US filming with veterinarian who wins Global Welfare Award

Good Call Media filmed at Texas A&M University in the USA to record the success of Dr. Jimmy Tickel who was named as the North American winner of the 2022 World Veterinary Association (WVA) Global Welfare Awards, supported by our client, Ceva Animal Health.

Dr. Tickel received his award at the 37th World Veterinary Association Congress in Abu Dhabi, The United Arab Emirates, hosted on stage by Good Call Media’s co-owner, Nik Wood.

The Global Animal Welfare Award 2021 aims to recognise people and institutions for their dedication and outstanding work, going “above and beyond” to protect and safeguard the welfare of animals and promote the animal welfare concept and approach in their daily lives.

Dr. Tickel is a veterinarian at the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases, IIAD, a part of the Texas A&M University System, and Texas A&M AgriLife Research. He joined IIAD in 2018 as an animal emergency management subject matter resource with expertise in issues related to disease and disaster mitigation, prevention and response on national and international levels.

“Dr. Tickel has been instrumental as a veterinary leader in animal disasters and emergency management throughout his career, caring for both livestock and small animal emergencies,” said Heather Simmons, DVM, director of the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases.

Our Expertise in Construction and Building is Growing

Our growing profile in the construction and building sector has seen us partner with one of the UK’s fastest growing construction companies in a major recruitment project tied in with the release of their dynamic new microsite promoting their expansion.

Women in construction and housebuilding feature prominently in the video campaign

Yorkshire-based Stonebridge Homes is planning to open new offices in the UK and needs to attract high quality employees in every aspect of home building and construction so they came to Good Call Media for

Major expansion planned by Stonebridge

support with the expansion programme.

We undertook a detailed planning process with the company and prepared existing team members for a series of case study interviews highlighting their individual roles and the profile of the teams they work with as well as the unique characteristics of working with Stonebridge. We also featured

aspects of the social scene at the company and filmed on several of their prestigious sites in Harrogate and Menston in Yorkshire. We used our camera drone to support the filming and edited a whole series of

video ‘thumbnails’ highlighting the different roles that will need to be filled in the future. These all feature on the special careers microsite that has been built by Stonebridge, attached to their main website.

The videos also have a strong emphasis on women who work in building and construction and the videos highlight interviews with women who help to lead the way with Stonebridge’s growing business.

Research has shown that video is a potent tool for companies who are looking to attract new employees as potential recruits view video content for far longer than casual visitors to websites. Video is also a key tool in highlighting the culture and values of organisations and the Stonebridge project featured the company’s strong values throughout.

Following on from the success of the initial video project, Stonebridge has appointed Good Call Media for a new series of filming projects to develop the microsite and also to create content that will show an overview of the Stonebridge ethos.

Good Call Media co-owner, Fiona Molloy, who is Good Call Media’s lead on the project said: “Our connections with the vibrant construction industry in the Yorkshire region stems from our involvement with the Yorkshire Property Awards over several years. Stonebridge saw our work in this area and it has been great to partner with a company that has such high standards, strong values and a fantastic story to tell about plans for expansion in the future.”

Watch out for the new Stonebridge video content coming soon!

Good Call Media’s, Nik Wood hosts the Awards in Abu Dhabi, UAE

Dr. Vijitha Perera was given the honour in the prestigious awards that were presented live at the WVA’s 37th Annual Congress in Abu Dhabi, UAE, hosted on stage by Good Call Media’s co-owner, Nik Wood.

“Prior to the Awards, Covid restrictions meant we could not travel to Sri Lanka to interview Dr. Perera,” said Nik. “We were very keen to have a video record of his amazing work with wildlife, so we were able to give him some simple tips and advice on shooting video footage with his camera and on smart phones…the results were truly incredible.”

Dr Perera works as a wildlife veterinarian at the Department of Wildlife Conservation in Sri Lanka. Operati
with a dedicated team, he deals with all types of animals from endangered pangolins, to wild cats and elephants that are injured in the wild or areas of conflict.

He is an awardwinning author on animal welfare subjects and spends much of his time educating adults and children about the value of animal welfare in Sri Lanka’s rich population of wildlife.
