It’s been a very Happy New Year for our business…2016 was our most successful financial year to date after ten years of trading and 2017 looks like being even better with a string of new contracts and more work with our valued, existing clients.
We’ve started the year with work for several new organisations.
We will soon be completing a colourful video highlighting a fantastic corporate social responsibility project in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales organised by Acorn Stairlifts. We came across the company while filming for the Made in the UK Awards, which celebrates the best of UK manufacturing. Since then they have won a series of other awards including the recent Yorkshire Post Business Award for Exports as they sell a huge amount of their goods to the USA.
We’ve also really enjoyed getting involved with the wonderful people and their equally wonderful products at AC Goatham & Son, which is an amazing success story of producing apples and pears in Kent since 1947 and now selling to many of our leading supermarkets. We have been filming to help celebrate their 70th anniversary year so, again, watch out for some beautiful footage of British apples at their best.
We would like to thank The Brookwood Partnership, which has been offering ‘the highest standard of fresh quality food to pupils across all school ages and genders since 1996’. They were one of our very first clients when we started the business as Nik Wood Communications Ltd and they have remained with us ever since.
We supported their annual conference with a series of videos covering everything from their work with freshly prepared food for pupils to their support for charities in the UK and internationally. In 2016 the Partnership announced its merger with leading independent caterer and Royal Warrant holder, CH&Co Group, becoming the group’s specialist education arm. We are delighted to report that Kate Martin and Sue Parfett will continue in their roles as Managing Partners and we congratulate them on being part of an excellent merger agreement.
We are also delighted to continue our close relationship with Ceva Santé Animale the global veterinary health company. This is a truly international partnership where we help them to cover events and company news in over 40 different countries throughout the year. We film for the innovative internal and external station Ceva TV and also appear live on stage at a wide range of events ranging from product launches to debates on the issue of antibiotic resistance around the World.
And this is just a small part of our global business – we will also be working alongside companies like XP Power, helping to publicise their financial results; Variety The Children’s Charity, supporting their events which raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for children in need and Insider Media Limited who stage glittering events for the property and business sectors.
So a big thanks to all our supporters – old and new.
