Our thanks to the supporter who forwarded to us an unsolicited email he received from the Magdalen Marketing Agency (‘MMA’). He was understandably furious at the casual misandry at the heart of the email. The content of that email, which had in its subject line the words we’ve included in the subject line of this blog piece:
Dear <name redacted>,
MMA are delighted to welcome you back to the second issue of Contender, our monthly newsletter [my emphasis] loosely based on recruitment marketing but generally just an excuse to say hi.
As ever, there’s two free packs of biscuits (pink wafers and party rings) to the first non-googling guesser of the film quote in the subject line, [my emphasis] always from a classic…
Lots of love,
All the team at MMA
The ‘key people’ in the ‘team’ at MMA are here. Five are men, two women. One of the women is Chelsea Battle, Head of Marketing. Her profile:
Chelsea graduated from Bournemouth University with a 2:1 in Marketing. She has worked in a number of industries including travel, education, property and the not-for-profit sector. With a range of experience under her belt she is excited to transfer these skills to a marketing agency.At MMA, Chelsea handles all things marketing such as social media, email campaigns, newsletters [my emphasis] and much more. Away from the office, she lives with a group of friends and can be found watching a film or spending time on the cultural filled Cowley Road. She has a keen interest in traveling with her latest adventure taking her to Thailand.
It is to be hoped that none of the five men in the company gave their clearance for the use of the misandrous film quote at the heart of the newsletter.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
