It’s November (so basically Christmas) and hasn’t this year flown by! October was another cracking month in the world of StrategiQ – we welcomed new starters, launched websites, attended the SearchLove conference and discussed how you can use psychology to benefit your marketing strategies.

Of course, the real reason you’re here is to find out who has been crowned last month’s Most Valuable Player! Let’s take a look at some of the nominations from October…

“This month’s MVP winner for me has to be Bex 👩🏻‍🎨Bex has quite simply been smashing it left, right and centre. Not only has she been taking on a huge amount of work as we’ve been busier and busier, but she has also been supporting the design team with their projects to keep their milestones on track. Bex never complains and always completes the task in hand to a high standard. In addition to delighting our clients, Bex is definitely delighting the team around her, making her an absolute dream to work with!”


“The impact that Phil has had on the business in just four months has been phenomenal. From transforming our reporting and client presentation templates to owning the sh*t out of StrategiQ’s marketing, everything that Phil touches is done at speed and to an incredibly high standard. The way he organised and delivered the Search Love blog, and the value we enjoyed as a result, is a prime example of this. The calibre of client that Phil has us speaking to and winning is also a testament to his tenaciousness and massive marketing brain. This only scratches the surface, but it’s more than enough to make Phil a worthy MVP.”

“Adam is always a grafter, but in October he went above and beyond to assist in my absence and manage an array of content projects. His work got a client shortlisted for two awards, and once shortlisted, he jumped on the associated projects on a moment’s notice. Adam always seems to get a lot of nominations but is often pipped at the post. I think October was his month! God knows he needs an additional day off for his next European getaway!”

But who won?

Unfortunately, Adam’s dreams of yet another European holiday were scuppered at the last furlong once again by this month’s winner.

This person’s tenacity, skill, hard work and determination to succeed has seen him voted the most valuable player for October by the team. You got it, this month’s MVP is Charlie Taylor!


Charlie’s nominations say it all…

“Charlie’s work smashes clients’ expectations with awesome results right out of the gate and alone justifies his worthiness of the title of MVP. To boot he’s been putting in the hours managing our weightiest and most time-intensive PPC accounts, alongside account-managing inherited clients from Chris, working incredibly effectively with the SEO team and supporting Elliot with PPC delivery. Seriously, give this guy a day off.”

“Really tough this month with a number of outstanding performances. Firstly a nod to Oli, Levi and Kara and the way in which they have really taken ownership of our SEO offering out of Suffolk. They are working as a proper team and it’s been really rewarding watching that take shape this month. Secondly a mention for Bex, who has quite literally worked herself into the ground this month with her never-ending ‘give-a-sh*t’ mentality.

However, my nomination goes to Charlie. Managing half a dozen clients and all our larger PPC accounts at the same time is no small feat and to generate excellent results while doing so is doubly impressive. It’s clear that the leadership training is paying dividends with some of the ways he’s enabling the wider marketing team and effectively delegating. Well done Charlie, take a break!”

And with that, another month, another MVP with a duvet day and a dinner out on us. Congrats Charlie, it’s well deserved!
