  • Strategic Thinking
  • Advertising

The Money Monster is back!

We’ve given our own Frankenstein’s Monster a reboot this week.

That’s right, Money Monster is back to terrorise more students with money worries. Only this time it’s not just young undergraduates that feel the wrath of his comic timing.

Filming for Student Finance took place this week with the original production company, Storm & Shelter, and you can expect to see him on screen in May.

All things digital at this week’s Social Short

On Wednesday night, we were lucky enough to welcome Abby Dickinson, the Digital Innovator at Office of the Future Generations Commissioner, to speak at the latest CIPR Social Short.

She gave a presentation on how best to align PR and social media campaigns for the future generations, and took our questions on how to utilise digital innovation in upcoming campaigns. She talked us through the latest developments in digital marketing, from apps to VR and VI.

The event was attended by CIPR members from the private and public sector, and it was a great evening talking all things digital.

We got into Oxford!

Our creative comms team headed to Oxford University to film the latest cohort of Seren Foundation students who were experiencing a taste of university life. The Seren programme aims to boost the confidence of Welsh youngsters and help the brightest students into higher education.

The focus of this residential trip was for year 9 pupils interested in languages to learn more about careers in linguistics and experience a world class university.
