The Week That Was #134... 5 peeks behind the week at Working Word
From celebrating Principality’s #1 ranking to letting the dogs out, it’s been a busy week at Working Word HQ. Here’s five peeks behind our week.
1. Celebrating Principality rising to the top of mortgage lenders for customer satisfaction
Our client Principality Building Society has been celebrating some superb news this week, as it was announced it has been named the UK’s best mortgage provider for customer satisfaction in a survey by Which? The survey of 3500 mortgage customers found that nearly all (97%) of Principality customers were satisfied with their mortgage. We shared the news with key mortgage trade titles and Welsh newspapers. Read FT Adviser’s report on the survey here.
2. Pitch perfect start for our brand new client
Music HQ, a start-up specialising in booking live music for corporate events, has spent the last year creating and mentoring bands to perform for some of the world’s biggest companies. The musicians on its books have worked with megastars like Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart and Stereophonics. They’ve pumped out tunes for clients like Google and Samsung in places as far as Abu Dhabi and South Korea. All in, it’s been a spectacular year for our brand new client, and we’ve been hitting business title headlines with stories of their success. Read all about it in the Global Banking and Finance Review and BQ.
3. Showcasing Dogs’ Day Out 2018
This Sunday, our client Burns Pet Nutrition is hosting its very own Dogs’ Day Out at Pembrey Country Park , welcoming dog lovers and their four-legged companions to enjoy a day out dedicated to man’s best friend. With all sorts of doggy entertainment from fun dog shows to canine displays and lots of games, it’s set to be a great day for the family, and proceeds raised will be going to charity.
We’ve been hard at work getting the word out, securing coverage in this week’s Carmarthen Herald and Llanelli Herald as well as on Wales 247.
4. Talking all things food and drink with the voice of Wales’ food and drink industry
Whether we’re talking about it, learning about it, or just eating it, we at Working Word love food. And we got to do all this and more with the Food and Drink Wales Industry Board when we attended their quarterly board meeting and evening event with industry experts. Highlights included sampling the wonderful treats at The Marram Grass restaurant and learning about the Wales Food and Drink Industry Board aims and vision for the future as they celebrate three years of delivery. We’ll keep you posted with all things food and drink over the next six months as we continue to work with the board.
5. Breakfast and Brexit
In the world of PR late nights and early mornings are par for the course, but we don’t mind the early start when it means travelling to the Celtic Manor Resort to join the M4 Business Network Breakfast event.
As an event sponsor we’ve welcomed speakers from the world of sport, journalism, politics, the list goes on. But, as the country deliberates the scenarios of a no-deal exit from the EU, this week the M4 meeting meant business. And our guest speaker was happy to oblige.
Addressing over 160 representatives from Wales leading businesses and organisations, Eluned Morgan, Baroness Morgan of Ely and the Minister for Welsh Language and Lifelong Learning, discussed how Welsh Government and businesses can work in partnership to navigate though “this pivotal time in our nations history”.
Our M.D Dan received another glowing review for his sophomore novel The Offline Project this week, this time in the Western Mail. The paper’s Jenny White praised its “cracking dialogue” and “rounded, believable characters portrayed with warmth”.
The Offline Project is available here.
