A strong team makes an impact

By Lorna Gardner7 July, 2016

With ratings for BBC’s flagship Top Gear programme falling to an all-time low, the consultants at Media House have been contemplating the importance of strong team work when it comes to staff and essentially client retention, in generating a successful business model.

At its peak, the show attracted some eight million viewers when presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May and was worth an estimated £50million in worldwide sales.

However, with viewing figures falling to 1.9million for the final episode in the current series and having lost its popular presenting trio, perhaps the figures speak for themselves.

One of our attributes is a high level of staff retention across both our London and Glasgow offices, where the teams work across a number of client accounts, many of which we have been providing PR representation for over 10 years now.

In the fast-changing social media world that we live in, good client relations are imperative in order to stand out in a very crowded market place, where personality sells.

Talking about personalities, the new series of the much-loved Still Game sitcom returns to our screens later in the year and the cast have been spotted out filming on location on the streets of Glasgow.

It’s testament to the hard work and determination required for a brand to succeed

The original cast members of Jack, Victor, Isa and Navid, to name but a few, are returning to their old roles after a nine-year break, exemplifying the importance of a strong team spirit and testament to the hard work and determination required for a brand to succeed.

However, over at Top Gear with Chris Evans now stepping down after just one series at the helm due to falling viewing figures and speculations of a breakdown of relationships with co-host Matt LeBlanc, time will tell if LeBlanc, currently in negotiations with the BBC, can become a successful anchor which the show most desperately needs.

We’ll also be tuning into Amazon Prime in the Autumn to see if the reunited Top Gear trio, branded the “Dream Team” by some, deliver on their new show The Grand Tour and if the public’s appreciation continues after such a bumpy departure from the BBC.

As the marketing slogan says: “People Make Glasgow” … and Media House!
