New website launched for leading entertainment agency

clip_image002We are very pleased to have launched a new website for UK-wide live entertainment booking agency, LMG Entertainments.

LMG are one of the UK’s premier entertainment and after-dinner booking agencies. Based in Lincolnshire, they have supplied a wide range of artists, entertainers, and public speakers to the events sector for over 35 years.

With this project we aimed to showcase LMG’s diverse roster of artists in a logical and functional way. We made use of rich colour and imagery, improved navigation and mobile responsive designs to improve SEO performance and create a more user-friendly experience for visitors.

In addition to this we created an easy-to-use content management system custom made to the client’s specific needs, so that artists, entertainers and public speakers are able to manage and change their own pages before being moderated and pushed live.

Bishop Grosseteste entrepreneurship students work through the night

david bgu entrepreneurship studentsDBS director David Clarke recently spent two interesting mornings at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln.

The University has a new and exciting degree course in Team Entrepreneurship based on the Finnish Tiimiakatemia (Team Academy) model.

David met with a group of Team Entrepreneurship students on Tuesday 30th January for 30 minutes and set them a real-life e-commerce related business challenge. The students had just 24 hours to research and identify an ecommerce product for a marketplace that was prime for disruption. The team presented their business plan to David the following morning after working long through the night.

"I really like the concept of entrepreneurship being embraced by academia" commented David. "The course is a far cry from the text books and lectures associated with a standard business degree. The degree really is hands on with the creation of a successful business at its heart. Entrepreneurship is the life blood of our economy and it's a positive step to see Bishop Grosseteste actively encouraging this type of learning. DBS is really pleased to support this positive learning experience."

DBS pick up top regional business award

clip_image002DBS is celebrating this week after coming home winners from the prestigious FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards.

The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards celebrates smaller businesses and are a chance for those businesses to shine, stand out from the crowd and make their mark within their geographical area.

DBS took home the ‘Community Business of the Year’ award for the entire East Midlands area, an award which looks to honour those businesses who “partake in initiatives that support their local community or makes a positive impact through employee led activities”. The ceremony took place at the Doubletree by Hilton in Nottingham on Thursday 8th February and was attended by DBS Director, David Clarke.

DBS is proud of its corporate social responsibility programme (CSR) contributing locally and internationally to worth causes. In recent years DBS has been involved with community led projects such as the Navenby and Cliff Villages Business Network and the popular Christmas In Navenby event. DBS also provides website support to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and local charity, Star Trust.

Forging strong bonds with local schools and universities, DBS has also been involved in mentoring schemes at the University of Lincoln, Bishop Grosseteste University and with the Mission Mentor scheme, as well as providing work experience opportunities for students at the Priory Academy LSST and Sir William Robertson Academy.

Last year, DBS gave back to its own employees by becoming Lincolnshire’s first Employee Owned Company, a move which drew praise from FSB Judges for it’s “ambitious model”.
