CPD – What’s the point and will I learn anything new?

CPD – What’s the point and will I learn anything new?

Following her success at achieving Chartered PR Practitioner Status, Client Manager, Sara talks about the importance of Continuous Personal Development.

I have always enjoyed learning new things both inside and outside of work. When I can, I like reading, listening to audio books and my current favourite form of learning is…podcasts!

So how can I use these tools to improve my CPD and is there any point?

Yes, of course there is! With the changing pace of Public Relations and the ever-evolving digital communications sphere, I haven’t even scratched the surface.

CPD is a great way to manage professional development, demonstrating commitment to your sector and keeping up to date learning new skills. It’s all about improving, gaining knowledge, ensuring you remain current and effective. There is something very satisfying about being abreast of the latest trends and techniques. Not only is this of huge benefit personally, but clients gain from this too.

I am currently enrolled and due to complete the Digital Marketing Institute’s Certified Digital Marketing Professional programme. My skills and experience have always been rooted in traditional PR with a background in broadcast journalism; so now more than ever I need to get digital. This is not just for me to gain new skills but to gain the profession aptitudes to advise our clients on the latest advancements and improvements in digital communications.

The pandemic has proved that digital communications is more powerful than ever. We have all had to adapt and change how we do things, least of all communications.

Stephen Hawking famously said: “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”  Now more than ever is a time to learn, regroup, adapt and make change.

As a team, we are encouraged to gain as much CPD as we can. This comes from the top down, and to know what we have the support to learn alongside our day job is of huge benefit.

The CIPR is the only organisation with a Royal Charter enabling us as professionals to gain Chartered PR Practitioner status. The reason why it was important to me to achieve this was for recognition and confidence; not only for myself but for my clients too. As the CIPR say, “there is a huge difference between a dedicated professional who has made a commitment to a career in Public Relations and someone offering a similar service who lacks skill, knowledge, experience and ethical competence.”  I couldn’t have said it better myself!

I am now proud to be one of the 21 professionals in Northern Ireland to be Chartered, joining my boss Samantha and 379 others across the UK.

Feeling inspired? Here are a few of our favourite sites to help us push our knowledge to the next level:

Have you lost your communications mojo during lockdown?

Have you lost your communications mojo during lockdown?

Here we go again! Like most businesses, we were gutted to hear about the latest four-week lockdown in Northern Ireland. As a local business, we had just got our mojo back, with green shoots of growth emerging. Therefore, it is hard not to see this as a backwards step.

Our industry has taken a hit; clients suspended accounts; new business opportunities slowed down and launches and events were cancelled. But we are not alone! Countless strong, viable businesses have been tested to the max when in comes to securing work, retaining staff and innovating to move forward. But one fundamental remains the same – communication is key.

Now more than ever, we recognise the importance of strategic communications as brands and clients seek to differentiate, relate to audiences and demonstrate how too are adjust to the ‘new normal’.

As an agency, we are revising our own communications strategy and choosing wisely how best to promote ourselves and our services during this crazy time. Like many of our clients, we are making tough, yet worthwhile decisions of where to focus our reduced budgets and what the best platforms for us are to utilise now and as we emerge once again from this circuit breaker.

One thing is for sure, now more than ever, taking your business digital could unlock your recovery. Digital and social media marketing require much less budget than traditional offline marketing channels.

That’s not to say online marketing is cheap; it takes experience and skill to do digital well.

But they’re more cost-effective, measurable and flexible.

Companies who previously had no social media presence are now selling through Facebook and Instagram.

At Rumour Mill, we are also working hard behind the scenes on our own digital vision and continuing to create content that will maximise our exposure, get our name out there, and showcase our services beyond Northern Ireland. We want to do the same for businesses that need support navigating this area.

How to get your mojo back? Be one of those businesses that adapt, spot opportunities and connect with new customers.

As businesses adapt, we are here to secure your market position and restart growth. We will talk straight and be clear on strategy. Together we will review where you are, discuss where you want to get to and plan how to get you there.

