We may have mentioned it once or twice (!) but we have been working for the past year on the committee of business networking group, JCI Cambridge. JCI is the Junior Chamber International, a global organisation that supports business networking and development for young entrepreneurs and professionals under the age of 40. As marketing consultants in Cambridge (and under 40, just!) we are proud to support the network.
Emerald Frog Marketing has been regularly promoting the group through marketing and PR activities such as email campaigns, press releases, finding speakers and, most recently, writing the content and optimising the new JCI Cambridge website due to go live very soon. Membership of the Cambridge Chamber in that time has grown from a handful of members to now around forty due to the marketing programme and the hard work and dedication of all members of the committee.
Back in December, at the UK conference for JCI Chambers nationally, JCI Cambridge won the award for “Best Marketing and PR” and “Best Membership Recruitment” – so we are pretty chuffed with that!
So, imagine our little froggy faces lighting up when we got the news our award submission is being put forward (along with “Best Membership Recruitment”) at the European Conference at the beginning of June in Catalonia. We can but hope; but know we are up against some VERY strong competition internationally. Even so, to be European Award Nominated is a huge achievement!
Wish us luck!
