A lot can happen in a year… and a lot has!

by Janine McCarthy /

My first year at BDB has been anything but dull, let me tell you that.

A year of new challenges, experiences, successes and even a promotion! Developing new skills and building on existing ones.

One thing I can say about BDB is that there is certainly no lack of expertise. There is unrivalled talent here and through regular training sessions we all get to share our knowledge and grow as a team. I recently had the opportunity to lead a very hands on training session in print production, testing the team on paper weights, textures, binding, print techniques and all things in between. I hope to give a follow up session in the coming year to share this ever growing knowledge.

When I started as Production Executive a year ago, I had no digital experience. Now I am leading on digital projects for some of our biggest clients. BDB is committed to making its employees the best they can be, and I am proof that in such a short space of time and with the support of a strong team we can achieve great things.

The past year has seen BDB win several new clients and seen significant grown and opportunity within our existing client base. From rebranding projects for existing clients to the production of whitepapers, websites, animated videos and trade show elements – I have been lucky enough to work across a diverse portfolio.

It’s not all work. To celebrate BDB’s 30th birthday we were treated with a trip to Bruges!! Needless to say, not many things top that! I think I can speak for the whole team when I say we won’t be forgetting that one any time soon.

With the recent MBO here at BDB the next year looks to be an exciting one. I look forward to updating you in a year on the undoubted growth and success of the business and my own personal development and growth as part of the BDB family.

We’re always on the lookout for skilled and talented people at BDB. If you’re interested in starting a career with the UK’s 2nd fastest growing marcomms agency, email ideasthatconnect@bdb.co.uk
