February at Advance Group.
February at Advance Group
Following on from a great start to the year and plenty of good news amoungst the office. February has been equally as exciting for Advance TM Group.
We attended our first industry event of the year, Safe Start 2019. Networking with relevant construction businesses and discussing how we can help support their growth plans and business development needs for the year. We also travelled around a little this month heading to Coventry, Leicester, Telford and even down to Bristol.
February was the month of love, our wonderful team leader Lisa set a fantastic Valentines Incentive for the team. This involved winning lots of prizes and being in the running for a cracking hamper at the end of the challenge.
The office was also lucky enough to have a few visitors throughout the month. We were overjoyed to finally meet baby Bobby and the entire office got to steal a cuddle or two. Gus the Pug also made an exciting appearance, tail wagging and ready to eat the table tennis balls as they flew past.
We had a number of exciting occasions in February. From promotions and birthdays to pamper hampers and new coffee machines, it’s been an eventful month.
First up we had a couple of promotions within the business. Mike Healey was promoted from Account Manager to Business Development Associate after all his hard work helping the business development team over the past couple of months. Arron Street was also promoted from Account Manager to Senior Account Manager. Congratulations to you both, very well deserved.
Birthday wise, Chris Piercy celebrated turning thirty-five in the office and we had one other birthday during the month. We had a Valentines incentive running from the first of the month until the day of love itself. This meant the team continued to work hard at hitting their targets to move up the board and be in with a chance of winning the amazing pamper hamper put together by Lisa, our team leader.
We’d also like to welcome a new member to the team, Mike O’Connell who has joined us and has hit the ground running with our client’s campaigns.
We’ve got an extremely busy month ahead. If you read out latest blog post about “The Importance of construction events like Futurebuild.” Then you’ll be aware that Advance will be heading to a fair few construction events this month. We’ll be heading to Futurebuild this week as well as the RCI Show, The Homebuilding and Renovations Show and the UK Concrete Show so our business development team will be kept very busy.
If you are heading to any of the above shows and are interested in how outsourced telemarketing and lead generation can help your business, please call us on 0151 357 2166 too arrange a chat during the events this month.
Mike – My highlight of the month is again business related, five new trial campaigns beginning in February and getting off to a flying start for what looks like an exciting year ahead for Advance.
Simon – My highlight this month has to be CGG (Construction Growth Generator) getting off to a great start and having two new contracts signed with work beginning in March.

As mentioned above it’s great to see CGG off to an amazing start. With two new contracts signed and work beginning for these clients during March. There will also be new content being uploaded to the blog shortly too so make sure you keep an eye on those.
Stay tuned for more exciting news and business updates next month!
