The Big Rail Diversity Challenge

brdc1

Launched in 2016, The Big Rail Diversity Challenge has adopted the apt tagline: ‘Where Krypton Factor meets It’s a Knockout’. The event hosts over 600 rail industry colleges, in teams made up of both males and females, competing in a series of mental, physical and skill-based challenges promoting the business benefits attained when engaging a gender diverse workforce.

The event is suitable for all abilities and provides participants with the opportunity to network, team build and fundraise, whilst completing a series of fun gender-balanced team activities promoting Women in Rail’s key message: Gender Diversity: Better for People Better for Business Better for Rail.

Thank you for a fantastic event on Thursday! All of our colleagues thoroughly enjoyed it and the day was very well organised.

Maria Clark Design Engineer, S&C Alliance - Amey
What a fabulous event! Such a unique opportunity for teams to have so much fun away from formalised environments. Everyone is on a level in their sports kit and team shirts, no suits or uniforms. The Nimble team did an incredible job and no detail was missed. They created an incredibly fun atmosphere on a massive scale. The room was full of laughter and team spirit. We can’t wait to be there next year- if they will have us!!
Faye Jacques Fundraising Manager Rail, Benefit Fund
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to you and everyone who organized the fantastic Big Rail Diversity Challenge. We all had a superb experience. As a 55-year-old male I approached the day with caution, but as it went on I threw myself into every event with the enthusiasm of a teenager. LOVED IT.

Simon Babes Managing Director of Movement Strategies
Women in Rail has worked with Nimble Media for the past three years. On behalf of the charity they have delivered The Big Rail Diversity Challenge and Women in Rail Awards, which are now key diary dates for the rail industry. It is a pleasure working with the Nimble team: they are dedicated, hard-working and professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

The Steam Special

Railway Children Steam Special, organised by Nimble Media

In June 2015, Nimble Media delivered a special event to commemorate 20 years of excellence for the international charity, The Railway Children – aptly titled, ‘The Steam Special’. As a complete sell-out, all 226 guests aboard the Belmond British Pullman Venice-Simplon-Orient-Express enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience with rousing performances from a variety of well-known acts, including: Scotland’s finest bag-rock band ‘The Red Hot Chilli Pipers’. As the evening drew to a close – the River Thames was closed to mariners as the guests paused on the Grosvenor Bridge to witness a first-class firework display, delivered by the 2012 Olympics pyrotechnics team.

A staggering £283,000 was raised for our chosen charity, Railway Children.

It was a pleasure to work with Nimble Media to deliver a fantastic event raising almost £300,000 for such a worthwhile charity. Their attention to detail was excellent.
Sir Brian Souter Stagecoach Group / Souter Investments Limited.
The recent Railway Children Steam Special was a fantastic occasion. Nimble Media delivered an impeccable event, they ensured guests were able to relax and enjoy every detail from the reception through to the surprise firework finale. Congratulations to Vicky Binley and her team for your delivery.
Mark Allatt Chairman A1 Steam Locomotive Trust.
Within the charity sector, it is essential to create innovative fundraising ideas, however the real skill often lies in the planning and creativeness to develop these concepts into successful fundraising events.
Nimble Media have successfully achieved both for Railway Children. The innovative team within Nimble had the foresight and tenacity to take a concept and develop it into an incredibly prestigious event, involving The Orient Express, Tornado Engine, Fireworks on the River Thames as the train passes over and so much more, making it an incredibly memorable event for some of the leading individuals and companies from within the Rail Industry. It is thanks to Nimble Media that the event raised £283,000 and marked the charities 20th year via what was the most fitting of occasions.

Station to Station Queens Celebration

Selfie Frames with Virgin Trains as part of Station to Station Queens Celebration

In October 2015, Nimble Media’s Director Vicky Binley met with Chris Leech MBE and was asked to assist in his initiative ‘Station to Station Queens Celebration’, celebrating HR the Queen’s 90th Birthday. With just five months Nimble Media managed, administered and marketed an event the scale of which was a first for the UK’s Rail industry to include:

  • A complex website and social media programme 

  • Engagement with 104 railway stations to host community events to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday
  • Radio promotion to 3.5 million listeners through Magic FM
  • On boarding all major UK rail trade member groups to support and promote the initiative
  • A programme to deliver charity fundraising and awareness activities.
  • Senior rail professional’s endorsement for the event to include the Department for Transport 

  • Recommendation and promotion from politicians and TV Celebrities.
The Queen was most interested and touched to hear about your ‘Station to Station’ event of celebrations, planned by your team to mark this milestone during the weekend of 10-12th June. Her Majesty was also pleased to learn that this project was successful in raising funds for several local and national charities. The Queen sends her good wishes to you and all those involved with the organisation of these special community parties, inspired by the concept of ‘The Patron’s Lunch.
Dame Annabel Whitehead Lady-in-Waiting
I initially came across Nimble Media through discussions of praise from businesses associated to the rail sector. Upon introduction to Vicky Binley, I was taken back by her passion; knowledge and tenacity and therefore given the scale of work we required to take the unique programme of Station to Station to the next level; it was an obvious choice to enlist the Nimble Media's management. Vicky's passion for delivering on her commitments enabled this historic programme to go from boardroom discussions to debate in the Royal Household and finally to the delivery. In short Nimble Media, despite being a small team, have punched well above their weight, their professionalism together with Vicky's ability to communicate on all levels, has earned both the respect and admiration of the entire industry. I have no doubts that Nimble Media will be a force for good within our sector as the year’s progress, as they justifiably win new contracts within the rail sector. Given that my role within the industry is based on integrity and transparency, I for one would have no hesitation in promoting them to my FTS 100 & 200 businesses contacts.
