On the 6th of December we held our final Top Gun / Rising Star event of the year. It was an action packed weekend as we also held our Christmas party. This was the second event of it’s kind that we have held. The first one proved to be extremely popular. The competition prize acted as a good motivator and incentive for our independent sales contractors. This time we battled it out with our Newcastle office rivals at laser-tag.

At Penmex we firmly believe that people should be recognised and rewarded for their efforts when doing a good job. We believe a key factor in our success has been the fun, friendly and nurturing work environment we offer. A good working atmosphere is crucial for a prosperous working environment. If people feel appreciated then they are happier and more productive in what they do.

Being in a highly competitive industry, we always enjoy being involved in anything to do with competition, and we especially enjoy going up against our business associates in Newcastle. It was Edinburgh vs. Newcastle. The top guns and rising stars we selected for this event were; Darren Boyle, Yanis Johnstone, Connor McAllister and Gordon Moffatt. 

After we battled it out at laser-tag, later that night we attended our Christmas party.  The festive spirit was in full swing, everyone having the opportunity to get together to laugh, relax and interact.

In the 6 months we have been open, we have experienced a lot of growth and have laid some strong foundations for the New Year. Our early success can be largely attributed to the incredible people we work with, and we are excited for the year ahead to find the next wave of talented sales contractors, who will take part in these events in future, and help take Penmex forward.

Penmex were established in response to an ever growing need for below-the-line marketing solutions, as recent research has suggested that consumers are experiencing brand fatigue as a result of repeated exposure to above-the-line marketing.  We specialise in below-line customer acquisition through providing cost effective, measurable and tailor-made events-based marketing solutions.

Penmex Reflect on 2014 And Look To The Year Ahead

While the festive season is traditionally the time of year when many business begin to wind-down, as an events-based marketing company the festive season has been our  is our busiest time of the year, as events and venues up and down the country experience their highest footfall in the run up to Christmas. With the New Year fast approaching we have started to reflect on the year that’s past and we are beginning to look ahead to 2015.

When we opened in June, nobody could have predicted the incredible 6 months we’ve experienced here at Penmex. We were well aware that the first year in business is traditionally the hardest, and while it had been a steep learning curve, we have experienced tremendous success. For the last 4 weeks, back to back, we have been the number 1 office in the UK for our client in the Finance sector, which is an incredible feat and something that we are extremely proud of.

We started with 7 people and along the way we have assembled a group of amazing men and women who share our passion and enthusiasm for what we do and who have put in an incredible amount of hard work an effort to get Penmex to where we are today. Our people are our business and our mission is to provide an abundance of learning opportunities for everyone in order to enable them to reach their full potential.

Looking ahead to 2015 we want to expand our business. The first goal is to grow our office to 50 people in January, commonly one of the busiest times in the job market, with many people seeking a change of career as a result of new years resolutions. This growth is to enable us to expand into other UK markets by the end of the second Financial Quarter. Before the year ends we anticipate that we will have moved into at least 2 new cities and be well on the way to establishing Penmex as a market leader in the UK.
