CNP Named to Ad Age’s Best Places to Work List

We’re pleased to announce today that CNP was named to Ad Age’s 2016 Best Places to Work list.

Humble competence is one of our agency’s core values, but we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you this award is kind of a big deal. Ad Age considered agencies, media companies and in-house teams with more than 15 full-time employees for this honor—and of the 50 companies recognized nationwide, CNP came in at number 20. According to Agency Spotter, there are upwards of 120,000 agencies in the US.  Continue Reading

The Business Observer’s Observations About Our Business

CNP Makes Florida Trend’s Best Companies List – Again

How do I say this without bragging? CNP has been named one of the Best Companies to Work For in Florida for the second year in a row! OK, that’s definitely bragging, but we’re still very proud to make the list. Over the past year or so, we’ve been working hard to refine our vision and internal processes in an effort to ensure CNP is a place that delivers GREAT work to our clients, but also is a place where our employees love to work. With 100 companies on the list, we moved up to No. 10 from the 27th spot last year in the Small Biz category (Cue applause). Continue Reading

CNP Named One of Florida’s Best Companies to Work For

One of only 100 companies to make the cut, CNP was ranked 27th in the Best Small Companies category.

Florida Trend released its annual list of Florida’s Best Companies to Work For in its August issue, and I’m very excited to announce that CNP made the cut!

I would like to think it’s our no-cap vacation policy (don’t abuse it), afternoon Frisbee breaks (I’d rather that than an afternoon cigarette break), cupcakes on your birthday (or a cheese platter), Bring Your CNPuppy to Work days (which is really any day), or our weekly Happy Hours (always be responsible) that make us one of Florida’s best places to work.

But, the biggest perk we offer our staff is the ability to come in every day and collaborate with one of the most intelligent, creative and fun-loving groups of people in the state. Everyone here is collectively passionate about pushing the boundaries on every project and continuing to innovate and dominate every project they work on.

Florida Trend’s evaluation includes a review of company policies, practices, and demographics, as well as results from an anonymous employee survey that asks questions about company culture, job satisfaction, work environment, and pay and benefits.

CNP Takes Home Gold and Silvers at the 2015 Polk County ADDY Awards

New CNP Offices, Coming This May

2015 Brings New Talent to CNP

From the team at CNP, we want to wish you a happy 2015! We recently brought a new and energetic face into the office, specifically on our Account Services team. Welcome Maggie! 

Maggie Ross

Culture2A recent college grad, Maggie is the youngest member of the team and fresh into the workforce. As CNP’s new Account Coordinator, she assists familiar faces Whitney and Katrina with their client work. In addition to helping out around the office, Maggie can be found learning even more about agency life than she even knew existed – such as how to throw a frisbee during frisbee breaks at the office or mastering her best poker face in a round of Werewolf after work on Fridays. She brings knowledge of online blogging and social media marketing to the team as well as degrees in Journalism, Advertising, Public Relations and Ad Design. Learn more about Maggie in her agency profile

Getting back into the routine around the office since the holidays is always a push, but the team came back with more drive than ever! We can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for us. 

Time for a Frisbee Break

There are so many reasons why I love working for CNP but, above all, I love that our company’s personality and culture is what lays the foundation for the great (and often award-winning) work we churn out on a daily basis. Let’s face it – creative problem solving for clients isn’t the most back-breaking work, but it does keep us doing mental pushups pretty much 24/7.

We go home thinking about how to make our design concepts stand out more, which headlines will speak best to a brand’s position and what we can do to provide amazing results with each project we take on – we’re living our work every day of the week. It’s not necessarily something we can turn off and, as we all do, we tend to find ways to free up some mental storage space from time to time.  Continue Reading

Becoming a Tourism Marketing Professional

For the last three years I’ve been spending a few days each summer in Dahlonega, Georgia – not to enjoy the Georgia wine trail or to pan for gold, but to take part in Southeast Tourism Society’s annual Marketing College and to receive a Tourism Marketing Professional certification.

Held on the campus of the University of North Georgia, this three-year program gives tourism  professionals like myself the opportunity to learn techniques from all facets of the tourism industry. From generational marketing strategies to data and research, Marketing College introduces new insights from experts with real-world knowledge and experience. Marketing College has allowed me the chance to gain important insight into trends affecting the tourism industry. During my tenure as marketing manager at Bok Tower Gardens I was able to implement tourism marketing strategies to gain traction in positioning the National Historic Landmark to travelers throughout the Central Florida region. Now, since I joined the CNP team earlier this year, I’ll be able to continue to make a meaningful impact marketing our destination to Florida travelers with our partners at Visit Central Florida.
