Innovation and Oaklin Express
Oaklin recently launched an Innovation Forum, encouraging our team to participate and share inventive ideas with the firm. Gabriela describes how she identified a problem and used the collective knowledge of the Oaklin team to transform her idea into reality – all within a matter of weeks.
"Being able to see my idea come to life in this way was a very rewarding moment, and I hope that we will be able to help even more of our clients with their urgent challenges."
Consequently, I went to our first Innovation Forum to present my idea of a new service offering, ‘Oaklin Express’, which would be easy to access, and limited in time and cost. By fixing a piece of work to just three weeks and two people, the commercials can be kept very simple and the team can mobilise extremely quickly. I felt this would apply perfectly during the uncertain times of the current pandemic.
We then worked with our graphic design and marketing teams to prepare an official logo and new webpage that could showcase this new offering. Being able to see my idea come to life in this way was a very rewarding moment, and I hope that we will be able to help even more of our clients with their urgent challenges.
Gabriela employs her strong interpersonal, analytical and organisational skills to solve problems and achieve tangible results. Her most recent roles at Oaklin have included work in the operations team (Marketing, Finance), knowledge management and innovation.
Gabriela joined us after graduating from an MA in arts and cultural management at King’s College London. She has experience across communications, arts and the charity sector, and is very adaptable to a wide range of stakeholders and environments.
