February has arrived – the month of St. Valentine, stuffing our faces with pancakes and – for us personally – celebrating work anniversaries and new team members!
The Flamingo team are well into the swing of things and the business is already going from strength to strength in 2024. Emma has become well and truly outnumbered by bright, bearded men – more to come on this below...
The start of the year certainly hasn't been quiet, so let's get you up to speed on what's been happening at Flamingo!
Another new team member?
Last month, we introduced our amazing new Creative Executive, Richard, and this month, we have another incredible team member joining the flamboyance…
We’re delighted to welcome George as our Copywriting Executive. As well as in marketing, he has a background in sports journalism and has loved writing all his life! He’s already settling in well and his colleague Oscar is delighted to have another bald vegan around the office 🥬
Here’s what he has to say about joining…
“It’s such a pleasure to be joining a talented team in such a lovely location and working with some exciting clients. I’m enjoying myself already!”

See Emma and the team at the Midlands Business Network Expo
Last month, we shared that Emma will be speaking at the Midlands Business Network Expo, taking place on Thursday 29 February at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
We’re delighted to announce that Emma will be answering your burning marketing queries with her talk, 21 Questions: Your Marketing Questions Answered.
The talk is based on her 30-minute video on the same topic, where Emma shares her ideas about common marketing FAQs on databases, content, AI and so much more.

Two anniversaries, two promotions
With our two new starters already settling in, you may think we’re done with the exciting team news… but you couldn’t be more wrong.
We’re thrilled to be celebrating Chris’s third anniversary at Flamingo 🎂
He celebrated with cake, balloons and, oh… a new job title!
Chris has seen his role switch from Marketing Manager to Head of Marketing & Clientele, to better reflect the incredible work he does.
Also, our brilliant Campaign Executive, Eddy, is celebrating his first full year as part of the team, and he’s taking Chris’s place as Marketing Manager.
A huge congratulations to two truly flamazing marketers.
Emma says “Chris has been my right-hand man from his very first day. Working, quite literally, back-to-back in a tiny bedroom office before we moved into The American Barns. I hired Eddy because I wanted Chris to also have a right-hand man to support him with managing the team and client projects. What I didn’t realise was I was going to end up with two incredible, hard-working, bright individuals either side of me. I am so proud of them both and couldn’t ask for a stronger duo to help me drive Flamingo forward this year!”
...and it's LIVE!
It’s been all go for our Managing Director, Emma, so far this year. Not only has she been working hard on the business, preparing for her speaking slot and helping new employees bed in – she’s also been a guest on her first ever podcast!
Emma was invited to get behind the mic with Chloë Bisson on her Inspired By podcast.
She discusses everything from her early years in the business, building Flamingo through the pandemic and prioritising mental health and a work-life balance.
We’re super proud of Emma for pushing herself out of her comfort zone and if you listen to/watch the podcast, we’re sure you’ll see why!

Staying on trend
Last year saw a ton of marketing trends come to the fore, from AI, big brand boycotts and drastic changes to Twitter… sorry, X!
But what trends should marketers be looking out for in 2024?
In our blog post, we outlined why AI isn’t going anywhere, why human connection is crucial and why B2B brands could be looking to smaller, local companies.
