To America And Back: Our November News Digest

No Image Found

It’s safe to say that it’s been an eventful month all round. Despite the hubbub surrounding recent news, businesses have been marching on in a bid to wrap up those outstanding projects and tasks before Christmas.

Our copywriting agency has been no different; from roundtables with the US Cabinet to glamorous events in Manchester, we’ve certainly been keeping busy this November.

Got a few minutes to catch up? Here’s a quick digest of what our copywriters have been up to:

Roundtable discussions with the US

Our Director, Kelly Gilmour-Grassam, had the honour of meeting the US Small Business Administrator, Maria Contreras-Sweet, earlier this month. She joined a roundtable of female entrepreneurs to learn about the progress the US is making in supporting women in business.

It was inspiring to hear about some of the initiatives in place over the pond, and discuss how small businesses on both sides of the Atlantic can work together to strengthen trade bonds!

Encouraging women in enterprise

Creating equal opportunities in business is a particularly hot topic at the moment. We’re proud to be leading the conversation as a member of the FSB’s Women In Enterprise Taskforce.

You can discover what we’re doing to address the gender gap by watching an explanatory Taskforce video over at the FSB’s website. Watch this space for Manchester events coming to the region in 2017…

Celebrating Manchester business

Awards season is underway, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the FSB Greater Manchester Awards and Manchester Young Talent Awards this month. We didn’t clinch the top spot on this occasion, but congratulations to Mustard PR, Latitude Digital Marketing and Heather Gray of Avensure, winners of our categories!

Christmas opening hours 

As the countdown to Christmas begins, we’re starting to feel very festive in our office. While we have lots of interesting projects sliding into view over the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a short break this season to refill our creative juices.

We will be available until Friday 23rd December, returning on Tuesday 3rd January ready and raring to see what 2017 has in store for our clients. Got a project that needs ticking off before Christmas? Let us know as soon as possible!

The next few weeks are shaping up to be full of excitement as we prepare for the Talk Of Manchester Awards, MBBC Christmas Jumper Day and lots of last-minute assignments in the run-up to the festive break.
