Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

This will be last blog for 2011. The next time I write it will be 2012!

There are only 5 working hours left and then the KDM office will close for the Christmas and New Year break – although Kevin is likely to pop in to the office as he’s a bit of a workaholic!!

Here at KDM we’ve had a great year – we’ve worked with some great clients (both old and new), had some weird and wonderful enquiries and created some excellent events (even if we say so ourselves).

Here are our highlights of 2011:

1. New Recruits – 2011 saw four new recruits as Claire, Katie, Jo and Vivian all joined the company. All recruits have settled in very nicely and now very much part of the KDM team.

2. BIG Product Launch – Between 26th May and 21st July 2011 KDM managed the UK wide product launch for a leading boiler manufacturer, with 24 events at different locations in 8 weeks. Regarded as a great success across the company and within the industry, the client has proposed to realign their marketing budget away from exhibitions to live events as a more successful means of communication with installers in line with feedback from the event.

3. Emerald Partner Status with Donna Louise Trust – KDM have donated over £10,000 to the charity, which provides a range of specialist care and support for children with a shortened life expectancy and their families, over the last two years including supporting them with their annual summer ball.

4. New Website – OK so it hasn’t been launched to the general public yet but work on the brand new KDM website started in earnest at the end of June and will be launched (fingers crossed) in early 2012.

5. Charity Support – KDM have been proud to support a number of charities with their fundraising efforts including the British Heart Foundation, the Donna Louise Trust, Breast Cancer Awareness, Children in Need, Comic Relief, the Poppy Appeal and Douglas Macmillan.

6. New Events – Weird and wonderful enquiries meant KDM developed the following new team building events, corporate entertainment and themed events and parties: Olympian Challenge, Rollercoaster (hour long icebreaker), Fairyball Themed Evening, Cirque du Soleil Theme Evening (including Rope Performer and Accordion Player), Jazzmatazz Charity Summer Ball, Dry Stone Walling (client’s fixed a wall on the Chatsworth Estate), Artistic Challenge (teams recreate works of art such as Birth of Venus by Botticelli and yes guests do take their kit off!).

7. Over 500 Events – KDM prepared, planned, organised, managed and ran over 500 events in 2011 – we’re hoping for even more in 2012

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year on behalf of everyone at KDM Events!