Things will never be the same again. So why not reach out, let’s have a FREE virtual chat to help get your communications mojo back. Email us on hello@rumourmillcomms.com or call 028 90682185.

 

INSTAGRAM – 10 INTERESTING FACTS TO CELEBRATE 10 YEARS

INSTAGRAM – 10 INTERESTING FACTS TO CELEBRATE 10 YEARS

It may be hard to fathom but Instagram celebrated its 10th birthday this week!

In the last 10 years a hell of a lot has happened on the app. An egg got more likes than Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Anniston broke the internet with her Friends selfie, and it continues to the birthplace of countless influencers.

It is almost impossible to imagine a world without Instagram!

To mark this milestone, here at Rumour Mill we have compiled a list of 10 facts you may or may not know about one of the world’s most popular apps.

  1. The first person who posted a photo on Instagram was Kevin Systrom (born in December 30, 1983). The Co-founder of Instagram posted a photo with a stray dog in Mexico on July 16, 2010 with description “test” and this photo still exists on his profile: https://www.instagram.com/p/C

 

  1. Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion in 2012. At that time, Instagram had just 13 employees. Now Instagram is valued well over $100 billion and is about one-fifth of Facebook’s market cap.

 

  1. As of October 5, 2020, the most-liked photo on Instagram is a picture of an egg, posted by the account @world_record_egg. It was created to beat the previous record of a Kylie Jenner post. The picture currently has over 54 million likes.

 

  1. In the three years since its launch, Stories has become a huge part of what makes Instagram so popular. With half a billion people using Stories every single day, it’s clear that Stories are an important channel for brands.

 

  1. Instagram users will spend an average of 28 minutes per day on the platform in 2020. In comparison, time spent on Facebook is slightly decreasing. Instagram saw more time spent per day than Snapchat for the first time in 2019.

 

  1. Selena Gomez was the first person in the world to reach 100 million followers. This has since increased to 194million. If she were a country and her followers were that country’s population, it would be the 12th most populous country in the world. One of her most popular pictures ever was for Coca Cola.

 

  1. The top ten most popular hashtags in general are: #love #instagood #photooftheday #tbt #beautiful #cute #me #selfie #tagforlikes #happy #followme. Photos that utilise hashtags get 38% more engagement than those who upload without using hashtags.

 

  1. How-to tutorials are the most popular form of Instagram video content. Followed by behind-the-scenes posts, interviews, and news coverage. Buzzfeed’s Tasty videos may be the best-known example of how-to videos on Instagram.

 

  1. The most popular face filter on Insta Stories are the puppy ears. This is followed by the sleep mask, bunny ears, love with the heart-shaped darts, and koala ears. Seems like we all want to look like animals on our stories…

 

  1. If you thought that Instagram advertising only appeared in the last couple of years, here is an interesting fact! Advertising was introduced in October 2013 but only for select brands! In 2015 it became accessible for all users. Engagement on Instagram is 10 times higher than Facebook, 54 times higher than Pinterest, and 84 times higher than Twitter.

 

Happy Birthday Instagram…where will we all be in 2030!

 

Bonus fact: Instagram embraced its potential as a news source this year, employing its ubiquity to distribute coronavirus prevention techniques through a new call-out at the top of its home screen feed. In some countries, Instagram displayed a link to information from the World Health Organisation and local health ministries, along with a message like this: “Help Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus: See the latest information from the World Health Organization so you can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

Instagram also prevented users from searching for COVID-19-related augmented reality effects unless they were made in partnership with legitimate health organisations. This helped limit the spread of disinformation or insensitive jokes about the virus.

BBC APPRENTICE STAR OPENS FIRST EVER STORE,  CREATING SEVEN LOCAL JOBS

BBC APPRENTICE STAR OPENS FIRST EVER STORE, CREATING SEVEN LOCAL JOBS

Apprentice semi-finalist and Newry native, Grainne McCoy, opened the doors to her own store on Saturday 26th September, exactly four years to the day after her debut on the hit BBC One show. Give Us Beauty launched initially as an online makeup store in April 2020 and following its success plus significant investment, the retail store will this month create seven local jobs.

