The Week That Was #193… 5 peeks behind the week at Working Word


From producing party political broadcasts to celebrating awards ceremonies, helping parents spot signs of bullying to top tips on show home interiors, we’ve had another busy week creating content and hitting headlines here at Working Word. Here’s five peeks behind our week…


1. Creating Plaid Cymru’s party political broadcast



To launch Plaid Cymru’s election campaign, our film team sat down with their leader Adam Price to hear about his vision for Wales. A fair deal for families, combating crime and taking action on housing are some of the topics that make up their plans to unite the nation and create a greener, and more prosperous country. The advert played last night on BBC, ITV and S4C, with slots on Channel 4 and Channel 5 coming up.


2. Helping parents and carers spot signs of bullying

Children in care are four times as likely to experience bullying, according to the Anti-Bullying Alliance. As part of anti-bullying week, which runs from November 11th – 15th, we produced a letter to editor on behalf of Five Rivers Child Care, sharing some advice on how to spot that a child is being bullied, outlining some tips that could help parents and carers recognise the warning signs. We secured coverage of the letter in a number of regional titles, including The Northern Echo, Leicester Mercury, Hull Daily Mail, Grimsby Telegraph and Southern Daily Echo.


3. Sharing show home style tips with Waterstone Homes

Waterstone Homes has just opened a stunning new show home in Killay, Swansea to mark the launch of its latest development in the up-market suburb. After arranging an exclusive launch night, inviting press and influencers to take a sneak peek around the property, we’ve also been busy working on an exclusive feature for Wales Online and the Western Mail. We spoke with Waterstone Homes’ interior design team at Sunrise Interiors to share their top tips on how readers can create a show house look in their own home. You can check out the piece here.


4. Celebrating the CIPD Wales Awards

We’re looking forward to celebrating the CIPD Wales Awards at City Hall tonight. After months of planning and managing the event, the awards, which recognise excellent standards in HR and people development across Wales, are finally here. The ceremony is being hosted by Carol Vorderman and finalists include Hafod Housing, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Iceland Foods. Good luck to all, we’ll include coverage on the winners in next week’s TWTW.


5. Accountants make multiple additions to the team

Growth continues for Wales’ largest independently owned accountants, UHY Hacker Young, as it welcomes 11 new professionals to support the expansion of the firm’s leading audit, tax and business services teams.

The appointments ensure UHY Hacker Young’s continued ability to provide new and longstanding clients with the industry leading services they expect, while also allowing the practice to further its work to support the development of the next generation of talent entering the industry. Find out more about the new additions to the team, here.
