August – the month where the office is filled with envy to all those that have taken a summer holiday, the month of the Dele Alli challenge (which 90% of the agency failed at), and the month where we made best friends with innocent because they sent us some non-dairy milk alternatives to try (it’s the little things).
But what else has been happening in August? On to the work…
We kicked off the month with some promotions! Congratulations to Zara who has been promoted to Account Director, Penny & Eleanor who are now Account Managers and Sarah, who is now our Senior Social Media Account Manager. All extremely well deserved and we’re so proud to have them in our team.
Our Content Team has been keeping the wheels turning for client Manheim, with an auction visit as well as a social media workshop for senior members of the business. The workshop is part of a wider brand advocacy plan we’re working on with the brand for the remainder of this year, and into 2019.
August also saw two fantastic Training Tuesday sessions for the agency – The Toolbox of a Great Presenter with our very own Matt Guest (Director of On Trade Experience) as well as Status Reports Made Easy with Operations Director, Ellen, and Strategy Director, Jacqui.
Wellness Wednesday was hosted by Jacqui this month and was a powerful and insightful session on powerful coping mechanisms for handling stress, anxiety and other related issues. We’ve got some extremely exciting and valuable Wellness Wednesday plans lined up for the rest of the year, and our superstar designer Dan has created this masterpiece chalkboard art to promote them.
Account Director, Zara, and Claire and Beth from our Content Team attended J’AIME Magazines first birthday party with client Cookes Furniture, and the social team also worked on the second piece of video content for the client to promote their summer sale.
Client Services (and receptionist, Jayne) were also kept busy this month as we had lots of agency visitors! Geberit, Diageo Bar Academy and Tarmac Blue Circle all visited the agency to discuss 2019 plans and some exciting campaigns which we will hopefully be able to reveal soon.
Finally, we welcomed two new recruits to the agency! Henry joins as an Account Director for client Shell and will be working on a wide range of UK and global Shell projects. Oliver also joined our Shell team in Germany as Product Manager.
