Ok ladies, now let’s get in formation

Posted by Becky MerchantTagged , ,

This weekend, Team Stand was proud to have been part of global history as we joined London’s Women’s March and stood up for solidarity and against inequality.

We sang, chanted, celeb spotted, made new friends and even spoke to people on the tube. Knowing we were marching alongside 2.6 million people worldwide – all peacefully and energetically protesting against hate and oppression – was incredible.

While we’d rather the world’s most powerful person hadn’t made the misogynistic or racist comments he has –  signage sure did show just how much people across the world are prepared to speak out in defiance against hate.

Here are Stand’s favourite moments from 2017’s best day yet…

Standing up for older people

Here at Stand we’ll always stick up for what we believe in and recently we’ve been standing up for the rights of older people with two separate campaigns.

With our clients Anchor and Solicitors for the Elderly, we’ve successfully got the public talking about issues affecting older people and, most importantly, we’ve got people pledging to take positive action.

Let’s Talk about Amazon Go

Posted by Jessica NazaireTagged , , , , ,

Last week Amazon announced the launch of its brand spanking new store Amazon Go.

The ‘Just Walk Out’ technology works as online shopping: every time you pick up an item, it logs it into your virtual basket, until you put it back down again. When you leave the store, there is no need to check out: your account gets automatically credited with the items in your virtual basket, cutting out all need for customer service… ie, human contact.

Meet Stand Agency’s… Jessica Nazaire!

Posted by LolaTagged , , , ,

Jessica joined as an intern a few months back, and we were so impressed we asked her to stay! Here’s a quick intro to our newest Account Executive.

How and why did you get involved in PR?

I did quite a bit of volunteering at school and uni, and I just wanted to shout about all the great things we did! Initially, I just wanted to get people as enthusiastic about charity as I was, and push for recruitment. Quickly, I started realising how much strategy was involved, and really got stuck into it.

Why did you want to stay at Stand Agency?

My first feeling at Stand was this overwhelming sense of encouragement, and can-do attitude. Anyone can do anything; you just have to give it a go. That’s what I love about Stand, no one doubts your capabilities, and everyone is there to help you be the better version of yourself. What more can you ask for?

Christmas in Ad-Land

Posted by Faith McKellowTagged , , ,

Christmas, like charity, begins at home. Well, it does for me and countless millions who anticipate the moment the Christmas TV ads go on air. Once they’ve premiered, it’s non-stop tinsel and turkey all the way to January.

These festive offerings are pored over by TV critics and social commentators alike, keen to offer meaningful interpretations on the narratives. The ads have a profound impact on the national mood and set the tone for the festive season in a way that can’t be underestimated.
