Developing our teams

As part of our commitment at Catch to ensuring that our teams are as equipped for success as they can be, we recently engaged Annabel Shilton, an experienced Business Coach and Consultant, to provide a leadership and management training programme for our management teams.

We took time out last Thursday for this dynamic and engaging workshop, starting with the foundations of the difference between leadership & management, then moving on to how we can all gain from improving on empowerment, ownership & responsibility and how communication is at the centre of effective leadership.

The team had a great day and left feeling empowered to better support not only themselves, but their own teams through better personal effectiveness and communication. We're looking forwards to putting into practise some of the new skills and techniques learned from the workshop.

About Annabel: Annabel Shilton has over 18 years of experience as an Executive Coach, Coach Supervisor and Consultant. Her previous roles in strategic marketing with global companies have equipped her with the unique ability to integrate business, marketing and people strategies, deliver organisational objectives, increase people engagement and productivity. She has worked with many senior executives and top teams in both large and small organisations on coaching and change programmes with a specific focus on developing leaders to build organisations to which people want to belong.

Our new Strategy Director

We're excited to announce we've appointed Polly Lygoe as Strategy Director. Joining our Senior Management Team, Polly will head up the Strategy & Creative department, tasked with helping define and grow our own strategic offering and deploying our skills in order to shape our clients' strategy.

Having spent much of her career in independent digital agencies; building and nurturing growing teams; and working as a strategic partner to clients, Polly is well-placed to support us in our own ambitious plans. Her focus on brand and customer experience, in particular, makes her a good match for our direction and growth plans.

"Polly's proven track record of helping lead digital strategies through a combination of planning and strategy techniques, as well as business, market and consumer insight will really benefit Catch in growing our strategic capabilities for our clients."

Jonathan Smith, Managing Director

"I consider this a bit of a return to my spiritual home. I'm thrilled to be joining a brilliant group of people at such a strong independent digital agency. I'm keen to capitalise on the strong creative & strategy grounding to help excel the agency and broaden our remit to ensure that our work is purposeful and drives impact"
