In our big, interconnected world, where businesses like ours often operate beyond borders, the essence of local engagement cannot be emphasised enough. Just as our clients derive value from focusing on their Digital Brand Governance and improving their Share of Voice in the digital sphere with our expertise, we are also passionate about making a positive impact right here in our hometowns. We are regular supporters and a huge fan of numerous local events including Guildford Book Festival.
Guildford Book Festival
The Guildford Book Festival has become a hallmark event in Guildford, Surrey every October since 1989. Over the years it has evolved into a hub promoting literature, creative expression, and intellectual conversations. The festival features several events such as History Day, Reader’s Day, and author signings and became a platform for both local emerging talents and world-renowned authors.
More than Just Books
While books are an important part of the festival, there are several other activities and engagements including thought-provoking panel discussions, workshops, author signings, and even a creative writing course to enhance participants’ literary skills. The Guildford Book Festival goes beyond books, offering the community a place for learning and connection.
Our Growing Involvement
We are proud Digital Sponsors of the Guildford Book Festival, with our partnership with the charity having begun five years ago. We recognised an opportunity to combine our expertise in Digital Brand Visibility with a renowned local event, establishing our ties with the local community. Not only do we sponsor a few author events, but also act as the Digital Sponsors of the entire festival as part of our commitment and support.
The Lasting Social Impact
Our five-year collaboration with the festival has been nothing short of transformative. We have observed how the Guildford Book Festival evolved over the years and experienced our own growth as active community partners.
Alongside our sponsorship of the Festivals, we are also Corporate Ambassadors for Guildford Philanthropy and supporters of the Surrey Business School and Community Foundation for Surrey. The partnership with Surrey Business School involves the mutual commitment to support each other in our strategic aims through collaboration and knowledge exchange. As Corporate Ambassadors for Guildford Philanthropy we don’t only offer funding but expertise, volunteer hours and contact networks to help support the work Guildford Philanthropy undertakes in the local community. Additionally, we are regular sponsors of a number of local charities and events, including Guildford Jazz, providing digital marketing support through website creation and brand consultancy,
Looking ahead, we envision deepening these partnerships and constantly looking for ways to give back to our local community. As we help international brands improve their Digital Brand Governance and track their Share of Voice, we are equally committed to ensuring our voice resonates positively with local and kind footprint.
