Award winning website, Remote Employment, Google’s No 1 job site for flexible and home based jobs, launched The Remote Worker Awards in association with BT Business to highlight how home working and remote working benefits the British public and their working life.

So how did we get Becci's World War Bunker and Karen's Beach Hut on TV?

Here's what we did ...

For the second year’s Remote Worker Awards, our goal was to get TV exposure.

So, we set about looking for the most unusual home business in our entries to make sure we would get the media's attention. 

We found two unusual cases - Karen worked remotely from a beach hut and Becci worked from a World WarII bunker – we arranged a video shoot and uploaded it to YouTube. Take a look at it below.

 

 

 

After sending a press release to regional TV media, ITV Meridian picked up the story and gave us a fabulous piece over a period of two weeks right across South East England!

Karen Morton, from Chichester, runs seminars at corporate conferences to help people think more creatively and improve the way they communicate. 

Karen was part of a BT sponsored initiative which involved training people in the Voluntary sector  on how to approach radio with a story, be interviewed on radio and how to create simple but effective PR Planners.   Karen is a finalist in the Remote Worker Awards

More recently she has delivered creative workshops on delighting customers for Profitnet – a University of Brighton initiative to support SME’s.

Working remotely is a greener option and thanks to the internet and mobile phone – Karen does not have to travel to Chichester every day saving 2 hours travelling per day and fuel costs.

Karen believes it is all about balance and once what you do works for your business and the people that work with you then remote working options are ideal.

When we saw Karen's beach hut and found out she worked so remotely - on the beach - we had to get her story into the media.

Watch Karen being interviewed by Malcolm from ITV.
