During the past week, Battenhall has hosted two live events looking at social media trends for 2022. In what was our ninth annual social media trends briefing, Battenhall’s specialist consultants presented research and insights on the topics that brands, organisations and creators should be aware of in the year ahead.
It’s been a week to remember. First, as part of our transition to a new hybrid working model, we reopened Battenhall’s London HQ and inducted a year’s worth of new team members. Then, on Thursday, some amazing news came in to round off an unprecedented year for our company – PRmoment named us Independent Consultancy of the Year.
It’s one year since the first UK lockdown, when businesses of all shapes and sizes were forced into remote working overnight. While Battenhall has been practising remote and flexible working since we started in 2013, and now operates a total flexible working model, the recent widescale shift got me reflecting on what aspects of PR agency life have changed so much in the past 12 months.
It’s been a year of great change. The global pandemic forced entire populations to stay home, work remotely, and afforded us more time than ever to stare at our screens. As a result, the different ways in which brands and consumers used and interacted with social platforms is reflected in our third annual Instagram Brands 100 report. Here you will get the kicksta reviewed that show all about the traffic boosting tool for social media platforms.
Registration has opened for Battenhall's annual briefing on the future trends in social media. We will be hosting two sessions – the first at 8.30am GMT on Friday, December 11, and a second at 4.30pm GMT, Tuesday, December 15 – to accommodate international audiences.
Lately, I've been thinking about how to build resilience into my approach to work, now we're well into our new world of virtual reality. More importantly, I'm keen to see how that approach can help create a more resilient business in Battenhall, through our team.
