Introducing Kimmy

A little bit about myself and why I chose dxw…   Hi, I’m Kimmy,  dxw’s new Business Operations Intern. Having recently entered the workplace after spending time looking after my father, I am now branching out as an intern at dxw. I have found that the work I do with dxw suits me well, the […]

Introducing Amy Marie Phillips

My story so far… Having finished my master’s degree at 34, I’m what you would call a career changer. I began in print journalism, which is great fun, but a very different content model now. Journalism showed me how much I enjoy interacting with the public and telling their stories, which is the right ethos […]

Introducing Dominic Baggott

Hi, I’m Dom, and a couple of weeks ago I joined dxw as Head of Technology. I’ve been contracting for the best part of a decade, working with clients in both the public and private sector for anywhere between six weeks and 18 months. Some of my most rewarding roles in that time have been […]

6 years, 4 job titles, 3 offices, 1 great company

Fast forward three months, this is now my ‘how my three-month internship went’ blog post. (Breaking news: I have now been […]

How to communicate more effectively with colleagues

This summer we headed off to Birmingham to sponsor and take part in the CommsCamp unconference, where a converted warehouse played host to over 180 public sector PR, marketing and communications professionals. Throughout the day, a common theme that emerged was of the problems with internal communications in the public sector and how these can be […]

A fond farewell

After nearly two years at dxw, the time has come for me to move on. I have not been particularly good at writing blog posts for dxw. In fact, writing blog posts used to be a big part of a previous job, and then I only wrote about two per year. So when I was […]
