The #29ERS Show Episode 34

 

SAMH

We paid our neighbours at Cup Glasgow a visit this week. They kindly hosted a shoot with SAMH for their latest Ambassador videos that we’re creating with them.

The Scottish Association for Mental Health (or SAMH) are Scotland’s leading mental health charity. In a special video, three people shared the story of their own mental health issues in a chat with one of the charity’s ambassadors, Hardeep Singh Kohli.

We caught up with Alison Gilchrist from SAMH to discuss what the charity wanted to achieve with these videos. Alison explained that video was the best medium for the story they wanted to tell, as it’s is personal and helped others to identify better with the individuals. Video allows people to connect to a story on an emotional level that a written account cannot.

Hardeep commented how noble it was to see people sharing stories that are deeply personal with the aim of helping others who may be in a similar situation.

Xtreme Karting

Gary and Jake travelled through to Edinburgh on Monday to meet with the team at Xtreme Karting. You may recall back in Episode 32 that they won a feature on the show for best pitch at our networking event.

Well here it is!

Xtreme Karting has two karting centres in Scotland, both of which have been independently rated by Visit Scotland as 5 Star Visitor Attractions. Their centre in Falkirk is the first in Scotland to be rated 5 stars by Visit Scotland, while their Edinburgh track is the only 5 star centre in the area.

AutoRek

We’re delighted to be working with technology company AutoRek to help them attract the very best talent in Scotland and beyond. In this week’s show we throw open our doors and roll out the red carpet for the team to come and see the premier of the new video that we’ve created for them, and a preview of their careers website.

If you are familiar with 29studios then you’re probably well aware we know how to throw a good party. And our evening with AutoRek was no exception.

After the video was played there was champagne, cheers, and high-fives all round!

Another happy client!

Glasgow Chamber of Commerce

As a massive Celtic fan, it didn’t take much persuasion from Glasgow Chamber of Commerce to get Gary along to their Behind the Scenes at Celtic Football Club event.

As a strategic and platinum partner of the Chamber, we welcomed the opportunity to check in with the team and network with other businesses while touring the iconic stadium.

We’re looking forward to working with the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce to make more great content throughout the year.

Beatson Foot Golf

Paul Sheerin dropped by for a visit this week. We met Paul through our work with Beatson Cancer Charity. As a survivor of cancer himself, Paul now dedicates his time to raising funds and awareness for the Beatson.

This has led him to set up Beatson Foot Golf.

What’s foot golf?

It’s like golf. Played with footballs.

Always keen to offer our support and guidance, we were ready to sign up a team to take part, and offer Paul advice on how best to promote the event online.

Be sure to follow him on Twitter and like on Facebook.
