Ahead of World Mental Health Day on 10 October, two members of our Siren team attended the Mental Health First Aid England Course, a globally recognised course training employers to recognise mental ill health and help people find the support they need to stay well. Through this, we have proudly joined a community of over 350,000 people in England and 2.6million people worldwide, trained to help those in mental health need.  

 

Over the two day course the mental illnesses covered included anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorders and psychosis. Through receiving a clear understanding of each illness, its symptoms and how a sufferer may be feeling both mentally and physically we have been provided with a deeper and evidence based understanding of how each illness should be approached. 

 

Whilst extremely overdue, mental health issues have started receiving the attention it needs to ensure those suffering are able to recover and now more than ever, it is becoming the duty of employers to be at hand with the information and tools that can potentially help save lives. 

 

We truly believe that investing in our staff and their wellbeing results enhances client results, on-site efficiency and overall team happiness; and who wouldn’t want that? Here are Siren, we are supporting zero stigma surrounding mental health.

Because it’s the right thing to do and the right time for us both to look for new challenges and partners to create great work with.

 

So yes it’s true, from October this year Siren will no longer be working to support Celebrity Cruises, bringing an incredible run of partnership to an end. A tough decision for us to make – yes; and undoubtedly a scary decision. The right decision for us to make – unreservedly!

 

We’ve delivered some incredible work together over 14 years. We’ve consistently maintained the brand’s high profile and delivered some memorable and award winning campaigns for the nation’s favourite cruise line, including The Celebrity Love Island campaign and countless ship launches including the recent UK showcase for Celebrity Edge. However, all good things must and do come to an end and we’ve elected to go out on a high. We will support the team and business in transitioning to a new PR set up. For Siren it is a very exciting time to be looking for new work and client partners, whilst ensuring we remain focused on delivering for our incumbent clients and team.

 

Wish us luck and if you know anyone looking for a newly single award winning PR agency then please send them our way!

Last week 65 travel agents and two journalists from TTG and Travel Biz turned up at Gatwick airport ready to embark on Barbados’ Mega Fam to celebrate the 65 wonderful years that British Airways has safely carried UK travellers to its paradise shores.

In partnership with TTG, Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. and British Airways ran a competition for travel agents to win a place on the fam trip to explore and experience the island in all its glory. Siren hosted the media along with a group of 20 excited agents, on the trip.

The group was split across three luxury hotels including Turtle Beach, Seabreeze Beach House, and the recently opened The Sands Barbados.

After touching down on the scorching tarmac, the group were straight into their busy itinerary, from the Island Safari, heritage railway tour and cave explorations to site visits of a diverse mix of hotels on island. The trip encompassed all the best bits of Barbados and showcased the plethora of activities available. Barbados is a favourite for winter sun seekers but it has so much more to offer than simply sun, sand, and sea. 

On Friday morning the agents were hosted by Sandals resort where they took part in a mini trade show, this was a great opportunity to meet all the hotel partners, receive all their news and updates and create lasting relationships from which they can move forward and sell the destination in the future.

The Barbados Olympics was one of the highlights of the week, agents and media battled it out in a race of their choice; either taking to the waves for a 100m swim, running a mile on the open road, as well hitting the countryside tracks for a 5k cycle; and for the adrenaline junkies, the obstacle course at the Barbados Ninja Throw Down put them through their paces.

We are happy to say that though our Siren did not win …or even finish the course… she did tackle every obstacle with commitment and enthusiasm… until she fell off the monkey bars and was dunked in the pool #lifeasasiren #goneswimming

The final night saw the agents dancing the night away with rum in hand and soca beats pulsing through the air as they sailed the sea on a catamaran cruise.

By Sunday night no one wanted to leave and our Siren was left knocking on hotel doors and scouring rum shacks for all her wayward sheep.  To the disappointment of the agents, and the relief of our CEO, the trip returned all heads accounted for and not one extra stowed away in a suitcase.

SUCCESS!
