A Month To November…
As Christmas draws ever closer, our weeks become busier and busier prepping for the holidays, sales and new year releases. But no matter how busy we get the fun doesn’t stop! Especially when festive foods are introduced to shop shelves and menus…
You almost lost me on a wild foodie tangent then, but I’ve come back down to earth with the help of a single pig-in-blanket.
So, here’s a roundup of November (2019) at Liberty.
#1 Wales’ New Digital Marketing Ambassador for Wales is Our Very Own MD!
Gareth, Managing Director of Liberty, has been announced as the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s new Digital Ambassador for Wales. Fancy, huh?
As the Digital Ambassador on the Board of CIM Wales, Gareth’s mission is to highlight the importance of digital skills in Wales and help marketers in Wales use digital better as a channel. Working to overcome the skills shortage in the country and put Wales at the forefront of innovative digital practices.
Watch this space!
#2 The Digital Ambassador’s First Task: Organise A CIM Digital Marketing Masterclass
CIM Wales has run a series of Masterclasses throughout the year previously including search, social media, analytics, branding and content marketing. Gareth was tasked with sourcing the best digital gurus to present talks on a variety of digital topics which included digital strategy, search, social, CRM, web/UX, analytics and future trends within the digital sphere.
With seven speakers secured including the likes of Google the event was quickly a sell-out and a highly successful day.
Shortly to be followed by an event round-up which we will share here.
#3 ‘Pitches Be Crazy’ Proves To Be a Hit
A blog put together by Gareth and the Senior Management Team (SMT) on their experiences of pitches has been widely successful.
The funny piece shares some unbelievable pitching experiences that have seen our team gathered in a canteen delivering the proposal, crammed into a shoebox-size room, another time they were without a projector or screen to deliver the pitch… The list goes on. But it continues on to share insightful hints and tips to arrange pitches that benefit both the pitcher and the pitched.
It’s been branded controversial. But if we can help businesses in all aspects of their digital marketing – sourcing the right digital partner included – then we’ve done our job.
#4 We Had an Office Interior Update
Since spreading across two floors, we’ve acquired a few blank white walls that are desperate to be dressed. Thankfully, this month we did just that to a couple of different corners.
Admiral Ben now graces the SMT’s end of the office, overlooking the group of seniors and Gareth himself. We’ve been told that we are to salute him as we approach the desks, but between you and me – I don’t see that lasting!
In other spaces of the office, our company values are proudly being displayed. It helps to digest these regularly to keep the teams united in what we’re trying to achieve. They help to prioritise tasks, remind us of appropriate office behaviours and keep us focused.
The way they’re designed also helps (If I do say so myself!).
