As part of our ongoing commitment to providing the best possible expertise and outcomes for our clients, we work closely with our partners across search and paid media to ensure our staff have the latest in knowledge, training and accreditations.

On any given day, you’d likely see someone in our office watching the latest Google Partners Elevenses to get the latest info on Google’s offering, or on a video conference with Facebook to get the inside scoop on their latest advertising tech.

As an example, within our Google Premier Partner status we hold company specialisations in Search Advertising, Display Advertising, Mobile Advertising and Video Advertising.


That’s why we were extremely excited to hear about the Google Elevator Programme.

The Google Elevator Programme

Each year, Google handpick a select group of their top performing UK Premier Partner agencies, to take part in their prestigious Elevator Programme. This year, Coast Digital were selected for this 6-month agency mentoring programme, led by Robert Craven and with coaching from Janusz Stabik and Philippa Dale Thomas.

The scheme is for agencies which Google perceives to have the highest potential for further growth, and who have been consistently providing outstanding results for their clients. Over the six months, the agency heads are invited to a range of 1-to-1 coaching sessions and group sessions, to arm them with the tools to provide even greater returns.

We’re really excited to be part of the programme and to implement what we learn – no doubt you’ll be seeing more about our latest learnings on this blog in the near future!
