So my birthday is out of the way (yesterday, thanks), Christmas and New Years are out of the way and it is only now I find myself having the time to look ahead to what 2014 will hold in store for me.
Firstly I would like to thank Tim Elliott of TJ Elliott Ltd and Dominic Corder of The Nottingham Institute for their unwavering help and support through 2013. We have had some very successful collaborations last year and this year promises to be even more exciting!
You can read more about my services here.
There are several projects due to launch 2014 that I have to keep under wraps for now until they are more fully-fledged but so far this year I will be working on:
Komparifest – a festival promotion and information hub where festival-goers can check out what’s going on and owners can promote their events and related services.
The Americana International Festival – as Official Media Partners, Tim and I will be working to secure sponsorship for this massive festival and promoting in every way we can.
The Nottingham Barefoot Walk – we will be looking to build on last year’s successful event to raise even more awareness and much needed funds for our chosen charities.
The Big Purple Factory – Tim and I are looking to work with more brave companies who see the value in stand-out advertising to get people talking about their brands.
Construction Voice Magazine – there may be some changes this year, but the launch in October was fantastically well received and 2014 should see us build our readership levels even further.
Donkeywork – the advertising agency’s agency. This is an agency set up to look after out-sourced, white-label work for those agencies who need to free up some of their time to spend in more productive areas. Let us do the ‘Donkeywork’ for you! This venture has a real ‘feel-good’ factor to it because we have decided that 10% of all profits will go to The Donkey Sanctuary to help them continue their great work.
The Nottingham Institute – I shall continue as head of niWord and head of niEvents as The Nottingham Institute ‘concept’ is becoming more and more accepted throughout the city and the network grows ever more influential. It was a hard launch at first but people seem to be finally accepting that by working together – we can achieve more.
I am also continuing my own writing projects wherever possible, including an epic fantasy series and a mythological graphic novel. More about those as and when they develop.
Lastly, one more big thank-you to my partner Lynne who has helped me more than words can say. You’ve made me a better person.
So then – social media, events, marketing content, advertising, agency work, charity work and lots and lots and lots of writing – this is what awaits me in 2014. It’s going to be a lot of fun. Good luck in everything that you do this year – I’ll see you there!
