On Thursday 7th February, we saw our first Digital Communications Stars networking event here at our VMA Group office in London. Led by our digital practice, the event was a fantastic opportunity to bring our community of digital communications pros together, across different sectors and career levels, to provide a platform to share best practice, stories of success and challenges, and all manner of digital comms insights.
The response to our invitation was great, with a full house of people from the likes of Rio Tinto, Deloitte, the Greater London Authority, Aviva, Hill and Knowlton, the Department of Health, VisaEurope, Barclays and Sequel group and many others.
And what did people think?
“The event was a great opportunity to meet with fellow digital comms professionals, it made a nice change to see people face to face! I met some really interesting people and got some great insight into upcoming trends too.”
Emily Bhania, Hill and Knowlton: @BhaniaEmily
“A great event last night… it was a fantastic opportunity to meet and chat with other digital comms people. Really well done, I hope there is a repeat!”
Susan Pape, Greater London Authority: @GLASusanPape
“A great opportunity to meet like minded digital professionals who understand the evolving digital landscape and actually want to be a part of its future.”

If you’d like to be a part of our digital communications community, drop me a line here at VMA Group, or Tweet me via @VMADigital. And if you know any great digital communications people, do share this blog with them so they can join our community – with such great feedback, I hope to arrange more of these gatherings in the near future.
Again, a massive thanks to all those who attended and made the night what it was.
