Koozai and BrightonSEO go to the Dogs!

9th Dec 2011 News, Industry News 1 minute to read

Brighton SEO goes to the dogsLast night, Ben and I headed down to the dog racing for the BrightonSEO Christmas Party which was organised by Kelvin Newman from Site Visibility and was sponsored by the lovely guys at SearchMetrics.

It was such a good night and very nice to see everyone before the Christmas break.

There were 12 races in total and I think everyone won at least once throughout the evening, even Steve from SearchMetrics with his betting on number four in every race! We all seemed to have our own strategy for placing the bets with the following standing out for me:

  • Ben Norman            Randomly picking two dogs for each race (see picture below)
  • Nicola Stott              All dogs with ‘Fabulous’ in the name
  • Ben Pritchard          A seasoned gambler heading outside to the stands to bet
  • Claire Thompson    Taking it one race at a time and carefully choosing her strategy

Halfway through the night I was approached and asked to head down to the tracks to present the winning dog of Race 9 (The SearchMetrics Sprint) with his award. Kevin from SearchMetrics and I can be seen below giving Reggie the Dog his award for coming first in the race!

The whole night highlighted just how much of a fun and friendly industry SEO is. Having worked in other sectors over the years this is definitely the one that is growing and with everyone willing to share ideas and experiences, this is set to continue moving into the years ahead.

A big thanks to SearchMetrics for sponsoring last night. If you haven’t been to the dogs before I can highly recommend it as a great night out for all ages. I can definitely see the Koozai team heading down for one of our quarterly events next year!
