I tell you March was a crazy one and now its almost mid April. What’s going on? What with the release of our latest CSI Poster (you can order your FREE copy here
) as well as the release of our colour in sheets (download straight from website here
) we have also been working on some amazing new projects as well.
As promised from my last newsletter, I have some sneak peaks to show you of our comic book too…
BUT first we have some other amazing news to share. Ready for it…
We have an Australian Distributer
Meet Michelle Brooks of CDM Branding in Melbourne, Australia our now Official Distributer for Australasia. Can you believe it? We can’t wait to see the posters being shared and used by many down under.
So a little bit about Michelle. Since 2008, Michelle has managed the career promotion campaign Surveying, A Life Without Limits, under the direction of the Surveying Task Force in Victoria and the NSW Surveying Taskforce. Amazing. The focus has been on promoting surveying career paths and workplace opportunities to students with an interest in STEM subjects with view to increasing the number of Licensed or Registered Surveyors. Today, this great campaign operates across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Working in concert with Destination Spatial Qld, Michelle and her team at CDM developed and launched a complementary brand, Geospatial Science, in 2018.
If you are based in one of the Australasian countries it’s time to get ordering your FREE posters as postage is now a heck of a lot cheaper coming from Australia than the UK previously. Order here or for orders over 20, email Michelle direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
For those of you that are not based in the Australasia region you can still order direct through our website here 🙂
Ok! So what’s next?
Our comic book. No wait we’ll get to that in a minute.
We’re getting closer to May and that means one thing, well two things actually… TopoDOT User Conference in Orlando and GEO Business Show in London. Are you coming?
For the lucky ones who are attending these shows you will be the first to see and get your hands on our latest Smart Cities Posters; New York at TUC and London at GEO Business. Sadly the deadline for New York has just passed but if you are UK based there is still time to sponsor our London Poster. The deadline is the 24th April. Go Go Go! Our Sydney Sponsorship deadline in the 24th May so plenty of time for that one 🙂 Check out the sponsorship options here
and contact Elaine Ball
today if you want to get involved and help us with our mission!
Ok so I made you wait. I’m sorry but not really. Back to the comic book! Ooooo….
Let me introduce you to… the Last Surveyor
One of our most significant characters you’ll be getting to know in the upcoming Comic Series from Get Kids into Survey.
The Last Surveyor (name to be disclosed soon) is the sole surviving surveyor in the year 2049. In a future driven mad by unchecked greed and frenzied expansion, he led a band of rebel surveyors, trying desperately to bring order and pull the world back from the brink of total collapse. But, the rebels were hunted – silenced one-by-one – until only he remain. A master of technology, he realised that the only hope of saving the future was to reach into the past – to tap the potential of four bright young minds, and funnel it into his own robotic creations. With his consciousness uploaded to a hidden supercomputer, The Last Surveyor searches across time and dataspace for the perfect team to help him save the world…
Does anyone recognize The Last Surveyor? His character might just be based on someone very closely related to Elaine and I? 😉
I’ll be releasing more top secret updates on this newsletter in the coming weeks leading up to TUC and Geo Business. You’ll also notice some updates on our socials so keep an eye on them (links below).
If you want to get more involved with our upcoming Comic please enquire with myself or Elaine to find out how you can sponsor and help us get this comic into the hands of as many kids across the globe.
Until next time.
Thanks for reading,
