Supporting Good Causes
Claire House Children’s Hospice is Elephant Digital’s nominated charity and we have supported them since we opened our doors. Our managing director, Phil Birss founded the Claire House Cup football tournament in 2012, creating their brand and website in the process.
Although the management of the tournament has now passed on to Joe and the fantastic team at Activity for All, Elephant continues to lead on all brand and website development for the tournament, which has raised over £100,000 for the hospice since its launch.
We love to work with great people on interesting and collaborative projects. In 2016 we helped Lauren and the team at Chic PR to develop and launch the brand and website for the North West Fashion Festival. The festival is a bi-annual fashion and beauty event that brings together the North West’s leading influencers, designers and retail brands all in one venue. The 2016 festival was held in iconic St George Hall and was heralded a great success by all measures.
May 2016 saw the latest Binary Festival hit Liverpool. The Binary Festival is ‘a lively two-day gathering, celebrating and connecting communities of innovators, inventors, leaders, makers and creators of our future.’ Elephant hosted a gathering at Liverpool Science Park talking about the power of LinkedIn for business.
Knowledge Sharing and Mentoring
Our managing director, Phil Birss is a guest speaker at the University of Liverpool Management School and Liverpool International College, talking to students about brand and marketing.
Working with Paul Matthews at University of Liverpool Management School, Phil is also a mentor for their annual SME Business Challenge day, where students have to create a new company in just one day.
Phil acts as a mentor on the MBA Entrepreneurship module at University of Liverpool Management School, providing advice and support to students looking to create a business plan for a real-world profit making enterprise. Phil also speaks regularly at John Moore University.
