What's New

Inside the industry and inside the agency

The Wickedweb team had a fabulous evening at Asia de Cuba, St Martins Lane to celebrate this year’s festivities.  It was a great excuse to get dressed up and let our hair down...even the red carpet was out upon our arrival!  (It was then apparent that the paparazzi were after Lily Allen who was right behind us).

In fact, it turned out to be a very star studded affair indeed due to the English National Ballet holding a VIP reception to launch the Christmas season on the same night - nothing like The Nutcracker to get in the Christmas mood!

Impressive food, jovial company and lots of dancing afterwards – the perfect Christmas party!

Wickedweb is delighted to announce that we have been appointed by Baker Tilly International - a leading global network of over 150 accountancy and business advisory firms, across 120 countries.

The brief is to transfer the management of the current website and extranet solutions into Wickedweb’s control and our focus will begin on this transition phase.  The solutions will harness the potential of the existing Umbraco platform.

Once the transition is complete Wickedweb will work to remedy key issues with the current systems and then look to deliver added value to the member firms and customers through enhanced and new functionality.

Wickedweb’s Client Services Director for Baker Tilly International, Neil Narain, comments:  “The key drivers behind this move are service levels, technical expertise and stability of technology which are current concerns for Baker Tilly International.  As their digital partner, Wickedweb will utilise our award winning experience in the business to business sector to enhance these online solutions and further engage the target audiences.  We look forward to creating a solution that is consistent across the brand and one that will elevate ROI for the business”.

It's the day of the Wickedweb Christmas party at London's Asia di Cuba and preparations for a festive afternoon are well underway. And we are not just talking copious hairspray! Yes it is that time of year again for Secret Santa...and the gifts look very enticing under the tree.

(Only Niki knows who picked who, and so the rest of team have a surprise in store).  

Once the gifts have been opened around the tree we will all make our way to the Light Bar for pre-dinner drinks, but not before we have tucked in to the mulled wine and mince pies...

Now personally I would prefer a little more Christmas Buble, but Glen isn't so keen.  Still, can't have it all I guess!

Here's to a fantastic evening, with more pictures to follow.

Hot on the heels of Facebook Timeline and Google+ brand pages is the major relaunch of Twitter with a host of new features. Gone are the likes of ‘mentions’, ‘search’ and ‘profile’ and in comes ‘connect’, ‘discover’ and ‘me’. Although many brands already have Twitter accounts this update brings brand pages with more functionality and interactive with followers. Will this be enough to compete with Facebook? A snapshot of Mashable’s Poll illustrates the changes are going down well!

Here's a few snap shots of what some Brands are doing with their new pages.

Following last year’s bake off for Macmillan, we decided to do it all again this year – and what a feast for the eyes (and tummies)!  Wickedwebbers have been busy in the kitchen baking their specialities and it is an impressive display: we have gingerbread cookies, chocolate and apricot sponge cake, cupcakes, Yule log, banoffee cake, Candy Sushi and gingerbread brownies to name a few!

The team can help themselves to this fabulous fare in return for a donation to our chosen charity this Christmas, the Orpheus Centre.  This charity promotes transition into independent living, and provides opportunities for young disabled adults to encourage personal development through performing arts.  This helps them gain the skills to live independently in the community and to make informed choices about their future.

The money we raise for the Orpheus Centre will be the icing on the cake! (see what we did there?)
