Cooking up a storm

What better way to showcase a new kitchen than to have a cookery demonstration, which is exactly  how client Kitchens International officially opened their new showroom at Martin & Frost, Fort Kinnaird, near Edinburgh. Chef Tony Singh MBE showed how to get the most from these beautiful kitchens by cooking up a delicious Spicy Lamb Pattie, called a Nuhra with the most delicious marinated onions, as well as putting together a Ceviche of Scallops with pomegranate, ginger and lime. My favourite ingredients – lime and ginger – really made this a special dish and there was unanimous approval of both dishes.

With many press, clients, potential clients and VIP friends attending it was the perfect way to show what its like to cook and work in a designer kitchen. We all longed for the special features – ovens that can be set by wifi, huge induction hobs, Quooker boiling water taps and so much more – if you can pop in and take a look at the kitchens – the designs will blow your mind! Now back to cooking those dishes…

Define your objectives before you begin on a PR campaign

Times are tough for many companies right now and it can be all too easy to race to do something to improve business. There is no doubting that PR is essential if you are to stay visible in this fast-moving digital world. But before embarking on a campaign it is vital to work out your marketing objectives (what are you trying to achieve), your PR objectives and strategy (how are you going to achieve it) and who your target market is. From this you can define your goals and then work out what is the best campaign to follow to achieve it. For example there’s no point mounting a massive social media campaign across Instagram and Snapchat if your target audience don’t ever go there. (And did you know the average age of someone using Instagram is just 22?) Equally if you’re only wanting to talk to other businesses use trade press, business to business communication and twitter.

Think, plan and define before starting any PR campaign and the results will be far more effective.

Its that time of year – should we say thanks to clients and customers?

Corporate gifting has diminished since the heady days of the eighties when corporate entertaining budgets were large and we all received and gave nice gifts at Christmas to our valued clients and customers. However, it is still a lovely touch around the festive season to say thanks to staff or those clients or customers who have really made a difference during the year. Then what to give or do?  Edible gifts always go down well and the ones I love seeing going out are the wonderful Demijohn corporate gifts – I defy anyone who doesn’t enjoy opening a beautifully wrapped bottle with their name on it, filled with one of the Demijohn delicious drinks. Or perhaps treat your staff or clients to a special day or evening – a cocktail demo and tasting evening or a cookery demo. These are often far more appreciated than a standard party and cater for everyone, even the non-party animals.

Whatever you do, enjoy the build up to Christmas – it is a special time of year when we get together with friends and family and even have some days off! What more could we want!

Why is social media so important?

“We don’t have a choice as to whether we do social media, the question is how well we do it.” (Socialnomics)

Many people like to say ‘I don’t do Facebook’ or ‘My business doesn’t need social media’. I believe they’re wrong as in this fast-moving, fast talking era, you ignore social media at your peril. Social media isn’t difficult to do but it IS skilled to do it well. Just because you post regularly about your personal life on social media doesn’t mean you can do social media for a business. The success of social media is knowing your business, knowing your audience and giving them something they want to share and engage with. Endless posts that are dry and just transmit information about your business will be ignored. If you engage your audience, give them varied content and show a face to your organisation it reap benefits. Communication is two ways so always be there to talk and to listen.