The Give Us Beauty store is an all-encompassing beauty emporium, providing not only a retail store for cosmetics but  a blow-dry bar, a makeup studio and beauty clinic all under the one roof. The store will house global brands such as INGLOT, Note Cosmetics, Maybeline, Revlon, SOSU by SJ, P. Louise and much more. Customers will also be able to avail of services including makeup applications, 1-to-1 lessons, facials, massages, hair styling and spray tanning.

Speaking on the new business venture, founder Grainne McCoy said,

“I am absolutely delighted to finally be opening my own store which has been four years in the making. It was in my initial business plan to Lord Alan Sugar to have a retail store for cosmetics that could survive online and also physically be a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs. We launched GiveUsBeauty.com back in March 2020 and the response has been phenomenal. We were planning to launch the retail store at the same time however obviously things were delayed due to covid-19.”

Grainne added, “Covid has presented a difficult time for our industry but I am confident now is the right time to introduce the retail store. I was also conscious to work with and support local designers to create an innovative space for the city with quirky features throughout to establish an ‘instagramable’ destination for Newry.”

In the months ahead the new store will be housing its very own make-up training academy, where budding make-up artists can avail of innovative lessons in the artistry of make-up, learning complex techniques from Grainne McCoy and a team of highly trained artists.

Grainne adds, “I am extremely excited for the people of Newry and beyond to see what we have done with this space. This is more than a retail store, it is a space for training the next generation of makeup artists, for socialising with likeminded people to connect over cosmetics and to indulge in some pampering. I can’t think of a better place to initiate the Give Us Beauty journey than my hometown.”

Grainne’s impressive career has seen her work as a makeup artist for global stars at Cannes Film Festival, as well as being the in-house artist at Youtube for their Google Hangouts series. Following her stint on the BBC Apprentice in 2016, in which she finished 5th, she launched her own company, Grainne McCoy Cosmetics in 2018. Give Us Beauty represents her latest venture and acts an extension to her own personal brand. The Newry store is the first in the franchise with plans for further stores across Ireland already in place with locations to be revealed over the coming months.

DENROY INTRODUCES ‘BUBL’- A TRANSPARENT FILTRATION MASK

DENROY INTRODUCES ‘BUBL’- A TRANSPARENT FILTRATION MASK

One of the world’s leading innovators of high-tech, critical components for the aerospace and medical industries, Denroy, has launched ‘bubl’, its solution to making face coverings more empathetic.

Based in Bangor, Denroy has designed a transparent filtration mask, a first in the UK market with a unique transparent component, coupled with a replaceable eight-hour filtration system, making it 100% reusable.

The ergonomic design means the mask fits snugly around the bridge of the nose, cheeks and chin. It is also designed to a high spec allowing the wearer to breathe easier. The transparent visibility allows for natural, empathetic communication by reducing barriers caused by traditional masks. The benefit of being able to see facial expressions, read visual cues or even lip read, is a huge benefit. The newly awarded CE mark gives consumers confidence that bubl conforms with health, safety, and environmental protection.

Bubl was born out of a time of uncertainty for Denroy due to the devasting effect the current pandemic has had on the aerospace industry. As a team of innovators and solution focused creators, bubl has been able to harness the passion of its team and secure all jobs within the business.

Speaking on the development of bubl, Kevin McNamee CEO of Denroy said: “Lockdown has challenged us to pivot the business in a slightly different direction from what we are used to. But what a fantastic product to do it with! Our design team has poured the same passion and invention into creating the bubl, as they would have for any other highly engineered product. It is comfortable, reusable and most importantly transparent.  Seeing someone simply smile behind their mask, could make a real difference and positively impact many industries who may consider swapping their tradition mask for the bubl.

