Company Updates

  • Our Advertising Sales team at Sky Media have launched the SME100. It’s our £1 million fund which’ll help provide 100 businesses with TV advertising campaigns via AdSmart, to support them through these times.

  • Our #SkyBusiness Project Manager, Sean, has been supporting a nationwide group of volunteers that are making and distributing #PPE face shields for frontline health workers. “The group 3D Crowd have managed to put together a nationwide organisation in an unbelievably short time. Local hospitals, care homes etc can place an order with them which is then managed via a regional hub – with a team of volunteers working to 3D-print parts, assemble the masks, and get them to the places they're needed. All of this is free of charge, and is funded both by the volunteers themselves and via donations. I’ve been printing face shields for the last two weeks. It’s a real privilege to help out, however small my part in this is.” #LifeAtSky
