Selesti Celebrates 11th Birthday with Beach, Beer & BBQ

It’s been 11 years since Ollie started Selesti in his spare bedroom, and since then we’ve won a large number of awards (34 and counting!), and helped an even larger number of businesses to achieve their online objectives. To celebrate all that hard work — and the sun making one of its first appearances this year — we swapped keyboards for coolboxes and made our way to the beach.

We spent the day at Sea Palling, just a 45-minute drive from the office. We played rounders, ate chips, and got some pretty impressive tan lines.

While a few members of the team were initially a bit concerned about the involuntary tech detox (there’s no phone signal in Sea Palling, which crushed several people’s dreams of catching rare water Pokemon on the beach) it didn’t take long for everyone to ditch the smartphones and get involved in the team sports. Some of us are...quite competitive.

Being away from the office didn’t stop our digital marketing team from creating content — Seb kindly volunteered to reenact the opening credits of Baywatch, which we caught in fabulous slow motion using a GoPro.

After shaking (most of) the sand out our clothes, we returned to Norwich for the evening to enjoy a great barbecue and a few beers at The Reindeer. We’re looking forward to doing it all again next year — just maybe with a bit more sunscreen!

If you’re a talented digital marketer who likes the beach as much as we do, send us your CV — we’re always looking to expand the team!
