Emberson hosts annual summer supply partner lunch

Emberson Group’s annual summer supply partner lunch kicked off on 15th June with a pop and a clink of glasses, as members of the networked agency group gathered together with their supply partners at House of St. John, a beautifully restored, purpose-driven business and networking event space, in the centre of Bath.

Emberson Group has had a good year, amassing sales of £2.4m, 6 new employees and 3 internal promotions. The agency network also acquired and re-launched HALO Present, presentation specialists at the start of 2022. The business as a whole is enjoying working with a range of new clients across different sectors.

As well as celebrating new clients and business with supply partners, Emberson is also marking long service awards for Alison Graham and Alex Hudd. Both started with Emberson as supply partners and a decade later are proud to be longstanding permanent members of the core team.

Clare Emberson Pratt, Managing Director, Emberson Group, remarked on the recent achievements, developments and success stories within the business: “It was lovely to see everyone at our annual summer supply partner lunch. We believe people choose to work with people they like and respect and that’s why these events are so valuable. Everyone is different and brings different things to the table. When you pool that, that is where the magic happens. We want to thank everyone over the past 12 months for their collaboration and partnership. 50% of our current employees were originally supply partners. It is tried and tested and a great way for us to continue to build our business in a strong, capable and sustainable way.

“We are supported by our supply partners in different ways. Firstly, as traditional freelancers, or by joining an existing team, we can offer career progression, a phenomenal benefits package and bonus, the opportunity to become a shareholder and benefit from the Emberson Sustainability Fund. We also enable the opportunity for supply partners to start a business, fully supported and backed by Emberson Group.  Our acquisition strategy forms an increasingly exciting backbone to our operation. As a result, we are always looking for more creative entrepreneurs to join us!”
