Koobr finalists for Marketing Campaign of the Year Award

By | September 17th, 2017|Marketing, News|

Team Koobr is delighted to announce that we are through to the finals at this year’s East Midlands Chamber Business Awards.

After being shortlisted for Marketing Campaign of the Year 2017, we are proud to announce that Koobr is through to the Derbyshire finals at this year’s East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) Business Awards.

Koobr’s Managing Director, Craig Barker, was in attendance at the Chamber President’s Summer Celebration where this year’s finalists were revealed in June: “This is the second year we’ve been shortlisted, and our first year going through to the finals — we’ve certainly progressed as a company during that space of time.”

“To be recognised not just for the quality of our work, but also the marketing success it has brought our customers, it really means a lot. We’re a creative agency, but we’re also extremely focussed on delivering tangible results. We work very hard to help our clients get the results they are looking for in their marketing activities, and that’s what we live for as a team – getting through to the finals for Marketing Campaign of the Year is the icing on the cake.”

Speaking of cake, Team Koobr is looking forward to the Derbyshire gala dinner where we’ll be out in full force to celebrate with our fellow finalists where the winners across 11 award categories will be announced at the 3aaa County Ground in September.

Delivering the results our clients look for in their marketing activities is what we live for. Winning Marketing Campaign of the Year would be the icing on the cake.

“More than anything, I’m thrilled for the team,” says Craig. “I’m privileged to say that I work with a group of tremendously talented and creative people. These awards are a real testament to the innovation and hard work put in by businesses across the counties. The standard this year has been extremely high, so we’d also like to congratulate everybody who was shortlisted and wish all the finalists the best of luck on the night.”a

Team Koobr completes the Ramathon — Thank you to everybody who supported us

By | September 17th, 2017|News|

After weeks of training, semi-strict dieting, and running up and down steps a la Rocky Balboa, Team Koobr took part in this year’s Ramathon. Here’s how we got on.

First off, we want to express our gratitude for everybody’s kind messages and generous donations. We are truly overwhelmed by the support Team Koobr received during this year’s Ramathon — helping us to raise more than £500.00 for Asthma UK.

In an earlier blog post, Koobr’s Managing Director, Craig Barker, talked about why this was a very worthy and personal cause. So, a great big Thank You to all who helped us to exceed our goal. We could never have possibly done this without you.

Secondly, we would like to say Well Done to all the runners and race organisers. It was a touching display, and an absolute privilege to run alongside the fantastic people of Derby. With so many worthwhile causes being supported on the day, it really made us proud to be part of such a positive and inspirational city.

Friendly faces across the finish line

In addition to all the friendly faces cheering us on from crowds, it was a pleasure to see quite a few friends of Koobr — Yvonne Gorman from Essential Print Services, Sean Price from RDS Global, and Rob Hodgkinson from Hodgkinson Builders — also fundraising for good causes.

Both Craig and Rebecca, Koobr’s Marketing Manager, managed to beat their earlier predicted times and finished the thirteen miles in around two hours twenty minutes. Which just goes to show that all that extra training and clean eating does pay off. They’ve since had a well-deserved drink, though, to celebrate, and a couple of large pizzas to make up for lost time.

And it’s fair to say they’ll be easing off on the running. Until next year, at least.
