It’s Christmas time already! Hasn’t 2021 flown by?

From all of us here at Sleeping Giant Media, we’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & A Giant New Year.

Looking back over 2021, we can see we’ve accomplished some Giant things, and hope you have too.

We managed to take on 30 new Giants, growing our service offering and boosting the business. And guess what, we’re still hiring with some awesome plans to come in 2022!

We got to launch The Spark Agency with the aim of helping other businesses achieve their digital marketing goals through set packaged solutions and that’s doing amazingly, with a fast-growing team too.

We hosted workshops and trained hundreds of people, we attended business events where we were able to – reconnecting with people across the UK. We saw some Giant results for clients, bringing on some big brands to our portfolio and scaling up smaller businesses to Giant sizes.

We even launched a game towards the end of this year aimed purely at helping people to Find The Joy – our internal and external mission statement after a kinda crazy couple of years. You can still play that btw… just submit a score to the leaderboard for a chance to win awesome prizes.

We were listed as one of The Drums Top Digital Agencies, we won awards under The Investors In People for our reward, recognition and employee engagement programmes, and were even finalists for Employer of The Year, Customer Service Awards and Commitment To The Environment Award. Fantastic, right?

All in all, we focused this year, across our Giants and our clients on connecting, building foundations and finding the joy 👏

To all that have been part of our journey, or will play a part in the future, we love you!
