NMPi recently partnered with BIG Alliance, an initiative designed to help businesses create social change for Islington. For our first project, we sent 4 of our team out to deliver digital training as part of a wider entrepreneurial project run by the law firm, Slaughter and May, called Firm Futures.
The project is designed to support new business ideas, with workshops sessions geared towards different aspects of building your own business.
Our team was a knowledgeable one: two paid media executives, a junior marketing manager, and a partnerships manager; each bringing their own distinct set of expertise. Our session focused on developing your visual brand, building your website, and the importance of establishing a social media presence.
From icebreakers to wireframes, we worked with the future business owners to help them figure out the direction of their brands:
- What would their logo look like?
- What kind of colours would they use, and how would they reflect their brand?
- What information would they include on their website?
The participants walked away with heads full of ideas and tips on how to push their brands out into the world.
It was a hugely rewarding session for everyone involved and the positive attendee feedback was well worth the whole experience. Overall, we were able to work with new people across the business, work on our public speaking, and give something back to the community.
