The PHA Buzz February 2013

PHA Media making the internet a safer place for children

An extension to the House PHA set for Hammer House expansion... Following on from a hugely successful 2012 which saw us win a myriad of industry awards; PHA has already taken steps to ensure that 2013 follows in a similar fashion, by taking over an additional floor of Hammer House to support our ever- growing staff and client base. The fourth floor expansion signifies just how much PHA has grown and evolved over the past eight years, starting from our humble beginnings in 2005 with just three members of staff in a small office in Kingly St, to over fifty members working across five departments in our increasingly busyWardour Street office. The new office space will comprise of two additional meeting rooms, additional desk space, a dedicated digital / production suite; and new staff kitchen and break-out area. Securing this much needed extra space has proven to be an extremely popular move amongst staff, who are keen to see the agency continue to grow over the coming months. Managing Director, Mark Gregory, comments: “Acquiring an additional floor within Hammer House is a really exciting move for us, and a sign of great things to come in 2013. The new space will allow us to continue to expand - enabling us to recruit more staff, improving our facilities and developing the range of services we are able to offer; which will ultimately be of great benefit to our client base.”

PHA Media worked alongside X-Factor star Ella Henderson, who was promoting the launch of a major Disney communications campaign in support of the tenth annual Safer Internet Day. The announcement formed part of Disney’s pledge to donate £3 million of its media inventory in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), to support the work of its European safety partners and complement the unrivalled investment in safety by Club

Penguin, Disney’s virtual world for kids.

Ella appeared on Daybreak, Sky News, BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat and Sky News Radio on the morning of Safer Internet Day where she discussed the difficulty of being thrust into the limelight last year after her audition on X Factor and how she had to deal with the sudden interest in her, including 100,000 people trying to communicate with her on Twitter in just one night. The team also secured print interviews in the Daily Express and First News.
