Joined by almost 40 guests, TopicUK, Wakefield’s business community magazine celebrated its first Birthday on 9th May with a drinks reception at Theatre Royal, Wakefield.
Wakefield-based member TopicUK was launched in April 2013 by Ghost Communications to help SMEs in the district with free publicity and affordable advertising. 12 months on and the magazine has gone from strength to strength with distribution doubling with the latest issue.
In early 2014, TopicUK became a social enterprise and joining partners Gill Laidler and Rob Blackwell on the board were Claire Young, director of School Speakers, Sinead Sopala, Director of Marketing at Ramsdens Solicitors, Tim Welton, Partner at Chadwick Lawrence and Martin Hopkins, Commercial Manager at Wakefield Wildcats.
A number of sponsors have signed in support of TopicUK whilst enjoy lots of publicity themselves, the latest being a partnership with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats. “We are delighted to announce our partnership with the Wildcats,” said Gill, “and look forward to joint planned promotions, which will benefit all our readers.”
