Entrepreneurs team up to launch innovative new events service
By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 1 Aug 2018
A pair of entrepreneurs have teamed up to launch a new events service centred on social media and photography.
Jess Clark, director of Divine Clark PR, and Andy Crozier, of Insight Photography, came up with the idea after they worked together to cover The Business Day at Bridlington Spa in June.
The duo have now created Divine Insight – a venture designed to offer a quality package to companies hosting big events such as conferences, product launches and awards.
Jess said: “If you are an event organiser, you will have everything in place but you will forget to get a camera out and just end up with a couple of rubbish photos on your phone.
“Andy will take care of photos, and I will manage all the social media at the event. We worked together at The Business Day and had this moment afterwards where we realised it was something we could do more with.
“I think all good business ideas happen by accident. We sat down and had a chat about it, and decided the best thing would be to put the two brands together.”
The duo are now on the lookout for businesses hosting events which could benefit from the service.
Andy revealed early talks have been held with the likes of Reckitt-Benckiser and Smith & Nephew in Hull, and suggested they are the sorts of businesses they hope to work with.
Jess’ social media coverage not only engages with guests while at the event, but also provides a valuable bank of material that companies can use in the future.
Speaking about Divine Insight, Andy said: “We just had a lightbulb moment after The Business Day, so I went to see her and we both had this idea of what would work really well.
“That entrepreneurial spark was alight, and really from our perspective it is now about getting the word out and talking to people about what we are doing.
“We are both pretty well-known in Hull for what we do through our own businesses, so hopefully we can use those contacts.
“I think we are in a good place to do it. Hull has seen some brilliant new venues open up, whether it is the Bonus Arena or the DoubleTree by Hilton, and those are the sorts of places that will host big events.”
As well as working in Hull, Divine Insight is also casting its net wider to places such as Leeds, Harrogate and York.
