WoW says farewell to our Digital Manager
"Tomorrow our Digital Manager, Alice Mason, will be leaving us at Writing on the Wall and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank Alice for all of her incredible work over the past four years. We’re all very sad that she is leaving but incredibly proud of her achievements and excited for the new adventure she is about to go on. Alice joined us in 2016 as a volunteer after she graduated from university, and in four short years, from being so quiet and shy, quickly moved up the ranks to become our Digital Manager, in charge of overseeing our social media channels and digital strategy. Under her leadership we have witnessed experiential growth in our social media presence and reach, which has increased the professionalism of our communications and massively increased our profile across the Liverpool City Region, nationally, and internationally. However, Alice has many talents, which we have had the pleasure of seeing develop over the years, and her job title belies the varied roles she has played within Writing on the Wall. Alice has led on the successful development of our Enterprise Hub and many other projects, including our latest, Level Up. She’s plays a massive role in both organising and delivering our annual festivals and this year was vital to the growth and development of our Black History Month festival.
During the Lockdowns Alice’s experience with digital media came to the fore, and she was hugely influential in grasping what needed to be done to transition our work online. This has meant so much to our organisational capabilities and to the many audiences and project participants who have benefited from the support we have been able to provide during this crisis. The same can be said of her work in helping the team establish The Writer’s Bloc, the North West region’s first dedicated online writing centre, for which Alice also coordinated the commissioning of the new logo. Such are Alice’s talents and commitment it is impossible to list the many things she has done with Writing on the Wall, she is a huge loss to us, and a huge gain to her new employer. Alice to has played a key role in our daily and weekly discussions and been a really valued member of our team. Most of all, she has been a joy to work with, always friendly, cheerful, willing to help out in any area of our work, both supporting senior members of the team and new recruits, and working with us all to maintain morale, particularly during the past year. We are confident she will achieve success in her career and wish her all the very best for the future."
