Same deal as always. Local tech, entrepreneurs and small businesses get together for a drink or two. Informal place to seek out interesting people/ideas/freelancers/businesses in a local setting.... come join us all for another Silicon Junction Meetup. It's a chance to meet new contacts, local businesses, find work, find freelancers, and ultimately see how we can all work together in Battersea (also known as the Clapham Junction area).
We had a good turn out last time round, and you all asked for more so let's do more!
Let us know you're coming... or just show up! :)
Date: Tuesday, August 5th 2014
Time: 7pm onwards
Happy New Year to you all - I hope by now you are in the swing of all things 2014 and the new year finds you refreshed. 2013 was very kind to us here at G&I towers what with winning the Wandsworth business award for Marketing & Social Media and the addition of our Senior Account Manager Heather McKay to the team - all working to drive forward more successful campaigns and events. No doubt you have started the year sorting things out for the way ahead - perhaps (if we may be so bold) this might include booking a place on one of our social media training courses...
I find myself charmed and amused but ultimately, I'm afraid, unmoved by the new Social Platform, "Happier". The @theipaper features an interview with its founder, Nataly Kogan, this week. She has created an interesting and worthy response to the hordes of cynical moaners that proliferate the more popular Social Networks.
After years peering at (and through) the desolate but much loved Battersea Power Station we finally get a glimpse of how the old place (hopefully) will look when the £750 million development project is delivered in 6 or 7 years time... and the vision is breath-taking!
Some extraordinary new plans have been submitted for five blocks of appartments at Battersea's Power Station development.
Gertrude & Ivy wins Best Social Media & Marketing category at the Wandsworth Business Awards.
The organisers of a Group Exhibition in May are looking for a civicly-minded photographer to document and capture a series of workshops to be held in Battersea & Clapham in two local youth clubs and a primary school, as well as in Bow at a famous social enterprise community centre.
An IT colleague of mine recently told me about Code Club and I thought it might be of interest to the community here in Wandsworth.
Christmas has seen quite a lot of events happen around Battersea, with some of them adopting more traditional methods of promotion than others. This year we noticed that events like the White Christmas Fair and the Hanne & Co. Charity Auction are using social media to promote their events very effectively.
MTV Australia worked with ERTL Design to create a visual language and design a number of fun infographics for their MTV MOVEMENT campaign. The aim of MOVEMENT is to highlight issues that matter to young people and lead social action to improve the future of Australia. The campaign provides a platform for one person to become the voice of a powerful generation that needs to be heard. ERTL Design's infographics were used at press events and on MTV’s social media platforms and were received extremely well.
