Business Sirens: Why we can expect to hear more from Big Business

Posted on 25th June 2018 by Claire Mason

A UK Government Minister has publicly criticised corporates that are threatening to pull out of Britain over Brexit, branding last week’s comments by Airbus “completely inappropriate.” In an unprecedented move, the public was urged to stop our ears and ignore the “siren voices” of multinational employers making public interventions in politics.

Closing The Gender SAY Gap: Why We Need Visible Women

Posted on 12th June 2018 by Claire Mason

Gender equality is having a moment. One hundred years after women were granted the vote, we have finally seen the statue of a woman, suffragist Millicent Fawcett, join the 11 men in Parliament Square.

Posted on 4th April 2018 by Robert McLeod

Innovation is a term often misunderstood. Confused with simple adoption of the latest technology or creating something ‘new’, and often limited to product or service development.

Posted on 13th February 2018 by Jonathan Helm

Business transformation has hit a rapid pace. Whether it’s through innovation, acquisition, or diversification, organisations are facing exponential pressure to expand and evolve as globalisation and technology fuel increasingly competitive marketplaces. In an era where companies are built to change, not necessarily to last, many businesses have only two options; evolve or face extinction. But […]

The great opportunity that comes from building marketing campaigns in 2018, is that the power of word-of-mouth has reached epic proportions. The title of this blog is evidence of that very phenomenon. The quote “if you build it, they will come”, is wrong. The actual quote from Field of Dreams is “if you build it, […]
