Springleap has pivoted into a conduit for clients to access thousands of creatives for design, creative research and co­creation projects. "With our investors’ support, we can now focus on building more innovative models for our agency and brand clients to work with our community of pan­African and global creatives." says Springleap’s CEO, Eran Eyal. "We will also be focused on building our team to fuel expansion. Our core focus is leveraging our agency creative community to drive ROI on creative and marketing via localized actionable insights " With that scope for growth, negotiations have been initiated for the second phase of funding with commitments already received from prominent US, UK, EU and ZA­based investors.

"The model Springleap is developing can sit at the heart of any agency to help them flexibly scale and access new varieties of talent and skills across Africa." comments Clearwater CEO, Derek White.

With clients such as Samsung, SAB, Nestle, Kraft, and Ogilvy, Springleap was also the recent winner of the MentorCamp finals in Canada and was announced as runner up in the Innovation 100 Awards held in California against the likes of Amazon, eBay and the Apple Store. 

"We recently launched a new type of creative research panel testing that significantly increases ROI on any creative work and marketing before it launches which has been very well received", concludes Eyal, "Securing the first round of funding puts us on track to seeing our vision of getting our community of agency creatives to refine any creative assets with localized actionable insights and feedback in record time to avoid disasters and ROI. It's a game changer in terms of value and speed of delivery."

Naturetrek's Wildlife Holiday Brochure Creates Huge Interest

01, January 2015: The experts at top specialist wildlife tour company Naturetrek are delighted with the response to their latest holiday itineraries, to destinations all over the world. Their most recent brochure offers a huge array of wildlife holiday experiences to places as exotic as Brazil and the Republic of Congo, to name just two. The company's diverse range of comprehensively organised tours is the hallmark of their continued success.

Naturetrek customers now also have the opportunity to sign up for tours of the Scandinavian wilderness, African safari parks, the unique habitats of Madagascar, and the Spanish mountains. David Mills, Managing Director of Naturetrek, says, "We see our brochure as a holiday ‘bible’ for any natural history fan, whatever their age, ability and aspirations. Birds, plants and mammals are inevitably the main focus of our trips, but we try to incorporate all other aspects of the natural world and to uncover the unique culture and allure of a destination, rather than simply to tick off wildlife checklists."

Each of the specially organised nature tours holds a unique appeal. Those who sign up for the wildlife experience in Brazil can expect to encounter intriguing species such as the Brazilian Tapir and Giant Anteater, while other people may opt for the experience of a relatively relaxing plant-hunting expedition in China.

Naturetrek continue to hold true to their mantra of developing wildlife experiences for travellers of vastly differing interests, and particularly adventurous travellers may be excited about the prospect of staying in the tree top camps in the Republic of Congo, observing boisterous primates including the Grey Cheeked Mangabey and Western Lowland Gorillas. Alternatively some travellers may take the opportunity of exciting sightings of fearsome predators such as the Lion and Cheetah as they prowl their territory in Tanzania.

Tour bookings with Naturetrek include transportation, accommodation and expert guiding. Anyone wishing to learn more should visit the Naturetrek website.

Family Holiday Insurance: Winter Sports Warning

31, December 2014: The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) has launched an awareness campaign with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to warn travellers heading for the slopes this winter to take out suitable insurance. This could consist of an individual policy or a family holiday insurance policy, but the important thing is that it is a dedicated policy for winter sports. 

Astonishingly, it claims that the number of people who will not take out suitable cover will number in the hundreds of thousands this year. This comes following its recent research that found that one million people will go skiing or snowboarding this year but that 29% of them will not have adequate cover. 

Injuries incurred while taking part in winter sports activities can lead to huge medical bills if travellers do not have an adequate individual or family holiday insurance policy that is specifically designed to cover winter sports. 

The ABTA found that the most likely travellers to go on a winter sports holiday are the under 35s, but it also found that they are the least likely to take out winter sports insurance. 

Younger travellers are less likely to take out insurance for other types of holidays as well, according to the ABTA. One of its studies shows that for those aged 16 to 24, almost a fifth think that travel insurance is not necessary. 

Many travellers wrongly assume that the government will cover treatment, or that insurance is not needed because they have an EHIC card. However, although the EHIC will provide cover for state level care in European countries, it does not provide the same cover as a dedicated travel insurance policy. 

Another (slightly more obscure) group of travellers is also being warned about the dangers of not having suitable insurance, and this could affect families this winter. Many families choose to visit Lapland to see Father Christmas, and they often go on reindeer rides and do other activities like snowmobiling. Experts warn that they, too, need to ensure they have organised appropriate family holiday insurance to covers the activities involved.
