Welcome to the latest edition of Brightside from OWB.

January is already over and the annual day of love is upon us once again. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we are showing our clients some love covering the great work we’ve done for two clients recently; Princess Motor Yacht Sales and CPM People.

In the run up to the rugby Six Nations, I smooth talked England International flanker and fitness entrepreneur, James Haskell as we discussed how video amplification has excelled his business’ online social media presence. We also share our top five tips for nailing that winning industry award entry.

All the love from our team,

CPM People

Our client, CPM People is an international provider of Employment, Payroll, HR and Compliance solutions for Employers, Agencies and Consultants. Their Professional Employer Organisation (PEO) service model is first to market here in the UK and Europe.

Upon launching their complete rebrand and slick new website at the end of last year, Director, Carlos Ruiz came in for a 2017 brainstorm in January and we couldn’t be happier with the direction we’re heading in together.

“I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to say how grateful I am for the advice, ideas and input you all made today. I felt really good knowing that the partnership is growing and you are beginning to understand our business model and can add real value and quality input in our discussions in our effort to grow knowledge about the PEO business model in the UK and Europe.
A sincere thank you and I look forward to doing it again in a few months’ time.
Cheers, Carlos.”
