How we've helped That Seagull Bob

Skills Hub case study

Business overview

To put it simply the team at That Seagull Bob make all kinds of online video and audio super simple.  

The pandemic has removed the fact that Cornwall’s location is detrimental to your business, so we’re now playing on the same terms of everybody else as the new world has normalised video calling. I think that’s a big positive for business in Cornwall, as London clients will be able to jump on a video call and save money when compared against using somebody in London.

How we helped

With a software development and retail management background, Tony Edwards is the Director of That Seagull Bob, a wickedly clever name for a company whose primary aim is to make online audio and video super simple.

Re-branding in August 2020 amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, That Seagull Bob was born from a desire to shift away from writing software and to move into doing things that the team considered a little more exciting.

“COVID was a big factor in the pivot, but it wasn’t the only factor. We had a friend refer a client to us for a livestream gig, and we broadcast an event for 12 hours and really enjoyed it. We had far more fun than if we were writing software, so we thought let’s do this,” said Tony.

With a highly-skilled team across a diverse range of areas in the digital space, Tony approached the Skills Hub for help in furthering their knowledge of general business skills.

“The offer that the Skills Hub has is a really, really good one. When you pivot there is lots of new skills that you need, and we also want to take on new people within the team and build them up from scratch. The Skills Hub is going to be instrumental in that,” he said.

A focus on acquiring new financial skills is key for Tony, with the immediate future being one that sees the company looking to shore up its client base and looking for business beyond the Tamar.  

"The next six-months is all about solidifying our offer, where we work with YouTube and Twitch influencers to ensure they are getting the most out of their content, alongside our work with forward-thinking local businesses.
