How we work
And why we do what we do.
We have a passion for our profession and part of that is about networking. We were tired of the boring networking events run by our respective industries so we decided to stop bitching about it over a few beers and get off our arses to do something about it.
We’ve all been entertained by media owners, agencies or had to do the entertaining for our clients. It can get quite tiresome… so we thought we’d open it up. Make a social squad of like minded people aimed at injecting the fun into our networking events.
It started on wheels…
It all started with MediaVelo. A cycling group for lycraclad media professionals who wanted to get outside more and peddle. the group has gone from strength to strength under the stewardship of founder James Harrison supported by James Middleton.
The group host regular informal meet up rides, along with trips and events in the UK and Europe. Get a bike. Get in the Velo.
Then we took to the course…
Dan and Marko joined up with James to launch MediaGolf in 2017 having all run other golf days before in adhoc ways. MediaGolf operate a number of golf events each season and strive to generate cash through these to donate to their chosen charity each year. Media Professionals can book on a 2 or 4 ball to network with their golf playing peers and enjoy different course around the UK.
Movember UK have been the main beneficiary over the years with thousands of pounds of donations handed over to help stop young men dying too early.
2019 sees attention shift to helping Cure Leukaemia. Cure Leukaemia was established in 2003 by Professor Charlie Craddock CBE and patients Graham Silk and Michael Woolley to allow patients with blood cancer in our region to access the remarkably effective new treatments which were then becoming available.
Socials so good you can taste them.
Nick and Sarah formed MediaVino to give more access to wine through building relationships and a community of like-minded people.
