What do Mindfully Wired Communications do?

MWC is a unique, creative and flexible, non-profit communications consultancy with a focus on environmental and marine-focused projects. We specialise in insightful communications built around stunning imagery and compelling, human stories. We do everything from writing communication and social media strategies to storyboarding films and live streaming conferences!

How long have you been coming to Desklodge?

It will be coming up to a year.  

What is your favourite thing about your job?

Apart from speaking about fish all day?! (Sorry if you’ve heard us). I love finding creative ways to help our clients tell their stories! We’re currently working on a series of six films for WWF UK Seas and the North Devon Biosphere, where we’re following the journey from the source of a river in Dartmoor right out to Lundy Island in North Devon.  

MWC has been involved in the whole process, from tendering for the contract, to concept development, film scripting, finding characters and shooting the film! It’s an adventure and I love being a part of it.

What is your favourite thing about DeskLodge?

The friendly and energetic atmosphere!

What do you do in your spare time?

Cycling around Bristol, finding excellent pubs to relax in with friends and the odd bit of trampolining when I need to get some exercise in!

What is you favourite summer vacation past or present?

I am going to Greece at the end of August to celebrate the big 3-0, I am pretty excited about that, less excited about turning 30!

Thanks Harriet, have a great 30th birthday!
