Black Vanilla has strengthened its team with two new appointments; graduates Katie Leach and Krista Osborne join the agency as Junior PR Executive and Social Media and Events Assistant respectively.
Black Vanilla is proud to support this year’s CIPR Channel Islands PR Forum, which will explore the themes of corporate purpose, social responsibility and the role of PR professionals. The forum is taking place at the Digital Greenhouse Guernsey on Thursday 12th September, running from 12.15 pm – 5.00 pm.
Hey there, I’m Katie and I’ve just finished a week of work experience at Black Vanilla. I’ve had a fulfilling week and learnt a lot about the PR industry – here are my top five insights from the week
Nichole was delighted to join the speaker panel for the Channel Islands Information Security Forum’s inaugural Guernsey Cyber Security Conference earlier this month. The event offered an unrivalled opportunity to explore how Guernsey can put effective measures in place to safeguard its businesses against a data breach.
We were delighted to be invited to join a breakfast seminar organised by Mourant this week about managing the consequences of a cybersecurity incident.
Nichole Culverwell spoke on a panel alongside the Mourant team which included cybersecurity expert Matthew Parker, Sally French who handled regulatory and dispute resolution questions and Hana Plesk, who spoke about the employment and GDPR implications of a breach. The panel was moderated by Jessica Roland, Mourant Partner.
Guernsey-based communications agency Black Vanilla has announced a change in ownership as Nichole Culverwell takes over sole ownership from founder and co-owner Jade Isabelle.
Mrs Isabelle founded Black Vanilla in 2008 based on her local and national media planning, media buying and events expertise. Demand and growth brought public relations and social media to the service offering, and further growth came when Mrs Culverwell merged her public relations business with the agency in 2016. Since then, Black Vanilla’s specialism in public relations, copywriting, events and social media services has continued to grow.
After over 10 years as founder and co-owner of Black Vanilla, it feels very strange not to be heading into the BV office on The Grange this morning.
I’m exceptionally proud of what Black Vanilla has achieved over the years and it’s great that Nichole will take over sole ownership and continue its growth.
