Suffolk Business Exhibition 2013

Sea Shell Communications was at the ISSBA Suffolk Business Exhibition 2013 on 1st May with a new competition to challenge the business community!

Where in the World is the Welly? was the gauntlet thrown to visitors and participants at the Exhibition, held again at the Trinity Park showground, Ipswich. The Sea Shell wellies made a guest appearance after their globe-trotting adventures in February on board Balmoral, for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines (FOCL). Sea Shell Communications undertook PR liaison work for FOCL during a world cruise filmed by the BBC.

Visitors were invited to guess where the wellies were. The winner was Maria Moslin-Thomas from KWMCC, who will receive an hour's free evaluation of public speaking skills from Cathy Shelbourne, a highly experienced public speaker and finalist in  the Toastmasters International England and Ireland Evaluation Contest 2010.

And where in the world was the welly? It was on Rangiroa (option B), a most amazing island made up of a ring of coral reefs, the only trace of the long-gone crater of one of the thousands of volcanoes in the Pacific.
