The brands jumping on International Women’s Day 2017

Posted by Becky MerchantTagged , , , ,

Like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter and Father’s Day, International Women’s Day has become an annual calendar event that brands love to get behind.

Is this ok? It’s debatable. But there’s no denying it’s the world – and industry – we live in.

It’s to be accepted as long as, sitting alongside each company’s pretty Instagram post and PR stunt, are meaningful measures to facilitate gender equality.

Stand’s February #CrackingClientCoverage!

Posted by Emily AtkinsonTagged , ,

After an amazing start to the year, February has proved to be another successful month full of #CrackingClientCoverage and other exciting projects! Here are some of our favourite bits.

moneycorp

It’s been a busy month on the moneycorp account and one area we’ve seen particular success is on Twitter. In February, we achieved a record 450 new followers in just the one month. With a much more hands-on approach to this social platform in 2017 we are seeing incredible results already – December saw 113 new followers, whereas January received 295, and last month we were heading towards 500! With a winning combination of travel inspiration and engaging news stories, we are excited to keep up this pace on moneycorp’s social media in March.

Still confused on Brexit? Join the crowd

Posted by Anthony Di NataleTagged , ,

When it comes to the UK’s economic outlook – very much like the referendum itself – there exists two polarised schools of thought. The first sees the UK currently hanging by its fingernails from the edge of an EU-shaped cliff, awaiting an inevitable self-imposed fall in to the black abyss below. The second, far more optimistic view, is of a fresh new world of independence, full of free trade deals and hearty Britishness.

Oscar’s envelope blunder: PRs – keep on your toes, it’s vital

Posted by Olivia Peterson

At Sunday’s Oscars, La La Land was mistakenly called out for best picture, when the real winner was Moonlight. Awkward chaos ensued.  All live for us to watch, tweet, share and have a laugh at. The Oscars blunder was not meant to happen, and as one La La Land Producer declared mid speech, “it was not a joke”.

A world of inspiration

Posted by Francesca Rivett-CarnacTagged , , , , ,

Since we started working with The Reading Agency last year, one message has really stuck in my mind.

We should be encouraged to read in a way that feels right for us” 

Reading in a way that feels right for us. Not right for our school teachers, or well-meaning parents, friends or the people we follow on Instagram. For some, that might be a newspaper. For others, it might be a comic, a short story, or the biography of a sports star. A few might choose to read War and Peace, but I wonder how many of us have struggled on with a book because we’ve believed without question that it’s the ‘right’ thing to read?