Lead designer of bubl, Marcus McCay adds: “We are delighted to launch bubl, a product that we are really proud of and something that was developed out of the COVID-19 crisis. From fighter jets to front-line heroes, we have diversified within the business to create a barrier mask that eases communication and fits snugly on your face. During lockdown, we also collaborated on the ‘Hero Shield’ visor that has already been supplied to over 1 million NHS workers. Now, the bubl mask is available for everyone and it will eradicate some of the pressures that those working in person facing occupations are up against.”

Bubl is a type II medical mask and comes with 60 filters to be changed after eight hours of use. It retails at £29.95 and replacement filters are £9.95 per pack. bubl can be purchased online via: https://denpro.co.uk

ETHICS EXPLORED: CUT THE CRAP AND TELL THE TRUTH!

ETHICS EXPLORED: CUT THE CRAP AND TELL THE TRUTH!

Liar, Liar, pants on fire….is how the saying goes! But you don’t want anyone saying that about you or your business…do you?

#fakenews

In a media era were #fakenews is always in the spotlight it is so important that you keep your brand on an ethnical path and avoid the temptation to manipulate the narrative. Be brave and stay open, transparent and honest in your communications to protect your reputation.

The public aren’t fools; they are savvier than ever when to comes to spotting fake news or identifying misleading communications. We are in an era of transparency; the public will be the first to call out a brand that is lying. If you are caught being generous with the truth be prepared to lose more than money in trying to limit the damage. 

Words May Lie, But Action Tells The Truth

But telling the truth is a given. Right? No! Sadly, brands think it is ok to bend the truth, to influence reality and paint a different picture to that being actioned. Yet, in the words of Mr. Weasley in Harry Potter “the truth will out”.

Never has trust been more sought after. If your audience don’t trust you, they won’t buy from you or buy into you. So, focus on building that trust, and be honest as well as innovative in your marketing and communications efforts.

For instance, if we take the current communications from world leaders around the best approach to Covid-19, the majority of people do not trust what they are being told. Why? The damage has been done. Leaders are rarely forthcoming with transparent information – allowing doubt and mistrust to grow.

Honesty must be built into corporate culture. This takes more than the publication of a list of corporate values. Leaders must behave honestly and openly at all times. Walking the talk is essential.

Positive reviews and feedback is great but you cannot afford to ignore even a single negative review. Proactive action and strategic planning is much better than damage control, knee-jerk reactions and tactical approaches.

Remember to sell honestly, never sell your honesty.

HEALTHY KIDZ EMBRACES TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT LOCAL SCHOOLS MAINTAIN THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF PUPILS

HEALTHY KIDZ EMBRACES TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT LOCAL SCHOOLS MAINTAIN THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF PUPILS

Healthy Kidz has built a strong reputation for delivering hugely successful in-school health programmes, that focus on holistic physical activity that encourages general health and wellbeing. However, with the result of school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, Healthy Kidz have not rested on its laurels. Instead it has created a pioneering online platform that will encourage pupils to maintain healthy lifestyles that can be sustained outside the classroom.

Harnessing the power of technology, this new online platform allows teachers to access a wealth of engaging and fun cross-curricular lesson plans and educational activities via the Healthy Kidz dashboard.  It covers physical, wellbeing and general health and each lesson completed adds to every child’s health profile, with comprehensive health and activity reports generated on an individual, class and school level. These reports are instantly available for boards of governors, principals, teachers, pupils and parents.

In addition to the dashboard, every pupil has access to the free Healthy Kidz app. The app further encourages all children to continue their health and well-being journey outside the classroom. Pupils redeem points awarded for completed lessons and recorded at-home activities, enabling them to upgrade their Virtual Buddy avatar and move up the Healthy Kidz class league tables.

Healthy Kidz Director of Coaching Paul Carvill said: “We have been working extremely hard on this exciting new venture for Healthy Kidz. Developing our digital programme over the past number of months has resulted in a one of a kind online platform that will help teachers to deliver, record and report on their pupil’s health and wellbeing.

