Another year has come and almost gone. 2016 has been another big year for me personally and the team. We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Roll on 2017.
As of the 1st of October, SESOME agency turned three! Reaching this milestone has prompted me to reflect on the most salient lessons I’ve learnt since that fateful day in 2013... Almost exactly three years ago, I did two (potentially) stupid things simultaneously! 1. Set up my own business (that could be a number of future blog posts alone!) 2. Made that business an agency, having never worked in an agency before After 14 years working client side, running international teams, managing an in-house team, internal suppliers and multiple agencies around the world, I thought it was time to do [...]
Running an agency can sometimes feel like having a second family. And recently SESOME – my other baby – turned two years old. And, much as I did last year, I celebrated this special anniversary by taking stock of the past 365 days. The second year has been a big one for us, so making sure we have a plan in place of the upcoming years! In our first year, SESOME got its very first agency and clients to call our own. It took a few hard-yards, but we quickly found our stride. We learnt our trade, forged an identity [...]
We make no secret of the fact that we love working slap-bang in the middle of London. There’s something about this city that brings out the fun side in everyone who lives/works/spends time here. For this reason, we thought we would highlight just a few of the ways in which the capital has risen to the occasion so far this summer, and provided some of the most ingenious, hilarious and just plain cool celebrations and activities for real fun in the sun! Wimbledon on the Big Screen – There’s no British summer without Wimbledon, and we got our fix chilling [...]
We had the pleasure of having Lia as a graphic design intern for two months. Apart from good memories she also left us with this message: HELLO! Thank you so much for the last 2 months. It’s been a great internship with you guys and I’m so honoured to have worked with such an amazing team. I’ll miss you guys! But expect me to show up at future parties—I mean, only if you miss my presence (of course you will) and would like to invite me. Jamie— Hey friend!! From teaching me neat tricks here and there on programs to [...]
I was privileged to be asked to attend and speak again at the (IMHO) most relaxed, friendly and also insightful of the travel blogger community. I spoke at Traverse 13 back in Brighton and then was due to attend in Kingston the weekend just gone. However, serious 'man-flu' got in the way and I couldn't move or speak. So, after having 3 days of forced internet free time, I decided to publish my deck anyway. It is on slideshare, and embedded here. If you have any questions, leave comments OR tweet me and use the traverse hashtag.
