How the Business Got Started

After several evolutions.

Before starting the business, Baker says that she was made “redundant” at her previous job. This led her to take the dive into business ownership. Initially, she started the company as a PR firm. But it evolved over time into a focus mainly on video content. However, that evolution is what led to the major focus the team has on strategy and impact today.

Biggest Win

Winning 3x employer awards.

Baker says, “Our industry is so hard when it comes to attracting talent and we are up against some really big companies so this means a lot!”

Biggest Risk

Acquiring another business.

Baker says the decision to grow in this way came last year, along with major financial implications.

She adds, “It could have bankrupt us if it went wrong but it didn’t!”

Getting more attention.

Baker explains, “I would invest in a huge publicity stunt to put us on the map!”

Company Policy

All dogs allowed.

Baker says, “We have an open door policy when it comes to dogs – at our heyday we had 7 dogs in our small office.”
