A week at MRM
Tom Desborough gives an insight into a week at MRM, giving all the gossip from his working week while highlighting what news has interested MRM over the past seven days.
Another week’s gone by at MRM and we’re coming to the end of the longest month of the year. It’s certainly felt like it after all the present buying I’m sure we all did.
In the news this week it’s been revealed by the Office for National Statistics that the UK’s net sovereign debt has piled up to £1 trillion, equating to around £64.2% of GDP, for the first time since records began.
There’s been big news here at MRM too this week, as we’ve announced that we’ve chosen the RNIB as our inaugural charity of the year. We’ll be working, in various ways, throughout the year to support the charity. Charlotte has already kicked off fund raising by pledging to run just over 13 miles in the Eastbourne half marathon. If you’d like to give both her and the RNIB your support, then click on through to Charlotte’s JustGiving page. And for a bit more information on why the RNIB is MRM’s chosen charity of the year and the great work they do, take a look at Jenny’s blog from earlier this week.
In other news for MRM, our very own head of social media, Michael Taggart, was interviewed by Gorkana last week. He gave his views on why both journalists and PRs deserve mutual respect, the changing attitude towards social media and spoke about his previous roles at the Daily Mail and at Brighton and Hove council.
There have also been some major developments for our clients this week with, Nucleus, the IFA-owned and controlled wrap platform led by CEO David Ferguson, launching a video that looks at the revolution of online wraps. This came hot on the heels of the Paradigm Group launching its new corporate wrap business, Amber Financial Investments (Amber).
