2016 has kicked off with a bang for the Conscious Communications team and we are thrilled to share three exciting developments with you.
We were pleased to have been featured in the local and PR trade news this week further to announcing that we have been appointed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) to manage its public relations activities across the Africa, Europe and Middle East region. The remit covers the breadth of the IB Continuum – Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme, Diploma Programme, and the newest addition, the Career-related Programme.
The team is very proud to have been selected to support IB in delivering its exciting plans for the coming year. The IB is internationally recognised as a gold-standard in education, delivering excellent breadth and depth of knowledge across all subjects, as well as the highly regarded Core.
Being based in Cambridge we are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with locally-based world-renowned organisations such as Cambridge University Press, and this month we have been busy preparing to launch Cambridge University Press’ new reading scheme – for young children for whom English may be their native or additional language – Cambridge Reading Adventures.
Cambridge University Press has teamed up with the UCL Institute of Education to develop the 90-book series, which features fictional tales, historically based stories and animal adventures, and contains culturally relevant reading material for children around the world. The series has been written by revered children’s authors including Lauri Kubuitsile, Jonathan and Angela Scott and Ian Whybrow. Children can expect to start their reading adventures as soon as the books arrive in schools in February!
www.consciouscomms.com has had a facelift! For those of you who were fond of our old website we hope you will appreciate the retained focus on our values. Our favourite aspects of the new look are the refreshing use of vibrant colours and the new and improved navigation. We get excited about websites – take a look at the ‘layers’!
We have gone live this week so, for anyone with a keen interest, we warmly welcome feedback on your experience of using the new website. If you feel inspired to update your own website, be encouraged that, with our help, a new website is easier to create than you might think. Please do get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org – we would love to hear your feedback.
