Oh dear, I’ve been part of the team at BrightLemon for two months now and I haven’t even written a blog…
Why is that quite so awful? Well, it’s kind of at the heart of my job. Oops.
As specialists in creating online communities for the education sector, we are pleased to announce a new student-based online community project with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. After having completed projects with schooling and education institutes such as Teach First and British Council, and universities such as Cambridge, we’ve now expanded the fort to include an adult education in the roster (or, a bit more specifically, a global management accountancy qualification body).
In early 2013 we were approved as a supplier on the government’s G-Cloud service. Since becoming an approved supplier, governmental departments and public sector organisation in the UK are now able to search for and browse BrightLemon services and consider us for their website and online community development projects.
Ensuring international success
UK Trade and Investment are the government department that ‘works with UK businesses to ensure their success in international markets’.
The Youth Music Network is a UK charity whose aim is to improve the lives of children via music. Since founding in 1999, they’ve already helped 2.5 million children to make music, supporting their abilities via donations from a range of sponsors.
In order to maintain the growth of this positive impact they have on young people from across the country, Youth Music have chosen BrightLemon to upgrade and redevelop their online community in order to strengthen their existing services and benefit their users even further.
Médicins Sans Frontières have tasked us with rebuilding their blog website. Built for a very large global audience, this site needs to be flexible enough to work for the extensive range of individual users and organisations it serves. And, of course, it aims to reach many more as a result of the redevelopment and redesign. As a very positive charitable organisation, MSF are well suited to BrightLemon, with a large proportion of our client list dedicated to charities and health organisations.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group approached us with a request for the build of an internal online system to manage their musical theatre productions.
Owned and founded by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the Really Useful Group is an international organisation that produces and coordinates his musicals. His musicals form a large part of the world’s major musical productions, therefore their management system needs to be intuitive enough to manage the large amount of information and data.
Creating an international education platform
After a succession of very positive education sector projects in 2013, we are happy to announce a new partnership to add to the list. It takes the form of a Drupal website project for the Saudi Arabia’s University of Dammam. The majority of our previous education projects have been for clients based in the UK - an exception being our work with China’s division of British Council where we built a site for English-learners with Chinese language capabilities.
