May’s been a great mix of productivity and fun at the Spindogs HQ. We’ve landed two new website sign-ups, welcomed another new Frontend Developer, had seven website launches, released a new White Paper, hosted six events (phew!), held an internal Eurovision party and celebrated two new Kentico Certified Developers… all in a months' work as they say!
What’s gone live?
- South Wales Girls Golf
- Dakota Hotels *in conjunction with Black and White Thinking
- SCIF (induction Framework)
Who’s the newbie?
This month we welcomed Frontend Developer, Jon Sparks into the Spindogs fold. He’s hit the ground running and you can read more about his background here.
- ONE FOR WORK
We hosted an event in collaboration with the DMA on Brexit & GDPR: Making privacy a brand asset, with speaker Zach Thornton at the Principality Stadium. As if one talk wasn't enough, we immediately whisked Zach off to speak again for a web audience back at the HQ, not before a bacon sarnie of course...
- ONE FOR PLAY
We had the lovely Athena from Meticulous Ink in to teach a few of us and some of our clients the calligraphy ropes, naturally, we decided a touch of Prosecco and some snacks were essential to compliment all the hard work...
Each month, our entire office sits in fear waiting to hear who will be summoned to appear on the IGTV. This month, it fell on our amazing Support team and they SMASHED it!
They talked us through The Benefits of In-house Support and if you’re not up to date, you can catch it here.
We also decided to try going live on Instagram for our Brexit & GDPR event which proved to be a brilliant way for our following to keep up-to-date with the really informative talk from the DMA.
You may have heard us mention it once or twice but we released our second white paper with a focus on Online Marketing: Creating a Powerful Online Marketing Strategy.
We've also done a fair bit of blogging this month! In case you missed any of 'em, here's a list of what was published in May:
- THE SECRET WORLD OF GIRLS IN DEVELOPMENT
- GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR DISCOVERY WORKSHOP
- CREATIVITY MEETS INNOVATION: THE ROLE OF THE FRONTEND DEVELOPER
- THE SPINDOGS PROJECT MANAGEMENT PROCESS
- THE THREE KENTICO-TEERS
Corrr... doesn't that sound like a lot of work?!
In true Spindogs style, we managed to squeeze in a little fun too...
Eurovision was the perfect excuse to celebrate with a bit of grub and a lunchtime get together.
Without his consent, we pitted Senior Account Manager, Luke, against Marketing Manager, Emily's dog Lola in a "who wore it better?" competition featuring some of our client, Burns, merch. We won't put him through the humiliation again with an actual vote, but we'll let you guess the outcome...
That's all for now folks, remember to check in at the end of next month to see what June had in store for the Spindogs team!
