A year of uncertainty turned into our most triumphant year yet and we couldn’t be more chuffed! Here are just some of our highlights…
Earlier this year we walked away with the Employer of the Year award at the SME Hertfordshire Business Awards, a great achievement for all of us this year. Not only that, but our very own Harry Dodd, an all-round genius, was shortlisted for Young Professional of the Year at the UK Search Awards. Getting shortlisted for awards such as these, let alone winning Employer of the Year, is a testament to all the hard work that our dedicated team has put into making iThinkMedia the successful search agency that it is today.
Back in July, we hosted our first ever Digital Day here at our offices in rural Hertford. Forty local business leaders came along to spend their morning with us to learn more about SEO, content and paid media from our in-house experts. Our free event was a huge success and was supported by our fantastic partners SkyAdSmart, SEOmonitor, Marin Software, Google, Pi Datametrics, Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce, Lloyds Bank and Majestic. We even had a full house! It was a great start to a newly annual event. Maybe we will see you there next year!
We did our part for charity this year, organising small company events that saw us do anything we could to help our local charities. From a summer fete fun day that saw us raise £350 for Mind, to dressing up in a Christmas Cracker outfit to raise donations for Save the Children. This year we also chose to do something a little different to what we are used too. We sacrificed our Secret Santa gifts so that we could raise £300 to donate to Carers in Herts, which will go towards buying young carers Christmas dinner and presents in the run up to Christmas.
2017 saw the introduction of a new kind of challenge – ping pong! Of course, this is something we all take very seriously, some a little too much. We even set up our own ping pong champions league, which has seen many squashed balls and warped bats along the way.
So there you have it – our achievements and successes of our busiest year yet. It has been a long old year, but we have made so many memories along the way. We are so proud of how far we have come as a business and as individuals. We couldn’t have asked for a better year.
We can’t wait to see what is in store for 2018!
See you all on the other side.
