Burgess Hill-based digital marketing agency Rose Media Group (RMG) held an exclusive party for its clients and friends on 7th December to mark its first birthday. RMG was created in December 2016, merging founder Aneela Rose’s eponymous PR agency, founded 14 years ago, and sister social media company Purple Rose Digital into one integrated Group. Around 40 people attended the party, held at RMG’s offices, and were treated to fizz, food and a spectacular 8-tiered cake covered in sugar roses.
Attendees had the chance to hear inspirational speeches from RMG founder and Managing Director, Aneela Rose about the evolution of the business, and consultant Kit Messenger, who works with the RMG team providing coaching and professional development, who challenged the guests to a mind-bending team exercise.
The party-goers were also asked to take part in the ‘Doodles for Oodles’ challenge, by doodling an image of their choice accompanied by a message for the RMG team. Each doodle received was matched by a £1 donation from RMG to its chosen charity for 2017, the Disabilities Trust. The team is volunteering at the Trust’s Burgess Hill centre this year and will use the money raised to donate a gift for the centre.
Aneela Rose commented: “It was fabulous to see so many smiley faces at our party, helping us reflect on our successes since becoming Rose Media Group. As a team, we never stand still and are always looking for the next challenge, the next discipline we can master and above all, different ways that we can help our clients to shine. It’s hard to believe it’s been a full year since we started on this latest phase of our journey, but we already have so many exciting things planned for the future and we are extremely grateful to have such a supportive network of people around us as we grow.”
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
