Birthday blog post – SOCIATE turns 5
This isn’t just any blog post – it’s our 5th birthday blog post.
A lot’s changed since we last blew out the candles on our birthday cake but the best bits have stayed the same or got even better. Here is what SOCIATE has been up to since we last had a birthday catch up!
We planted our flag in the UK
With our headquarters in Dubai, SOCIATE is thrilled to have launched a creative arm in the UK. Our work adventures have taken us from London to Southampton, and we have had the pleasure of working with a handful of brilliant brands. With copywriting at the forefront of the services our UK branch is offering, if you know someone looking for a word wizard to magic up anything from their dusty old website to their desert-dry social media captions, drop us a line at [email protected]
We broke personal revenue records
2020 kicked off on a promising note. Nothing is more exciting than charting the growth of a company – from startup to SME and beyond. January and February were our best-performing months.
#teamSOCIATE welcomed new members
Our marketing and public relations team have expanded in recent months. We’re delighted to welcome Lovely Castillejo – Office Angel and Multitasker Extraordinaire, Emjay Fernandez – Content Strategist and Shutterbug, Sameeta Rajpal – Social Media Executive and Hashtag Hustler, Sohail Patel – Social Media Manager and Ad Ninja, and Saakshi Khubani – Junior PR Executive and Trend Spotter.
We have been working from home
As the pandemic picked up in the UAE, we unplugged from our humble headquarters in JLT and worked from home. We’re still on the fence about how we feel about it, you’ll agree that it has its perks and drawbacks.
We put a “new normal” spin on our workshops
The power of technology and community came together to inspire our new series of PR and marketing webinars. Hosted every week by our founder, Rosa, and our Senior PR Executive, Tazeen Jafri, these free and paid webinars explore the basics and complexities of our industry.
Stay tuned to @sociate.ae to snag a seat at our next webinar.
We launched a digital PR platform – Your PR Guru
A free-for-all community space that welcomes questions and insights from media students, interns, communications professionals, executives, senior management, and beyond – Your PR Guru has gathered a growing following. Join our group on Facebook for the latest updates on our industry, ponderings about current trends, and much more. Feel free to post on the group with questions and ideas too!
2020 has been interesting, to say the least. Despite the challenges that have cropped up, we have persevered with force and flexibility. Thank you for being a part of our journey. Here’s to the next five years!
