As a Mancunians, We were “proper chuffed” to be picked for Google Elevator. So my business was chosen as only one of thirty agencies in the UK. Chosen for what? Chosen to take part in Google’s elite fast track to success coaching programme ‘Elevator’. Get Me! It’s a three day course in London, over three months, with personal coaching to boot. There’s a few other sessions thrown in too and hopefully an afterparty. And it’s all about the afterparty!
So, the programme is led by Robert Craven, a first class, international business keynote speaker. Because of his enthusiastic delivery and a simple step by step approach to digital agency growth, Robert has been voted number 42 in the UK Power 100 for Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurs and referred to as “The UK’s Number One Business Speaker”.
Knowing that Google have a reputation for bringing in the best. It’s an honour to be in the small group of agencies to benefit from his experience. See all my other Google Shizz here.
What is Google Elevator?
The programme looks at the successes behind major players on the Google Partners programme and sees what makes them tick. It involves only thirty agencies in the UK. Those who have shown they have the expertise and mindset to successfully scale their digital agencies. It gives them the methods they need to achieve their goals and helps with strategy. By strategy, I mean, where am I going and how the hell am I going to get there?
Since gaining our Google Partner badge, we have earned the search, display and mobile specialisms. We are certified in all five areas of Google Advertising and Analytics. Since then I have provided training with local authority growth programmes in Manchester. I continue to educate business on the power of digital advertising. Also, this year I am a growth advisor for Enterprise Nation.
So, how does this help anyone? Basically, I always look for the latest knowledge, data and training to make sure that the work I do for our clients and the advice I give them is up to date and relevant.
