Healthy Minds Workshop

Healthy Minds Workshop

We all have times when life gets on top of us both at home and at work. At Moxie and Mettle, we know how important it is to take care of ourselves and that good mental health enables people to thrive, as well as being physically fit.

We pride ourselves on creating and maintaining a workplace where we can all develop and grow together, in a supportive and friendly environment. There is of course also strong evidence that workplaces with high levels of mental wellbeing are more productive, so it also makes good business sense.

That’s why we found Trina Gazzard, a registered Psychotherapist to support our team with some practical, no-nonsense advice about looking after your mental health.

This is what our team had to say about the Healthy Minds Workshop –

Sue

A great Healthy Minds Workshop with Trina – it was fun, factual and amazing to find out what your brain can do if you tweak your thoughts. Having a positive outlook on life and being grateful for what we have goes a long way to keeping a healthy mind and body.

It’s possible to create new neurons to change the way we behave in certain situations which can be anything from managing stress to losing weight. I would recommend Trina, who delivers a good informative, easy to understand workshop. Thanks, Trina!

Lynsey

I found the session with Trina really thought-provoking.

It was fascinating to learn about how humans respond to stress, how the brain works, and how the chimp and intellectual sides of our brain profoundly affect our sense of wellbeing.

I felt like I came away with some excellent stress management strategies, I’d definitely recommend speaking to Trina if stress is becoming a major life problem; I found her captivating!

Madison

Meeting Trina was a memorable experience.

She explained how to have and maintain a positive mindset and how our brain can be affected by negativity. She told us about the drama triangle, which was a new concept for me, and it really opened my eyes to how we can be pulled into it so easily. I think that every workplace would benefit from having a mental-health workshop so that the employees can have a clear understanding of how the brain works.

I have taken away so much from the workshop, and I feel like my outlook on life and work has changed.

Liz and Becs

It was so great to be able to offer this workshop for the team, and our thanks go to Trina for such an excellent, appropriate and information a few hours.

We would highly recommend Trina’s Health Minds Workshop to our clients and candidates – obviously, Trina can tailor the workshop for your team; do get in touch if you’d like to find out more

 

A day in the life of a: Digital Marketing Manager, our chat with Morgan Paley – Estrella Green

A day in the life of a: Digital Marketing Manager, our chat with Morgan Paley – Estrella Green

Considering last month’s Social Media Week Bristol, Moxie & Mettle understand digital marketing is more important today more than ever before. Therefore, we wanted to chat with some digital marketing experts about their experiences within their roles.

So, meet Morgan Paley, he is the Digital Marketing Manager at Estrella Green, a strategic marketing agency working with technology companies to drive revenue and build brand equity. Morgan talks us through his journey so far, his experiences agency vs client-side, and the setbacks he’s had to overcome transitioning from Product Design to Marketing.

Moxie & Mettle: Tell us about your career journey; how have you got to where you are now?

Morgan Paley: I studied Product Design at University which I didn’t necessarily enjoy, but I certainly don’t regret. Through the course, I was able to learn how to use multiple software packages and took a considerable interest in graphic design. After graduating, I took the first job I could as a graphic designer. Working closely with the sales and marketing team, I discovered digital marketing and worked towards eventually becoming the executive for the company. I wanted to push myself and felt that I was working in the wrong industry, so after a few months of travelling, I applied to a marketing agency who specialises in technology.

Moxie & Mettle: What are your day-to-day activities as a Digital Marketing Manager?

Morgan Paley: My role at the moment is very unique as given my background I do a lot of design work on a daily basis, I also support our designer on the larger, strategic projects. I have three of my own accounts, so I have to communicate and manage their expectations. My main focus is to manage, carry out and report on campaigns agreed every quarter.

Moxie & Mettle: What has been the most important thing you have learnt throughout your career?

Morgan Paley: It’s not what you know, but who you know… but it helps if you know a bit!

Moxie & Mettle: Have you had any setbacks? How did you overcome them?

Morgan Paley: Finishing University and finding a job that I wanted was challenging, which was mainly due to having very little experience in the industry. To overcome this, I had to accept that the role I took was never going to be permanent and was purely to gain experience.

Moxie & Mettle: Are there any benefits of working agency compared to in-house in your opinion?

Morgan Paley: Working at an agency is much more exciting as I am working with businesses in multiple industries. That being said, the workload is a lot higher than being in-house!

Moxie & Mettle: What advice can you share that might help those who are looking to pursue a career in digital marketing?

Morgan Paley: Get as much design experience as you can, it will do you a huge favour.

Moxie & Mettle: In your opinion, what are the top 3 skills it takes to succeed as a Digital Marketing Manager?

Morgan Paley: Communication, confidence and the ability to manage expectations.

