  1. Dragonfly proudly supporting local charity PATCH this Christmas

    Leave a Comment

    It may still be October but the Dragonfly elves are already hard at work on a Christmas project. We’re delighted to be supporting palliative care charity PATCH Scotland for the third year running, to print their high quality annual Christmas cards.

    PATCH is the first charity specifically to support 24/7 specialist palliative care for patients in hospitals across Scotland.

    We are donating the print of the cards, with a print run of 5,000. They’ll be beautifully packed into cellophane in bundles of 10 and sold through contacts and independent retailers, with all proceeds going to this deserving charity.

    After a robin and an owl featuring on previous cards, a Highland cow will be the star of this year’s card. The card is specially designed by British artist Zaza Shelley. The original painting will be framed and auctioned at a dinner to help raise more money for PATCH.

    Keep an eye out for these gorgeous cards on a shelf near you, soon!

  3. How we embraced the IDM’s Award in GDPR

    As an ISO27001 certified, member organisation of The DMA and a company who believe in the importance of relationships built on transparency and trust we all agreed it was imperative that the entire team undertake the IDM’s Award in General Data Protection Regulation as soon as possible.

    Management consensus was that the best learning process would be to split the agency into study groups of varied expertise and seniority, and for each group to spend one morning of intensive study wherein they could discuss live examples together to maximise the relevance of the material. This method proved very successful with every member of the team passing the final exam before lunchtime with scores over 80%.

    Vicky Grant commented “Taking a collaborative approach to study has given the entire agency an increased appreciation and passion for a subject which many consider to be both daunting and dry. Our successful education on the subject has increased our confidence to the extent we have now begun hosting a series of GDPR themed events.”
