It seems lately that everything is URGENT! Prospective clients want quotes and proposals by the end of the week. People want to meet up tomorrow to discuss collaborations and ventures. Emails should be responded to within 24 hours, if not straight away. That wouldn’t be a problem – if only decisions were then made just […]

If you, like me, are gripped by the whole super injunction saga, the next few days are going to make great arm chair twitter following. It all reached a peak yesterday with The Sunday Herald publishing a photo of the man at the centre of the gossip and lawyers threatening legal action against Twitter and […]

Do Good set out to explore how brands and charities can develop mutually beneficial relationships. The speakers did a great job of bringing the discussion to life with examples and some vivid […]

Loved last night’s episode of The Apprentice. The shopping task is always my particular favourite as you see how the contestants (ahem candidates) cope when the pressure’s really on.

Flicking through today’s PR Week, one particular page made me laugh, and it had nothing to do with the ‘AV Yes’ campaign. Instead it was OnePoll’s advertisement on page five that made me chuckle. Not only did it take me back to those dark days of doomed research projects, but it absolutely exemplified what is […]

The new series of The Apprentice kicks off tonight with the usual array of brash, overweening candidates. The programme is now in its seventh series and you’d think that contestants might have realised that arrogance, bluster and belligerence are generally not the qualities required to succeed in ‘the process ’ – although, admittedly, in the […]

Whatever the rights and wrongs of super injunctions – today’s latest Twitterleak proved once again that it’s all a moot discussion anyhow. With Twitter and the blogosphere making it possible to anonymously publish content (at will) those in the public eye that deviate from a wholesome path can no longer rely on a clean up […]
