Week 7


By  Sophie Mattinson

Time for feedback

Even though it’s only my 7th week at Nuttersons, I had my 8 week appraisal and goal setting with my boss, Kev, this week. Better early than never.

Pessimism gets me nowhere

Receiving feedback is never something I look forward to, simply because I imagine the worst. However, as usual, pessimism gets me nowhere and I heard nothing but positive feedback. It’s nice to know the hard work I’ve been putting in is paying off and not going unnoticed.

Following the appraisal, we went through a list of goals that I want to be achieving within the next 6 months. I had lots of goals to work towards but main points consisted of:

  • Sticking to Nuttersons core values
  • Working in an effective and efficient manner
  • Be in charge of meeting my own deadlines
  • Add a new cause study to the portfolio within 6 months
  • Manage and oversee all social media usage
  • Assist in recruitment marketing
  • Keep an updated blog (check)
  • Attend conferences and upcoming events
  • Learn the basics of multiple software programmes
  • Work with suppliers and outsourcers

Overall I was pretty happy with these goals as they seemed challenging yet achievable with time.

Trying to master the complicated world of DSLRs

This weekend I also got to take home some camera equipment from the office to try and catch a glimpse of the Super Moon. If you’re not too sure what a Supermoon is exactly, it’s a rare coincidence where the moon is both at full illumination and at its closest point to earth. This makes the moon not only look bigger but appear 30% brighter.

Unfortunately, the good old English weather made the moon impossible to see. I was a little disappointed but nevertheless, I had fun experimenting with the camera and got some good shots of my weekend.

Thank you to Rachel who gave me a quick class on how to handle the Canon D60, it was much needed and appreciated!

Robin Williams

This week in the office we’ve been remembering the life and work of the late and very great Robin Williams.

It’s so sad to see what the world perceived to be such a happy man, take such drastic measures through depression. Hopefully, it will help people understand the serious effects of mental health illnesses.

Anyway, enough of the sad stuff. Stay tuned for next week’s post where I’ll give you a full update on the Great Nuttersons Bake Off.
