Guess the team member – Day 5…

Posted in General Blurb! by bcm06 on 01/06/2010

1pm Box Clever HQ…

Good afternoon everyone, hope you all had a great bank holiday weekend.

Its a dull, grey, overcast day at Box Clever HQ, what better way to cheer us all up with another guess the team member question. Do you know who it is yet?

8 ) If you were Prime Minister what’s the first law you’d enforce?

It depends on how I’m feeling! I’d say more bank holidays would be nice, especially in winter as there aren’t many in winter and that’s when people feel like they want to hibernate! The other thing would be to push and help and support smaller businesses get up and running.

Guess the team member – Day 4…

Posted in General Blurb! by bcm06 on 28/05/2010

9am – Warwick…

We survived death by paperwork yesterday, great to clear the desk. Are you ready for the next instalment of guess the team member…(course you are)

I’ve managed to grab a spare 10 minutes with this particular person before we head into our final client meeting of the week. A special treat as you get two questions!

6) What’s your philosophy on life?

Try not to get too stressed, enjoy it, make the most of it and make sure you have a close support of family and friends around you. Life takes twist and turns but as long as you have a good support network you’ll be fine!

7) If you had super powers for the day what would they be?

To magically clone myself! (laughs) There’s always at least 15 – 20 things that I would like to have achieved in any one day but I don’t get round to it! They could do boring mundane day-to-day stuff. It would be good for a clone to sleep for a day – and the energy to be transported to me!

Guess the team member – Day 3…

Posted in General Blurb! by bcm06 on 27/05/2010

10am – Box Clever HQ…

A very warm sunny morning to you all, great day yesterday, loads of happy clients pleased with our work which is what we like.

Today is paperwork day, scheduling work into the studio, getting estimates out, just a typical Box Clever Day – perfect opportunity to ask…

5) What’s your most treasured possession?

It would either be my dog Bella, cat Jessie or my wedding ring.

Guess the Box Clever team member – Day 2…

Posted in General Blurb! by bcm06 on 26/05/2010

9am – Day 2…


Great photoshoot yesterday, managed to get all the shots we needed, many thanks to everyone who helped out. Another busy day ahead with this mystery Box Clever  team member, client meetings all day with the odd supplier visit thrown in for good measure. While were travelling towards our first client meeting of the day its the perfect opportunity to ask:

3) If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you’d buy?

A trip to New York and find a swanky new holiday home! I’d also be thinking about sharing my wealth with my nearest and dearest and how I can benefit them.

4pm – Day 2…

Successful day so far, we’ve seen many a happy client/supplier, and even managed to grab a bite to eat courtesy of the salesman’s’ best friend aka the service station. We are currently stuck in traffic on the notorious M6, so whilst were not going anywhere.

4) What’s the worst job you’ve ever done?

That’s easy! In my first summer break from uni my dad was very clear that I had to go out and earn my keep. I got a job that very same morning at a garden nursery just outside Stratford and spent the hottest summer in a sweat box of a green house wearing latex gloves and sticking a pin into seedtrays on a conveyor belt, it was humid, hot and horrible – not much fun.


Guess the Box Clever team member – Day 1…

Posted in General Blurb! by bcm06 on 25/05/2010

This week we’re going to be following a member of the Box Clever team around to see what makes them tick. To add a bit more mystery were not going to tell who it is, that would be far too easy, instead we’ll ask various questions to this particular team member and let you guess who it is…

Right then, day one….

It’s 9.30am were fuelled with coffee and currently on location for one of our clients photoshoot. Perfect opportunity to ask our first question…

1) What’s the first thought when you wake up?

Erm a coffee!!! No – getting up and saying hello to the cat (Jesie) and dog (Bella) and obviously the husband!! (laughs) then focusing on what work needs to be achieved in the day (usually as I am driving in the car)

12.30pm, lunch time is upon us…

Busy, busy morning so far at our top secret photoshoot, so far we’ve:
– drank 10 cups of coffee 
– taken 400 photo’s
– had 3 location changes 
– used 7 different models

While we gather our thoughts for the afternoon session:

2) What are the best parts about your job?

Blimey, I would have to say that no two days are the same. Take last week for example; heading off to a photo shoot, a video shoot, talking through concepts, checking project deliveries & putting together estimates for potential projects. Also working with different companies, people and personalities has to be the best part of my job!


England v Mexico: match preview…

Posted in General Blurb! by bcm06 on 24/05/2010

Mexico will come to Wembley intent on frustrating their hosts, hoping to hit England on the counter-attack. Javier Aguirre’s team are not averse to putting all 11 men behind the ball, absorbing pressure and looking to break at speed through Andres Guardado, the Deportivo La Coruna winger. England will enjoy plenty of possession, but may need to be patient. Read more…
