Kaspersky Internet Driving Academy

KIDA, for short, is Kaspersky’s way of saying thank you to their top performing network of resellers. Food, Ferrari’s and foot-down action is the order of the day.

This time of the year it comes to the UK along with the two motorsport trucks that have four delicious race-prepared Ferrari’s in the back! We were invited down to see KIDA in action, capture the moments for the attendees and of course have a drive!

Three of us were let loose on the Rockingham track with a Ferrari each. We all thought we were driving like Fernando Alonso.

Then we moved seats and let the professionals take over. They proved within 2 corners that the three of us were really just trickling around the track.

When you couple a race prepared Ferrari with a seasoned race driver the experience is something that cannot be explained. The moves simply defy gravity.

So, we have decided that maybe we should carry on working at the agency and possibly GT racing is not something we’d be that great at.

G&T heads for Silverstone

Home of British motorsport, the driver’s favourite, the flattest track ever…the names go on. We’re off there this weekend to support the Kaspersky Motorsport team with their comm’s as usual.

Let’s hope the UK weather doesn’t play it’s usual tricks at this time of the year! Although the racing will be very interesting if it does.

When G&T went to Monza

Just a few days ago we were fortunate enough to be at the first race in the Blancpain GT Endurance Series to support our client Kaspersky Motorsport (and drool at some of the metal on show, particularly the team’s Ferrari 458 GT3). Here’s a quick gallery of some of the images and videos we grabbed while we were there:

Moving up and moving to bigger!

So the time has come to move away from our beloved Digbeth and act like grown ups in the Big City!

We’re not moving too far, because Birmingham is our home, but we are moving closer to the action. Our new address is York House on Great Charles Street Queensway. We’ve now got great transport links and most importantly a Philpotts over the road for the Friday butties and a SubWay underneath us for the all-important 12″ Meat Ball sub for when the night before is knocking us around the next day…

Beta testing a new Laser Tag arena for Teamworks Karting

When our long-standing client, Teamworks based in Digbeth Birmingham, created their new Laser Tag arena they wanted some people to test it out…for pure client service reasons we accepted!

Such a cool space and even those among us who were not Laser Tag fans soon got in to the games – some a little too much!

Appointed by GVA to handle The Meadows

Once again we’re excited to announce that property management company GVA has appointed us to help rebrand and then relaunch The Meadows Shopping Centre.

The work sees us working with the GVA marketing team to position the centre as a destination for the town and then relaunch all the associated assets.

Best roll our sleeves up then!

The G&T office playlist

The office jukebox is on all day, banging out tunes that inspire & energise us. And because we’re all in one open space, we’ve created a Spotify playlist to which we all contribute so there’s something for everyone. Check it out… and follow it if you like the sounds!

The G&T drone’s first flight

In our never ending quest for fresh perspectives, we’ve got a drone in the agency. While it’s not the easiest beast to tame, when it gets in the air the results are impressive. See what you think from this recent test flight over intu Merry Hill.

Bouncing and team building

In our latest team building away-day we headed out to Bassett’s Pole for a spot of quad biking and inflatable fun.

There were some clear winners on the day – from Brendon’s 40 second assault course scramble (just missing out on the all time record) to Dave’s 2 second stint on the Gladiator station – and a good time was had by all.

We retreated to the bar licking our wounds and shining our medals, but an even stronger team than we’d started.
