Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021!
With everything that has happened over the past year, we thought we’d take a quick look back at 2020 and a look ahead to what’s in store at Vision One for 2021. It’s certainly not been the best year for most of us, but here are a few moments that brought us a little joy, so sit back and enjoy this peek into the not so distant past!
New Team Arrivals
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic and the devastating impact it has had on many lives, it is great that we are able to continue offering opportunities for new members to join the Vision One team! At the beginning of the year, Helen Mole joined us to help bolster our client development team. We’ve also welcomed Raluca Bobutanu into our research team, who has made an immediate impact specialising in qualitative research and online focus groups. Most recently, in December we were also joined by Mollie Hannigan, our latest Digital Marketer.
Alongside our new team members, some of our staff decided to be pioneers, being the first in the 21 years of Vision One to welcome a child into the world! Just like London busses, we were not only blessed with one but rather three new babies! Not too long now till we have our very own mini Vision One 5-a-side football team!
Working from home
Like many other businesses, we have been busy working from home for the past nine months – discovering that it works much better than we first thought!
Nevertheless, it may have passed your attention that we have relocated our Liverpool Office to Mann Island and the wonderful location that is the Albert Dock. Mann Island is home to many of the city’s best creative and tech-driven companies. Granted, we’ve not been able to maximise the use of our prime real estate, but we’re all optimistic that we’ll be back soon!
We are always grateful for the opportunity of working alongside so many great brands and businesses and delighted to be their trusted partner in many cases. We love to promote the wonderful work these brands do – please check out our Twitter for all the latest news. Below are just some of the exceptional brands we have the pleasure in partnering with this year:
“BEST MARKET RESEARCH
Amongst the uncertainty and confusion this year, we were delighted to pick up several awards thanks to the incredible team here at Vision One. Of particular note, we won The Drum Recommends award for “Best Market Research Agency (2020)”. What makes this particularly special is that this is the second time in three years, and we are the only agency to have achieved this.
With our Charity Walk up Snowdon delayed once again until 2021, we switched this up and tied it in within our Christmas Party, and decided to host a Murder Mystery Whodunnit, with special thanks to Macmillan for producing such an excellent dossier for us to be able to raise money for such a special charity. The night was a hit with our whole staff and involved some fabulous acting, accents and outfits, raising a grand amount of £400 for our antics!
The Year Ahead
Looking forward to 2021, we have been busy developing some exciting new products, which we look forward to releasing later this year. Finally, we would like to sign off this message by saying a big ‘Thank You’ to the NHS and all the frontline workers who have kept us all going. We wish everyone the very best for 2021 and a safe and prosperous year.
