New clients, new partnerships and a new home
It’s been a busy time here at High-Rise, with some exciting new clients with a social value focus, a new partnership with digital marketing experts Relative and a new office space to boot!
We’ve been hired by Greater Manchester Talent Match (GM Talent Match), a Big Lottery-funded programme who do amazing work with young people in the local community aged 18-24, who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work.
We’ll be providing event management, video production and PR support for GM Talent Match’s ‘Still Hidden’ conference at Gorton Monastery on 11th October. With speakers including Big Lottery Fund Chief Executive Dawn Austwick and People’s Powerhouse Chairman Edna Robinson, the conference will address the important issue of youth unemployment across Greater Manchester.
Another conference we’re providing event management services for is the next People’s Powerhouse Convention taking place on 20th November at the Northern Commercials Stadium in Bradford. With some brilliant speakers including Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham and Susan Hinchcliffe, Leader of Bradford Council, it’s all about inspiring change in the North and ensuring that people and local communities are at the heart of Powerhouse plans.
Social value is at the heart of what we do, so we’re thrilled to be helping clients like GM Talent Match and the People’s Powerhouse movement with event management and media relations, to gain awareness of the highly important social value work they do in their local communities. With this in mind, we’ve also joined Social Enterprise UK to show our commitment to supporting social goals and community development.
Meanwhile, our new partnership with Relative means we’re able to offer a really valuable, full communications and digital marketing services to clients. Together, we’re working on a number of new accounts including Aspire Behaviour Managementwhich provides expert behaviour management support for children with social, emotional and mental health challenges, Bright Direction Training which supports people into employment and Edenfield-based dermatology experts Blemish Clinic whose owner Jan Birch is campaigning for safer aesthetic standards.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also moved offices! We now have a new home at the stunning Old Bonded Warehouse in Manchester’s St John’s district. If you fancy popping round for a brew and a chat, please do get in touch…
