Kate Ross and Amy McCulloch set up the digital marketing agency eight&four back in 2008 in a dining room, in the most difficult economic cirumstances for businesses in over 20 years. Since then the business has grown from strength to strength, to 8 full time staff, global clients, award winning work, and a Soho office. Pretty good work for a couple of 24 year olds in the middle of the worst recession this century.
In the three years since eight&four began, Kate and Amy have gained a unique insight into both the ‘digital’ world and the trials and tribulations of setting up in business. As such, the eight&four founders are regularly invited to speak at events and conferences about life at eight&four and their digital marketing expertise.
“As a Digital Coordinator my job involves running a website and the associated social media sites, Facebook and Twitter, and it proved invaluable to attend eight&four’s workshop at the our annual business networking event, SALON SMART. As well as receiving exceptional feedback from our delegates, I also came away with great insight, ideas and inspiration to take my company’s online profile to another level.” Rachael Bridge, Creative HEAD
eight&four were invited to speak at the annual Annenberg conference for charity – talking to the dental profession about how to utilise social media in a professional way
“Thank you so much for yesterday’s outstanding presentation – delegates said you completely stole the show!” Mervyn Druian, Chair of Annual Annenberg Conference
eight&four took part in a Dragon’s Den style event for local colleges, offering advice to 16-18 year old students about starting up in business
“We ran a dragon’s den style event for students aged between 16-18 in August of this year. We invited the eight&four Commercial Director Kate Ross to sit on the panel of experts. Her advice was absolutely spot on and our students were entirely engaged with the first hand business experience she offered, as well as the passion and true enthusiasm for start-ups that she has in abundance.” Toyin Dania WYEC Manager Business Counselling & Training
eight&four were invited to speak at the biggest hair and beauty event in the UK to encourage salon owners to harness the power of social media for their business
“The Business Extra seminar was a great success – Amy and Kate’s approach to presenting is fresh, and their tone engaging. The content of the presentation was entirely focused on the hair and beauty industry so the audience went away with tailored action points to help them harness the power of social media for their business. The feedback from attendees has been fantastic and we look forward to seeing the team at next year’s event.” Nicola Lazenby, Senior Marketing Manager for Salon International
