Souper Friday
From farm to fork

From farm to fork

A unique dining experience will soon invigorate Hull's picturesque marina, and eskimosoup's Account Director, Rich Quelch, has been project managing its development from day one.

1884 Dock Street Kitchen blends good British food with a theatre-style kitchen inspired by the sleek eateries of New York's Meat Packing District. With the finest organic ingredients, mouth-watering seasonal menus and an unparalleled selection of exquisite wines, the city is about to undergo a renaissance of flavour.

Opening on Friday 29th June, you can now book your table at this prestigious restaurant, the biggest thing to happen to Hull's dining culture since the Yorkshire pudding was invented! And definitely don't miss out on the celebratory atmosphere of its inaugural weekend, especially Head Chef James Allcock's hearty Sunday lunch!

Let's get ready to relaunch!

Let's get ready to relaunch!

We're so close to the launch of our new look website that we can taste the code in the air! Designed and built by our own Creative and Technical geniuses, it combines HTML, CSS, jQuery and Ruby on Rails to create smooth navigation, no-nonsense information, and more orange than an Oompa Loompa family reunion!

It's going to be even more awesome than before and provide a wonderfully clear and helpful online experience. It's a very exciting time and we want you to be part of it, so keep checking the eskimosoup website for the big change and please contact Account Manager Rich Sutherland with your feedback when you do.

Giving back is the way forward

Giving back is the way forward

Our Managing Director, John Gilbert, has been invited to speak at “Giving Back - Why it's good for business” as part of Business Week 2012. Taking place at the Hull University Business School, the event will showcase the community engagement work of a range of companies.

You can attend the whole event for FREE on Tuesday 12 June by booking here. In the meantime, here's a sneak preview of some of the experiences and thoughts that John will be sharing:


Live by your principles

Don't say you are wonderful at a particular behaviour and then betray these values. It will bite you on the bum and question the integrity of your brand.


Use sponsorship and philanthropy to showcase your capabilities

Money is sometimes needed, though offering your skills and experience can be worth even more, e.g. eskimosoup sponsor several websites in support of causes we believe in. (Image shows John and Rich Quelch raising money for Comic Relief on behalf of St Stephen's, so whilst they were giving back technically we were doing our job!)


Don't always say yes. Consider that things can go wrong!

Supporting local causes is admirable, but if they don't deliver on what they promise it can be negative for your brand by association. We are learning that we need to improve our risk management!

John's looking forward to sharing more with you on the day!


A right royal

We don't need to tell you that it's the Diamond Jubilee this weekend - we're sure you've got bunting around your patio, a mountain of watercress sandwiches covered in cling film, and cardboard masks of Her Majesty The Queen ready and waiting.

To celebrate we're offering a special prize to one lucky Twitter user. All you have to do is tweet this to your followers.

The winner will be contacted via Twitter on Friday 8th June. Splendid, wot wot!

Have a souper weekend!
