Wow! its April Already: Spring Updates

Time Flies

Can you believe we are already in the Spring of 2012 on the second day of April? They say time waits for no man and especially when you are busy and having fun being busy!

Anyway, the purpose of this quick blog update is just to give quick run down of YEP media’s whereabouts, what we’ve been up to and where we are heading the next few months of this fast disappearing year, and we thought we would give this blog a bit of a transformation spring clean to bring in spring time.

Online Media Consulting

So as you may have noticed this blog site has seen nothing but digital tumble weed for the past month because the YEP team work part time and have also been doing bits and pieces for some clients.

We thought we would share one example of what we’ve been busy doing; the results of a Digital Media and Blogging workshop we delivered for a group of young people over at The Future Melting Pot who are working on a project investigating the reasons behind the August 2011 riots. You can check out their work here. This group will be holding an enquiry at the Council House this Thursday where the young people will have a round table discussion with senior leaders about those horrendous occurrences last year.

Unleash Your Inner Supernova

Our highlight for the month of March has to have been helping to host a pretty amazing event along with Bonafide Supernova, which is part of the collective of fashion blogs we are channelling our creative media skills into developing.

The Bonafide Supernova team held their first ever event at The Studio Birmingham in a bid to spark enthusiasm and present a new way of networking for the modern day woman of the ‘future’. Their next event will be taking place in May 2012 and will be all about the Future of Fashion PR so stay tuned for more details on that!
