Sunday 10th July
I normally write the title of my latest Blog post last, but in this case it served as the starting point for this update. I am writing it at the end of a very busy week with a variety of different jobs sandwiched between my day to day marketing role promoting the sporting and heritage sites on the island.
I visited the first Guernsey FC training session of the 2016/2017 season last week and a few late evenings this week have been spent working on a video which features a preview of their pre-season training which now features on the club’s website. On Friday the Green Lions were also drawn a home fixture in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup which has excited a number of fans even more as we approach their first pre-season friendly match which is being played at home against Basingstoke Town FC on Saturday 30th July.
Keen to keep a foot in the sporting world I support the Ray Lowe Sporting Foundation in a marketing and secretarial capacity and last weekend I joined a number of their trustees at The Grand Mare Golf Club for their prize giving for the concluding round of the Ray Lowe Sporting Foundation Junior Golf Tour. I aim to keep the Foundation’s followers up to date on both Facebook and Twitter, so if you are on either network I encourage you to follow their great work, which is supporting more young people to play sport here in Guernsey.
The Sure Customer Service Awards 2016 were also held on Thursday evening in Market Square and I was privileged enough to be asked back for a second year to film the event. A great evening was had by all and I enjoyed celebrating the wide variety of businesses here on island that have been recognised for their great customer service. I hope that in a few years to come I am recognised for my pleasant, kind and professional manner and great customer service as without customers, no business would survive! The great collage shown below from Chris George gives you a flavour of the evening and you can check out my video via my showreel page.
On Friday I helped to develop the Guernsey Disability Alliance’s We All Matter Eh? campaign by filming more video content for their hidden disabilities campaign. Working with them for the past few months has opened my eyes to the many hidden disabilities that go unnoticed in my day to day life. I hope that once the videos make it into the public domain they will help to raise awareness of the many disabilities that aren’t instantly visible to the human eye and they hopefully urge islanders to think twice before judging and encouraging them to ask questions if they are unsure if someone could do with a helping hand.
Over the last 2 weeks I have also been devising the storyboard for two contrasting organisations based here in Guernsey. Whilst I can’t tell you too much at this stage, filming will begin before the end of July and you can be sure to see a few iconic Guernsey locations featuring heavily in both projects and one of them requires actors given the sensitive subject it is promoting awareness of. I am relishing both opportunities. Watch this space!
