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?

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 – oh boy did signage 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…

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 Olivia PetersonTagged , , , ,

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?
