GFM’s Amanda Brannum spent time working in-house with our clients at Tennyson Center for Children.
At GFM, we occasionally have the opportunity to work in-house with our clients – perhaps helping out during a maternity or paternity leave or filling in during a staffing transition. I’ve had semi-long-term (several months) onsite assignments with a handful of PR clients over the years, most recently last fall when I spent four months in-house at a local private school. Whatever the reason for the in-house assignment, it’s always a really interesting learning experience from a number of perspectives. Four top takeaways from my in-house time with companies in three different industries follows:
Alexis Anderson is a senior director of communications and digital startegy at GroundFloor Media. She and her husband took a recent trip to D.C. and took in all of the sites the District has to offer. You can also read about her impression of the Newseum.
Jim Licko is a senior director of social media & digital strategy at GFM. Born in Iowa, Jim is now a proud Coloradan, loves photography, is a self-proclaimed beer aficionado and is passionate about the outdoors.
First time in Idaho, fly fishing the Big Wood River.
Piper: A pretty good roommate to come home to.
From Idaho straight to Cheley Colorado Camps. This is a friend’s son Charlie showing off his marksmanship.
Stopped to see our Oskar Blues client on the way up to Cheley Camp…and they were brewing their seasonal Ten FIDY. Hello, ski season!
View from my morning walk with Piper, and the benefactor of most of my paycheck.
Started a Wilderness Trekking Class this week, via that Colorado Mountain Club.
Carissa McCabe, senior director of communications/digital strategist at GFM.
Garden cornucopia! Photo of vegetables picked from my garden and eaten for dinner last night.
When I was grocery shopping this weekend, I noticed how deliciously colorful my reusable grocery bags are! I should have bought some rainbow sherbet inspired by the bags.
One of my favorite gifts is the small replica of the Blue Bear I received from some friends at Denver Theaters and Arenas in thanks for some things I helped them with. I can’t even remember what I did to help – but I will never forget their special gift!
In another effort to be more “green,” I love using my clothes line in the summer. Not only is it good for the environment, but the laundry smells amazing!
Any parent of a little boy will understand the dinosaur photo. They are like little members of the family nowadays!
Amanda Brannum is a senior director of communications at GFM and resident art aficionado. Her week in photos takes us along on her Colorado Staycation and also celebrates some big milestones for her family.
A trip to the Denver Art Museum while on staycation (“Big Sweep” – Claes Oldenburg & Coosje van Bruggen).
Ramonna (yep, with two Ns) Robinson, vice president and managing partner at GFM.
My faithful companion, Ri (short for Henry).
I love to hike – and to take photos. This one was taken in Rocky Mountain National Park.
I’m a hippie at heart! I learned to slackline at the Wanderlust Yoga festival at Copper Mountain.
Friends. Wine. Yoga festival. What more do you need?
Bouldering is great exercise – for both the body and mind!
Live music is another favorite pastime. This is MC Yogi at Wanderlust. I’m excited to see JJ Grey & Mofro, Brandi Carlile, Zac Brown Band, Jack White, Dierks Bentley and Mumford & Sons this summer – and to attend Austin City Limits this fall!
