Welcome to Optimism

Good Jobs Programme Session 2

On Thursday, we welcomed back to the agency the 30 students from Sir George Monoux Sixth Form College and Mulberry School for Girls who are taking part in our WK Good Jobs Programme. This was the second of three workshops we are running for them, and the aim was to teach them how to be Creatives for the afternoon.
Our Tom and Ellen planned and delivered an amazing workshop. The students had to find the benefits of Lurpak butter, pair this with stereotypes about either old age pensioners, dads or students, and then come up with an app or TV ad idea that they will go on to produce in the final session.
Roseanne, Charlotte, Liv, Holly, Peigh, and Rachel worked with teams of students to complete each task.
The students came up with some really interesting ideas to bring forward, although we’re still figuring out how we’re going to source an army of butter Grannies to film one group’s ad next time.

Gingerbread Hanbury street

Introducing our lovely gingerbread houses currently displayed at our reception area! They replicate Hanbury street in London where our office is located. That’s our beloved the Golden Heart pub…

If you have watched the gingerbread house special on Great British Bake Off, you might be thinking that making a gingerbread house is a biscuit disaster. However, luckily, our account executive Preety is also a professional baker so she saved us from the disaster and made our gingerbread houses even prettier and merrier!
