bdaily.info is the home of leading business news stories from across the North East - the first port of call for information on local businesses, events, jobs and campaigns.
North East networking experts, The Bridge Club, run a popular Parkinson-style interview event discovering the story behind the North East's most exciting companies. Here Siobhan Bales and Diane Gates of Newcastle-based creative agency The bgroup talk about their rapid expansion whilst striving to keep the fun factor in their business.
WITH a scruffy, weather-worn rucksack slung across her back and sporting short, spiky hair, Diane Gates was hardly the best turned out of the 70-odd respondents to an advert in the North East Jobs Appointments - an advert that, in itself, was a little unusual.

The bgroup has fought off national competition against 12 other agencies to deliver a competition which brings principles behind TV programmes such as Dragons' Den and The Apprentice into South East classrooms. The agency, which recently opened a London office, was appointed by the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA) to deliver The Edge campaign to recruit nine school teams of 13-15 year olds from nine counties. The successful teams, who will be selected via a video audition process, will come together in Autumn 2006 to compete in five challenges designed to test and sharpen students' enterprise skills.
Each of the five challenges in The Edge will be testing and strengthening specific skills, including team working, problem solving, strategic thinking and leadership. The teams will be awarded points as they complete the challenges, with the most enterprising team at the end winning national recognition and top prizes for themselves and their school.

Around two hundred young people took part in a 'flash mob' on Newcastle's Quayside to kick-start a national campaign for Enterprise Week.
The group of young people aged between 18 and 30 were gathered by The bgroup in just 24 hours to take part in a mysterious photo shoot. The location of the shoot was kept a close secret until the night before, but at 9am the following day the "flash mobbers" got together, ran up and down steps near the Copthorne Hotel for 20 minutes and then vanished, much to the surprise of onlookers.
