Urban Element are proud to be sponsoring the Social Media Award at this year’s West Oxfordshire Business Awards. Having been a finalist in the Innovation Category at the awards in 2011, we didn’t hesitate at the chance of being involved again this year.
This award was open to all organisations in West Oxfordshire who could demonstrate that their use of social media had impacted positively on their business. At the start of February, the entrants for this award were all interviewed by our MD Jon Ellard and Beth Burge who is on the WOBA Committee.
Jon said “Over the last few years there has been a lot of hype around social media and various companies have jumped on the band wagon with no real plan or strategy. Urban Element wanted to find those companies that had used and were using social media strategically.”
The finalists in the social media category are Aston Pottery, who design and make pottery from their studio in Oxfordshire; Chipping Norton Theatre, a theatre, cinema, gallery and concert hall that also run workshops; and Morgen HR who provide HR and payroll consultancy to businesses throughout Oxfordshire.
The awards ceremony takes place on March 16th 2012 at Heythrop Park. For more details about the awards or if you are interested in entering next year, follow @wobateam on Twitter.
