A New Direction for Social & Local CIC

New Direction

After twelve years of ground-breaking projects and award-winning campaigns, Social & Local CIC Co-Founder and Female Frontier honouree Steph Drakes is stepping back this spring and handing over to new Managing Director Holly Greenland. Steph will be on hand in the short term to bring consistency as the agency transitions.

Strategic Director at Social & Local since 2019, Holly and her team will continue the agency’s focus on offering the first-class senior consultancy and delivery you have come to expect from SoLo for your market insight, communications and content needs.

Of the upcoming changes, Steph says: “The opportunity afforded by this new leadership offers so much scope for Social & Local to build on its core offer of quality with purpose and I look forward eagerly to seeing the company go from strength to strength”.

What’s next for Social & Local?

Exciting changes are planned in the coming year for Social & Local CIC that will include new projects, new offers and new team members.

Holly says of the upcoming developments: “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to take Social & Local on the next stage of our journey. One central area of growth longer term is building our Learning Campaigns & Content offer to support clients with the broadest range of options to communicate, educate and change behaviour. These will be exciting times for SoLo and I can’t wait to get stuck in!”

Social & Local set to continue as a Community Interest Company

Social & Local proudly remains a Community Interest Company (CIC) working exclusively on projects offering social value and local impact.

For the coming year, this will include providing pro-bono training to a smaller charity or not-for-profit to share communications knowledge with the sector. More information on this new programme will be coming soon. You can find out more about Social & Local’s CIC status here: Social & Local Community Interest Company Status.
