Social Circle

Social Circle is a collective of digital marketing and social media enthusiasts, meeting monthly in Birmingham, Manchester, and Sydney to discuss new innovations in social media marketing. What began as a regular monthly catch-up between friends, discussing the latest in social media in the pursuit of delivering great work for our clients, became a new community with a passion for connecting, sharing, and learning.

Are you:

  • A business owner who relies on social media?
  • An agency owner or professional with expertise to share or a team to up-skill?
  • An in-house marketer who wants to keep up to date with latest trends and technology?
  • A freelancer looking to network and share best practice?
  • A student who wants to build on their theoretical knowledge and connect with employers?

From grads to seasoned pros, everyone with an interest in social media is welcome to join the Circle.We want people who are both generous with their experience and ready to learn. We’ll be sure to share all of the insights after the event so nothing shared in the circle is forgotten.

  • Sit with like-minded industry professionals
  • Stay up to date with innovations in social media
  • Find specialists who can support your business growth
  • Chat, relax, and discuss your latest projects and campaigns

Girl Code

We are Girlcode. Our vision and mission has always been to help women in digital. We’re rebranding this year to deliver events that look and sounds how we feel—disruptive, honest, and passionate about breaking down barriers.

People don’t want what you make. They want the way it will make them feel.

Jargon Buster

We know that the world of branding, development, and marketing is full of acronyms and jargon you may not have heard before. It can be completely overwhelming, especially when you’re just trying to run your business, so we’ve put together a little cheat sheet for you. Next time someone mentions a problem with their backlinks you won’t be confused (or concerned).

The website build was extremely good, the final outcome was even better. We are over the moon with our new website and the feedback from customers has been incredible. Cake went out their way to make recommendations on what they know from experience will work. Can’t recommend any higher & looking forward to continually working with the team.
