Well, what a year 2023 has been! From becoming B Corp Certified to winning Video of the Year, there’s been so many highlights it’s impossible to pick just one.
So, we’re going to take you through a bunch of our best bits instead. Here’s our Entyce Wrapped 2023!
Becoming a B Corp agency
Of course, we’re going to have to start by talking B S again… B Corp Stuff of course! We are so proud that after a lot of hard work by our team, we received B Corp Certification in August 2023. We already knew that we did so many wonderful things as a business but to have it confirmed and on a plaque is fantastic. We’re already enjoying being part of such a brilliant community, and those who came to our first B Social Chester at Artezzan in November will testify it was a great evening! We’re looking forward to hosting many more B Corp community events in 2024 so keep your eyes peeled!
Video of the Year 2023
We were absolutely over the moon to win Video of the Year at the Prolific North Awards in May this year. Our video, Women in Construction for scaffolding and construction training and consultancy providers, SIMIAN beat stiff competition from the likes of M&S, Cheshire Fire & Rescue, and the BBC to take home the prize.
In September, we welcomed businesses from all over the North West to a live panel event in the Storyhouse, Chester to chat all things internal comms. Our very own Jane Entwistle took centre stage, alongside Dr. Sue Smith, a health and wellness professional coach and speaker, and Tom Smith, Internal Communications and Engagement Adviser at Oxfam. The event was a sold out success with delegates from CBRE, Kellogg’s and Capita attending. Look out for news of our next Endorphin event coming soon in 2024!
Hope House was our nominated charity again for 2023 and we’ve enjoyed taking part in a few fundraising events for them this year, raising over £1,800 in total! Back in March, our ‘Entyce Run Club’ took part in Chester 10K and in November, our entire team completed a virtual marathon for Hope House’s Final Moments Matter campaign.
We started our official work placement programme back in 2022 and this year we have welcomed 10 wannabe marketers through our doors! We’re incredibly proud to be investing in our industry’s future and we look forward to welcoming more work experience recruits in 2024! For more information on our work experience programme, go here.
Entyce Live webinars
In addition to everything else we’ve been up to, we also managed to go live on LinkedIn 9 times this year! Our bitesize lunchtime webinars have covered everything from design trends to SEO tips and internal comms and have been viewed over 3,500 times! We’ll definitely be back for more in 2024 so watch this space! In the meantime, you can catch up with all of our previous live webinars over on our YouTube channel now.
Of course, we couldn’t let a roundup of 2023 go without mentioning some of the incredible projects we’ve worked on this year. From our shortlisted website for the amazing Ice Cream Farm to our (also shortlisted) B2B finance campaign for our longstanding client, Zodeq, our team have worked together and smashed it out of the park. In addition to these, we’ve also completed a website for accountancy and business advisory specialists, Ellis & Co and welcomed some brilliant new clients in the legal and construction sectors – more news on this soon!
On that note, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our wonderful clients and team for a fantastic 2023. Thank you for all your support this year. And with not one but two amazing award ceremonies already in the diary for next year (hello Northern Digital Awards and Downtown in Business Awards!), as well as lots of new work to reveal, 2024 looks set to be even better. Merry Christmas everyone, and a Happy New Year!
