Proud to launch the next addition in the Companion Stories campaign.
Samsung brings the inspiring and moving story of Trisha Silvers and her Broadbridge Education centre to life in the latest Companion Stories film.
Meet Trisha Silvers, whose inspiring and touching story of strength, perseverance and goodwill has kickstarted the ‘Broadbridge Foundation and Broadbridge Education Centre’, an extraordinary school she built in honour of her late husband, Melbourne AFL player Troy Broadbridge, who tragically died in the tsunami that ravaged Thailand’s Phi Phi Island in 2004.
Troy and Trisha were married on 18 December 2004. On 26 December, while spending honeymooning in Phi Phi, Troy was swept out to sea by the tsunami.
In the aftermath, she established the charitable Reach Broadbridge Fund and, with the help of Troy’s Melbourne Football Club teammates, built the Broadbridge Education Centre on Phi Phi.

We’re honoured to receive awards in Branded Content for Samsung’s Liquid Pixels and for Cap One SuperStars in Branded Game or Application. But even better, we are especially proud to have won a ‘People Lovies’ (an award voted by the public) for our popular Liquid Pixels project.

Life in a Post-digital world. A bit of stuff by me. -
Digital is dead. At least, that was the view of P&G’s Global Brand Officer Marc Pritchard, who proclaimed as much during a recent talk at Dmexco. An interesting and provocative statement to make to an audience full of digital folk from emerging markets, I’m sure you’ll agree.