Ads that got us talking this June

Ads that got us talking this June

A talking point on Social Media Week Bristol last month, was the effectiveness of authenticity in social media, adverts and so on. We feel inspired by authentic brands and emotionally invested in their success, so we buy their products even when there might be less expensive alternatives. Companies perceived to be genuine and authentic build brand loyalty and tend to be more profitable.

The chosen ads do just this, so check them out.

Budweiser

Heinken

Father’s Day campaign

It’s clear that stepfathers don’t always have it easy, and children aren’t still very accepting. Budweiser, in their new emotional Father’s Day film, looks to shine an unexpected light on fatherhood and toast stepfathers that stepped up and became role models. It documents three REAL family’s heartfelt stories who surprise their dads by legally removing the ‘step’ from their titles.

This campaign is to not only celebrate stepdads but also to raise money for the stepfamily foundation, a non-profit that lends a helping hand to blended families.

You can watch here.

Heinz

Ed 1

Who doesn’t want to see Ed Sheeran eat some ketchup?

Ed Sheeran helps mark 150 years for Heinz by starring in this brilliant, authentic Tomato Ketchup ad. The scenario is based on a real event that led Sheeran, who thought it would make a good ad, to contact Heinz through Instagram. As well as starring in it, Sheeran wrote and directed the spot.

This is their first advert, but we’re hoping more will follow. After all, Heinz and Sheeran are both now internationally recognised brands.

A day in the life of a: Digital Marketing Manager – our chat with Taylor Bragg from JMP UK

A day in the life of a: Digital Marketing Manager – our chat with Taylor Bragg from JMP UK

In light of Social Media Week Bristol, Moxie & Mettle understand digital marketing is more important today more than ever before. Therefore, we wanted to chat with some digital marketing experts about their experiences within their roles. 

So, meet Taylor Bragg, she is the Digital Marketing Manager at JMP UK, a progressive, creative content and communications agency based in Bristol. Having started her career in Journalism, Taylor talks us through her journey so far, her experiences agency vs client-side, and the setbacks she’s had to overcome transitioning from one field to another. 

Moxie & Mettle: Tell us about your career journey; how have you got to where you are now?

Taylor Bragg: I started as a Journalist writing about technology and business. During this time, I found a real interest in writing about brand marketing and the effect of the ever-growing digital world on businesses around the globe. It was then that I realised how I’d love to put my knowledge into action. 

Moxie & Mettle: What are your day-to-day activities as a Digital Marketing Manager? 

Taylor Bragg: As I work for an agency, no day is ever the same! One day I could be creating social content plans for a fitness studio, the next I could be conducting video interviews with the public for another client, and another day I could be planning the design and copy for our new website. I love the variety of tasks I get to perform as it really keeps the job interesting!

Moxie & Mettle: What has been the most important thing you have learnt throughout your career?

Taylor Bragg: To keep on top of the latest industry news and trends. With the digital space constantly changing and evolving, if you don’t keep updated then you’ll struggle to get the results you want. 

Moxie & Mettle: Have you had any setbacks?  How did you overcome them?

Taylor Bragg: Working for an agency, it’s a very fast-paced environment with many different projects going on for various clients at the same time. And so, at times, it can be hard to juggle. I’ve learned that it’s crucial to be organised and focus on one thing at a time. Rushing through things and stressing will only lead to weak results.

Moxie & Mettle: Are there any benefits of working agency compared to client-side in your opinion?

Taylor Bragg: I touched upon this in my previous answer, but I think the main benefit is the variety of projects you get to work on. Each client can be so different and from varying industries such as sport, fitness, and technology. As a result, I really get to expand my skillsets in a range of areas. Working with so many different clients also allows me to build really great relationships.

Moxie & Mettle: What advice can you share that might help those who are looking to pursue a career as a Digital Marketing Manager?

Taylor Bragg: My advice would be to either work for an agency first in order to get a feel for different types of clients and industries, or to choose an area you feel passionate about. If you end up working for a company that you have no real interest in, you may struggle to be creative when it comes to growing the business.

Stay on top of industry news. Be sure to follow major digital marketing sites and influential people on social media. As the major social media goliaths such as Google, Facebook and Twitter regularly tweak their paid advertising platforms and algorithms, it could be a challenge if you don’t keep on top of the latest changes.

Finally, dare to be different and don’t be afraid to fail. Marketing is all about trying new things and some of the most successful campaigns have been a result of one person trying out an idea no one has dared to try before.  

Moxie & Mettle: In your opinion, what are the top 3 skills it takes to succeed as a Digital Marketing Manager?

Taylor Bragg: A mix of creativity and analytical abilities, good visual storytelling abilities and agility
