What we did this month: September
Phew – where has September gone?! We’ve had an extra-busy month, with work trips abroad, everyone going on holiday and new clients galore!
The month started with the very glamorous Licensing Awards at the Grosvenor Hotel in London, which was actually a working event as Lisa and Megan went along to live-tweet the winners! They enjoyed celebrating with all of the worthy award winners, although the most memorable moment has to be carrying a blow-up helium Lightning McQueen balloon through Kings Cross at 1am in the morning to take home for Toby!
Table for two?!
All of the team bar Megan also went on well-earned breaks in September, with Hetty’s annual Ibiza trip full of pure relaxation (and a little bit of partying!), Katie spending a long weekend in beautiful Nice, Chloe jetting off to Spain for her mum’s birthday, and Lisa having a girly holiday in the South of France – we’ve been taking Bump international this month!
Holidays over, the hard work back in the office continued, with exciting new product launches from Bravado with their Classic Nursing Cami, and the new Celebration of European Wildlife Collection from Poco Nido. Chloe also attended a first aid class from our new client Mini First Aid and certainly left feeling confident with knowing some life-saving skills! We’ve also been building hype for the gorgeous new travel system from Ickle Bubba, and also gearing up for International Babywearing Week which started on the 30th September.
With eco-friendly products being so ‘fashionable’ currently, what better time for The Nappy Gurus to relaunch their national network of reusable nappy experts? Megan worked hard to secure the brand some fantastic radio coverage, including an interview on a programme with 12 million listeners worldwide which was amazing!
Lisa and Chloe also spent two days in Cologne at the annual international nursery fair, Kind und Jugend. It was a busy two days with back to back meetings, but it was fab to meet our clients and get sneak peeks at their exciting new launches and also catch up with some wonderful journalists. We even managed to sneak in a beer or two!
Somewhere in amongst all of the hard client work this September, Toby started school and Lisa and Jack started packing up their house ready to move at the start of October, a whole mile down the road!
October means only one thing in Katie’s mind, Halloween! We’ve been busy pitching our client’s fab products for Halloween features, and also included super fun themed posts in our social planning! We also started working with fab new bespoke kid’s event brand STRYDE, so if you’re looking for a party, you know where to go!
Next up for team bump is new product launches, including a super exciting new Medela product, and we’re sure to feel super festive decorating the office for Halloween – how will you be celebrating?!
