HERE at SilverDisc we've recently held our annual summer staff family party at Wicksteed Park.
'Wickies' is a great destination as it's near our Kettering office and such a family-friendly environment, suitable for kids of all ages. We love it there, so much so that I live almost in the grounds - Wicksteed Park is my landlord and so my children had many happy times in the park whilst growing up.
Just as Wicksteed Park is one of the oldest theme parks in the country, SilverDisc is one of the oldest full service digital marketing agencies in the country - and it's been quite a ride for us too! Now in our 25th year, we will celebrate our silver anniversary in March 2018.
At SilverDisc, we've found Northamptonshire, and Kettering in particular, to be a great base for our business since we moved here in 1998. Our headquarters is just off the A14, on the Kettering Venture Park near the RCI building, Kettering Park Hotel and Odeon cinema, which makes it very convenient for staff to get to and means that we can recruit top quality people from a wide area. We also have many local clients across the county, including four within a five minute walk of our offices. And, of course, we are the digital marketing partner of Business Times.
We're not only about local business, though. We also offer a national and international perspective. We have clients across the UK and around the world, and we have a satellite office in Santiago, Chile. Our UK clients include RAC, Four Seasons Healthcare and Be Wiser, one of the UK's fastest growing private lines insurance brokers.
Locally, we're determined to help Northamptonshire business unlock the value of digital technology. We recognise that, although digital marketing channels now account for more than 50 per cent of typical marketing spend, a big threat to that value is cyber security. Throughout our 24 year history, we have put speed and security at the heart of all of our digital marketing efforts. More recently, we have hosted a prominent cyber security conference in Northampton and become founder members of the Northamptonshire Cyber Security Forum, an initiative between the Northants PCC, police, networking organisations and local businesses to improve awareness of cyber security issues and promote security best practices.
So if you're looking for an established, secure, reliable, local digital marketing partner, you could look far and wide, but you need look no further than SilverDisc in Kettering.
