At Golley Slater, we believe the most creative, effective campaigns come from original thinking.
Our regular round-up of what’s been going on in the Golley Slater Cardiff office over the last seven days.
#1 Creative Cardiff visited us for a behind the scenes look
— CreativeCardiff (@CreativeCardiff) July 4, 2017
Creative Cardiff launched their latest event “Access All Areas” with us, giving us the opportunity to open our doors and welcome Cardiff’s wider creative community for an exclusive ‘through the key hole’ experience. They got to find out more about what we do, how we do it and our creative roots in the city and we got the chance to meet more of our fantastic cities creative talent. After chatting through some of our campaigns and adverts while indulging over pastries supplied by Nine Yards, the morning was rounded up by a tour of our workspace and a chance to mingle. Interested in joining? Sign up here to find out more about the upcoming events!
#2 Golley Slater staff became CSI investigators for the day!

A set of teeth, a body bag and a murder weapon are just some of the crucial pieces of evidence we had to collect from around our manor (Cardiff city centre) as teams embarked on their mission to find the suspect of a murder (made up of course!) This team-building exercise called for imagination, group work and a lot of walking in the sunshine! As well as some help from local businesses in the centre who kindly helped with our missions, we ended our team building day at our CSI HQ (Revolution bar) for some great food and cocktails!
#3 We’re bringing welsh living to big city life!
Our media team has placed Visit Wales latest ads in high profile locations in London on TV and in key publications. The ads are displayed on Waterloo Motion, the largest digital screen in the UK, in the UK’ s busiest station. The campaign will also feature in the Evening Standard, Metro and on Sky TV. The aim is to drive more visitors from the big cities to Wales across the summer. Goodbye expensive holidays and long journeys and hello staycation!
#4 Our content & social media manager completed her judging duties for the CIPR
— JaneChicoMendes (@JaneChicoMendes) July 2, 2017
On Monday, our content & social media manager, Jane, joined five other Welsh PR professionals to help judge the Scottish entries for the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ PRide awards. Each year, independent teams of judges are assembled across the UK, and tasked with judging the entries from another part of the country. Every year we have someone from Golley Slater on the Welsh contingent, and this year it was Jane’s turn to score more than fifty Scottish entries and decide which campaigns would be taking the gold and silver awards in Glasgow later this year.
