Distinguished Lecture Series

November 15, 2012

Looking forward to hearing Professor Sir Richard J Evans speaking tonight at Nottingham Trent University, The subject is ‘War in the Nazi Imagination’ and will explore the propaganda machine that was created during the war. Slightly heavy for a Thursday evening – but should be good – just seen that it is sold out…. Nige

So…. Hello!

I’m Siobhan (Not pronounced phonetically) and I have recently moved to Nottingham from Coventry for a bit of a change of scenery. The team at The Dairy have kindly let me join them for some work experience. I have my tasks to crack on with and thankfully ‘making the coffee’ is nowhere to be seen. I can’t stress enough, how poor my coffee making abilities are!

I was previously working at Cogent Elliott on the Jaguar account; maintaining and updating the website for all 26 countries. I really enjoyed this role as it was fast paced, I worked with a great team and I could see the future releases before anyone else.  I’m not a car person but my, do I love a shiny new Jag!

There was a very big team at Cogent, which was great but I’m very interested to see how an agency on a smaller scale operates. So far, no one has argued over the radio which is a nice change.

Hopefully, I can bring a little bit of something to the Dairy as a thank you for keeping me away from daytime TV and X factor reruns! #Rylanstyle.

Oh, and I have a cat called Mogwai who I love more than anything in the world.

Will post again soon… and hopefully I will have no coffee accidents to report on!

A big dairy ‘congrats’ to our client Nottingham Rugby! The team were up against traditionally strong, ex premiership side Bristol yesterday – and the fans were expecting a tough encounter. What we witnessed was a master class in free flowing, exciting, attacking rugby mixed with rock solid defence when needed. At 63-0 we thought this was one of the best days in the clubs recent history – but this was marred by Bristol scoring with 3 minutes to go…. ah well – you cant have everything!

56 nil up with twenty minutes to go….

Sad News From Ford

October 26, 2012

What a shame to hear sad news about the closure of the Ford Transit plant in Southampton this week – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-20079111
I worked on the Transit advertising account when I was in London and thoroughly enjoyed handling the launch of the new shape vehicle in 1986. We spent £2 million on TV advertising in one month – it was the biggest project I had ever worked on! Nige

Thanks to the e-business club for a great presentation this morning covering all that is new in mobile marketing. Fascinating stuff – call us if you want an up-date as things are changing by the minute!
The event was held in the board room of Nottingham Forest Football Club – so I couldn’t help myself taking a shot of one of the European Cups that the team won (albeit some years ago!!!)….. See shot below. Nige

As expected – a great presentation by Chris Barnatt at the University of Nottingham this morning. Chris started by saying his title was more of a discussion point that providing a set of answers – you can see and learn more at http://www.explainingthefuture.com.

We learned more about localising business, production on demand and the thinking that we really will have to change our way of thinking and doing business in the coming years….

The good news is (as Chris explained) that he feels corporations really are sitting up and taking notice of the new agenda. Maybe we do all have a future!!!

His new book can be bought or downloaded from Amazon.