“As the result of schools closing, we had to be inventive.  Our virtual sports day in June was a huge success with over 500 schools signed up to take part in Northern Ireland.  This online solution worked, so school began requesting more online resources.  Now we have an online platform that we are really proud of and its potential impact to schools and pupils globally.”

Paul adds, “We understand time constraints that principals and teachers are under, so the platform’s bespoke design is easy to navigate for teachers and live reporting functions mean the schools can access downloadable data at the click of a button.”

Principal of Hart Memorial Primary School and one of the first local schools to sign up to this year’s new digital solution, Julie Shipley said, “I’m thrilled to be on board and believe Healthy Kidz has a huge part to play in our school this year, especially when it comes to the health and wellbeing of our pupils.”

Whilst Healthy Kidz is open for schools across Northern Ireland, it is also calling on local businesses to partner with them in order to support the implementation and further development of the programme.

EXPLORE A HAVEN OF SICILIAN CUISINE AT SIX BY NICO BELFAST  INTRODUCING ‘SICILY’

EXPLORE A HAVEN OF SICILIAN CUISINE AT SIX BY NICO BELFAST INTRODUCING ‘SICILY’

They say the culture of a country is best reflected in its cuisine. True to his Italian self, Chef Nico Simeone is to bring a haven of taste and authenticity to Six by Nico Belfast this Autumn as he launches the restaurant’s latest theme.

A taste of Sicily is coming to Belfast. If you have ever experienced the breath-taking landscapes and amazing food of Sicily, you will know those foodie memories are unforgettable.

Sicily, the largest Mediterranean island, just off the “toe” of Italy’s boot, is one of the few places in the world that manages to combine a wealth of aromas and flavours together. Today, Sicilian cuisine is a singular combination of Arab, Greek, French, Spanish and North African influences, with myriad Italian flavours thrown in for good measure.

With this in mind, Chef Nico Simeone has created a tantalizing tasting menu to recreate a trip to Sicily, reminiscent of time spent exploring the town of Palermo, bringing home flavours from some the most richly textured culinary heritage anywhere on earth.

The new six course tasting menu includes, Arancini – Cacio é Pepe & Egg Yolk Jam. Red Pepper & Smoked Mozzarella, Spinach & Gorgonzola & Pickled Walnut; Sicilian Lamb – Aubergine Caponata, Olive Tapenade & Lemon Gel; Hazelnut Ragu – Saffron Pappardelle & Aged Parmesan; Seabass – Fregola Sarda, Cherry Tomato Puttanesca, Caper Raisin Dressing & Crispy Cavolo Nero; Porchetta 
Salsiccia, Pickled Fennel, Mustarda & Pistachio Crumb.

In a country instilled with a penchant and a passion for sweets, it wouldn’t be a complete Sicilian menu without an Italian treat. Diners at the restaurant will end their food experience with a Sicilian Lemon Tart – Basil Sablé, Creme fraiche Sorbet, Red Wine Gel, Crystallised Pine nut & Rosemary.

Chef Nico Simone said: “From perfect Porchetta to Arancini, Sicilian food is world-famous but many will be very surprised by just how varied and diverse Sicily’s cuisine is. It’s a veritable melting pot of flavour. While much of it is clearly Italian (there’s plenty of pastas, olive oils, wines and seafood) there are some commonly used ingredients that clearly stand out and this is what our guests at Six by Nico will discover on our new menu.”

Diners can book a table now for ‘Sicily’. Open from midday, Monday through to Sunday, each six-course menu will be available from noon to night. The menu will be priced from £29 per person with the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine and specialist drinks pairing for an additional £26. As ever, there is a vegetarian alternative available for every course, as well as Mediterranean snack sides.

Nico added: “Last summer our team spent time on the Italian Island soaking up the scenery and eating some of the best food in Europe. Raisins and saffron crop up in the island’s most famous dishes, and cooking techniques differ from those found on the mainland. We have brought our experiences back to the restaurants and we look forward to showcasing these inspirations with a flavour-filled menu.”

‘Sicily’ will run from Monday September 7th – Sunday October 18th 2020.
