Sponsored event stands for Local Buy Local Consumer Card Scheme

Endorsement

Over the last 18 months, Ipswich Town & Waterfront have worked tirelessly to increase their social following, engage with the local community and promote the small business in and around Ipswich. This work has given rise to opportunities at number of outdoor events for promotional activities in which Ipswich Town & waterfront have forfeited their space to allow me to promote my organisation, GenR8, to an audience that would have otherwise been unreachable to me. This selfless approach in pursuit of always helping of other businesses/ organisations is what has afforded Natalie, Kevin and Ipswich Town & Waterfront such a strong reputation locally and I look forward to continued working together to the benefit of those we both represent.

Promoted local art club

Endorsement

The Orwell Art Club fully appreciates the support that we have received from Ipswich Town & Waterfront. Through promoting our events on their website and sharing our social media posts we have increased our number of members and have more people attending our art events. Ipswich Town and Waterfront is a fantastic platform to make people aware of our activities and we look forward to continuing this co-operation to promote art in the community. We are extremely grateful to Natalie and her team.

Supporting local photographers and artists

Endorsement

Natalie Chaplin has been very helpful in enabling Beyond the Image to be represented on the Ipswich Town and Waterfront site. Beyond the Image is a not-for-profit organisation on a limited budget and carefully considers its options for publicity, but does need to be made visible to photographers and artists who are looking to exhibit their work in a local and supportive environment. The gallery is situated on the A140 half way between Ipswich and Norwich and values the opportunity to have good local promotion in the Ipswich area through the Ipswich Town and Waterfront site. We look forward to continuing to have publicity for our exhibitions and events uploaded to the site especially as in May 2015 the gallery celebrates its 10th Anniversary. We are grateful for Natalie Chaplin's initial contact and supportive assistance.

Work experience for undergraduates

Endorsement

Natalie Chaplin has worked closely and sensitively with several undergraduates studying English at UCS during the last academic year. She offers them the opportunity to see theatre, dance and other arts events at local venues and then, within a limited time frame, write reviews for her online magazine. The idea is to replicate as closely as possible the conditions of a 'real life' journalist/reviewer. This project enables students to have a taste of work with just the right amount of expectation and professional pressure. This liaison is very successful in giving students applied experience to add to their CVs. Natalie sets high standards and those taking part appreciate the way she encourages their ambition and nurtures their talent. I very much hope we can continue our partnership with Natalie. Gill Lowe

Endorsement

Ipswich Town and Waterfront works tirelessly to support the promotion of the town of Ipswich, and our students have gained some very valuable experience in writing for the web, benefiting greatly from her skills, connections, experience and under her mentorship. Natalie works closely with the course team of Event and Tourism management at UCS to help us achieve a high employability record.

Endorsement

This project taught me a lot about Ipswich's heritage. It was really enjoyable, giving me valuable journalistic experience. Natalie and Kevin are obviously very passionate and knowledgeable and were always on hand for advice and feedback.

Ipswich Town and Waterfront were very supportive of our Enterprise Academy. They offered an excellent project which allowed the students to have a real world experience-not just a case study.They attended meetings with the students and gave very useful feedback in the final presentation.

Endorsement

Natalie Chaplin was the driving force behind my warm and welcoming placement at Ipswich Town & Waterfront. The company has an admirable vision of what Ipswich could be and more importantly, Natalie Chaplin has the determination to make the vision a reality. Ipswich Town & Waterfront is a company that genuinely cares for Ipswich and it's potential, founded by people who live and work in the town themselves. Ipswich Town & Waterfront has done amazing things in the last year and will continue to do so for a long time yet.
