Even though – as always – we are super busy in the office, we are definitely in the festive spirit, with our Christmas tree, Pukka tea advent calendar and naughty elves dotted around the place.
We’ve had yet another fantastic year, and as it draws closer to 2019 we wanted to take a look back and reminisce on the highlights of the last 12 months…
We definitely started the year with a bang, when we were selected as Eaton Smith’s Business of the Month award winner for February. And shortly after, the team were also lucky enough to be shortlisted in the PR Agency of the Year under 10 employees category of the Prolific North Awards.
And it’s safe to say that the whole office is buzzing and we feel honoured whenever we are selected for a potential accolade – we are very grateful that our continued hard work within the industry is recognised.
Scriba has continued to grow over the course of 2018 – both the client and team numbers have never been so big! We have welcomed three amazing new faces to the family – Amy Lloyd, Ruth Harrison-Davies and Luci Ownsworth – whilst other staff have excelled in their roles and received promotions. We may even have a new colleague in the new year – watch this space!
We have taken on a stream of new clients throughout the year, but in October alone we added seven new projects to our roster, taking our total current number to a staggering 36! And, sticking to what we love and know, they are all – of course – in keeping with our technical area of expertise.
As a result of the above, in 2018 Scriba witnessed the gross revenue increase by a huge 49% and the net profit saw an uplift of 40% – which we predict to continue into 2019!
Now for the stuff less about us and more about you. A highlight of our year has to be our school competition and receiving such wonderful stories from children in the area. We loved heading to the institutions and gifting the 250 books to the pupils themselves – well done to the winners!
We have also continued to deliver our ‘how to write the perfect press release’ workshops to local business people. We love supporting brands from the area as much as we can, and empowering them to craft a voice for themselves.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to our clients, who have continued to support us throughout the year. We hope you love your Christmas presents as much as we do –#ChristmasGameFace!
We will be in the office until midday 21st December, so if you need anything from us before then please feel free to get in touch! Then we will close until Wednesday 2nd January, where business will continue as normal.
All that’s left for us to do now, is wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
