outREACH Conference

Outreach Logo

One dreary morning in January we decided that it would be a good idea to host a conference in the summer, you know, just to challenge ourselves a little. The next day the venue was booked.

A week later we’d got the branding sorted and had put up a page on the website. Now there are just a few days to go until outREACH,  our first ever conference!

We are so humbled by the positive response we’ve had from brands, other agencies and freelancers, and we would like to thank everyone who has bought a ticket to support us. We cannot wait to meet you all on Friday!

We’d also like to say a massive thank you to our sponsors – DeepCrawl, ScribbleLive/Linkdex, Majestic & SEOMonitor, for their support.

As seasoned speakers, Lisa and Hannah knew exactly what was missing from the conference scene – a single track event 100% dedicated to outreaching content.  Our event follows the whole process, with sessions on coming up with creative campaigns, how to get your ideas signed off, mindset, how to (and how not to) approach journalists, processes, tools, tips, and so much more.  There is no other event like it in the SEO conference calendar.

We’ve hand-picked our speakers and the entire event has been planned around their specialist knowledge.  You can see a full list of speakers on our agenda page here.

Closing the conference is our keynote speaker, Mr Jim Lawless, with his tales on how he used the right mindset to ‘tame his tigers’ and become a jockey…oh, and also get in the record books.

outREACH takes place this Friday, 9th June, at the Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3EN.

Love is All Around

“I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes, Love is all around me, and so the feelings grows!”

These two lines of the cheesy 90’s pop tune perfectly describe the feeling at Verve Search HQ last week. It was the return of LOVE WEEK, a chance for the whole office to express how they feel about one another through the medium of being SECRET ANGELS!

Every employee in the company (including the CEO) has their name put into a bowl and one at a time names are drawn.  The name you draw is the person you will be a secret angel to for the week. The key to a successful love week  is keeping your guise as secret angel – a secret.

IMG_20170309_134849You don’t have to spend lots of money on fancy-schmancy gifts, anonymous emails and little love notes are often the best love week gifts.  This love week was even bigger and better than before, with object of affection ranging from flowers to beer to LP’s and Unicorn Poop!

Marcelle, our very lovely Project Co-Ordinator, gave this nice quote about love week: â€œLove week is great not just because you get presents or material gifts, but because people really go through such effort to learn more about you and what you LOVE! That looks different for everybody but it means that by the end of the week, you’ve got to know your co-worker a lot better”

A few years ago, Verve Search were inspired by the clever folks at Mindvalley to encourage love to be part of “everyone’s job description for five days”.  Verve  been doing love week every quarter since, and it has become a fond tradition here at Verve Search. ♥
