Here is the new podcast from Finsbury Media – it’s only a little ‘un so check it out.
Delighted to be featured in this month’s Surrey Life magazine in the ‘Men In Business’ section.
As the article states ‘Surrey men mean business – we turn the spotlight on some of the county’s most successful – and discover what it is that makes them tick.’
So if you want to know what the most important bit of advice anyone has given me, what I’d tell someone who wanted to start a career in digital – and my take on equality in the workplace you can check it out.
It will be in the shops this weekend.
The first show of 2018 saw the team from Finsbury Media descend on Alexandra Palace for the huge ToolFair show. This is the first of many shows I will be organizing and attending with the team.
As part of the show, I designed a totally new look stand and flyers and even did a special show offer for new clients.
The tag line was ‘Don’t Make A Dog’s Dinner Out of getting new Clients‘ – as many people treat lead generation and AdWords in a crazy and haphazard way. There is also a feeling that Adwords can be a waste of money, it doesn’t work, or that it’s just too confusing. All incorrect!
As a tech company, it was a pleasure to show exactly what we do, and why tracking, optimization and using data is so important.
I even met several clients that I have dealt with in my previous roles, so that was pretty cool. A special shout to two companies that I used to get the show up an running – the stand was manufactured by Display Wizard – really great UK based team that sorted out the stand for me and helped with my design. Check them out at https://www.displaywizard.co.uk/
And I also made flyers – and postcards too using my favourite online printer Instant Print. Check them out at https://www.instantprint.co.uk/
We had many great new connections and conversations with potential clients and partners – thanks to everyone that visited the stand and made the event such a success for us.
We are back to work and have plans for the coming months.
We are attending several shows, we have
- The Surrey Business Expo on June 13th at the Surrey Sports Park,
- Kent Vision LIVE on 16 May at the Kent Event Centre –
- And at the end of January, we are at Alexandra Palace for ToolFair / Elex show.
We have also entered various shows and awards, including the Theo Paphitis SBS, The Surrey Digital Awards and The Guildford Innovation Awards.
Plus I also hope to be at several speaking events later in the year, and I will post full details here.
So a busy few months ahead. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Today saw the pre-Christmas Connect Surrey networking event.
There was a quiz (in the style of the Chase), prizes of wine and choccies, and more funny jumpers than you can shake a stick at.
Did I win?
But at least I managed to wish the fellow gang all the best for Christmas and the New Year.
Maybe I should’ve worn my Christmas jumper?
Well, as you may know, my gastronomic passion is Indian food – a particular favourite the Ashuka Tandoori in Merrow who won Surrey Indian of the Year. Well deserved too!
So it was unusual that I went to a Thai restaurant for a festive treat with the Finsbury Media gang.
I’m not normally that keen on Thai – but the rooftop restaurant The Thai Terrace changed all that!
Situated in the heart of Guildford, with panoramic views of the town, the restaurant is simply stunning. Wonderful food, service and cocktails – it’s easy to see why they won the Experience Guildford Customer Service Award 2017 for Independent Restaurants.
This will definitely be one of my favourite restaurants when I fancy a change from poppadoms, mint sauce and Chicken Dhansak!
Give them a try when you are in the area – just make sure you book!

Guildford based technology business Finsbury Media delivered sacks of presents for sick children staying at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. The Google Premier Agency specialise in generating leads using their unique online platform and AdWords.
The team were joined by excited office pup ‘Chelsea the Frenchie’ as they presented their gifts to hospital staff.
Paul Squires who is based at the Jeffries Passage HQ comments, ‘As a responsible business we are keen to give back to the local community. We want to help make a kids Christmas better. Our founder Carlos is a US Native, and as the idea of a ‘toy drive’ is commonplace in the States, he wanted to do something similar here in the UK.’
‘My children and Carlos’ firstborn son, Carlos Dasilva III were all born with the help of the fantastic staff at the Royal Surrey, so it seemed a natural choice to support them now and with future promotions. We hope we spread a little joy for those children in hospital during this period. ”
Rachel Mason, Corporate Fundraising Manager says ‘We are delighted to receive the help and support of local business like Finsbury Media – we are currently raising money for our new unit High Dependency Unit.
