Yorkshire Roots

Our co-owner, Nik Wood, is always ready to remind people that he’s a Yorkshireman.

So he’s happy to be on the road in what he refers to as ‘God’s County’ this week as we complete the filming for the 2018 Variety Yorkshire Business Awards.

Betty’s – a Yorkshire icon

And when he heard that he was to visit Betty’s Cafe, a Yorkshire icon, he was even more delighted. The business has been shortlisted in this year’s awards so naturally he insisted that he has to do a ‘piece to camera’ sat at a table full of Yorkshire tea and cakes!

We have already interviewed the judges and sponsors for this year’s event which promises to be another triumph for Variety the Children’s Charity and their fantastic work in Yorkshire. The lunchtime event is the region’s definitive business awards, celebrating the many achievements and undisputed excellence of companies in Yorkshire.

Over the years, it has become a premier fixture in the business calendar, raising more than £3million for sick, disabled and underprivileged children across the region.

The lunch is attended by 450 Yorkshire businessmen and women comprising the top management of all the public companies headquartered in the region as well as most of the region’s professional advisers.

Watch out for our video highlighting the key aspects of this years awards.

XP Power Recruitment Video Goes Live

Our latest project with XP Power is designed to help them recruit the very best people in tight employment markets in the different geographical areas where they operate.

XP Power is a leading international provider of essential power control solutions. Power direct from the electricity grid is unsuitable for the equipment which it supplies. XP Power designs and manufactures power converters – components which convert power into the right form for our individual customers’ needs, allowing their electronic equipment to function.

We have filmed with them in different areas of the globe including Europe and the USA where they have an impressive facility close to San Francisco. XP Power has been increasing the level of its internal communication and we have been helping to support that by recording internal video bulletins.

When a decision was made to be more pro-active in the recruitment market we stepped up to help the campaign by interviewing a variety of people from different departments and making them into the video that you can see above.

Video Trailer for Variety Business Awards

We’ve produced a colourful and dynamic video trailer for the 2018 Variety Yorkshire Business Awards.

We were interviewing the judges and sponsors for this year’s event prior to filming at some of the short-listed companies in the region so we thought we would fashion a trailer for the organiser, Variety the Children’s Charity and this is the result:
