Last night Garry and I had the great pleasure of attending Penny Power’s launch of her Social Digital Media Academy. This is an apprentice scheme that Penny has set up with the aim of utilising the skills of the young to help them with their future but also utilising their skills to help business comprehend the change in the world that is ‘social media’ and how best to make use of it with their businesses. We are of course very excited about it as we already have a brilliant apprentice ‘Thegz’ and are very keen that she be able to attend the best course possible and this one is just ideal
The first course will take place at the Goldsmith Centre
in Stevenage which is a great fresh college and not too far from Enfield, The thing we loved about the scheme is that It has been put together by someone who knows all about social media, and has been a part of the internet revolution since the late 90’s – namely Penny Power. When we met Penny earlier this year she did such an insightful interview with Garry that it blew me away.(see below) The use of her language was so pertinent, saying that companies have been grossly careless in not compare viagra prices incorporating the internet into their
brand more, and therefore losing business and indeed having to close down. The week of the interview I believe it had been announced that Clinton Cards had gone and this evening Penny showed a slide of them alongside the hugely successful Moonpig.. why didn’t Clinton embrace this new world?
Penny did a brilliant presentation that really told the story of where the world is heading today and really got across the point that for businesses to survive in the future they really will need to know how to harness the power of the internet and social media. As we are becoming more aware, Social Media doesn’t really begin to cover it, it is really all things digital that are needed to work in tandem to give your business the best chance of riding this wave and what better way to do it than to employ an apprentice who knows this world already.
We are hugely excited about this new endeavor and were thrilled to be there last night for its launch.
Thanks very much, Penny we look forward very much to seeing where this will take us.

Always embracing digital disruption – Special interest in changes in consumer behavior, how will they impact on the business
Loving social media was born from a love of digital communication and the passion for guerrilla marketing over 15 years ago I discovered Myspace and then Facebook. They did wonders for my optical business in then evolved for me doing friends social media then hiring an apprentice her salary was covered for all the friends and colleagues social media. In 2019 the opticians (Goodlooking Optics) that I owned merged with another optician the merge didn’t go perfectly and there was a conflict so I decided to completely devote myself to love social media. in January of 2019 I sold all the customers of loving social media in preparation for this big merge which I then regretted. today loving social media has 24 clients a pure passion of getting your website optimised the Page 1 with a joined up approach using social PPC And SEO Like all self-respecting digital companies, we know that we are always learning because things are always changing!
