Standing up for older people

Posted by Becky MerchantTagged , , ,

Here at Stand we’ll always stick up 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 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?

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.

What we can learn from the Kim Kardashian West heist

Posted by Beccy ChurchillTagged , , , , ,

On Monday, Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint and robbed in her Paris hotel room. What must have been a truly horrific ordeal, has been (by the Parisian Police and others) attributed in part, to the star’s social media sharing habits. Regularly posting snaps of her children, location and latest blingy accessories across her social channels, it has me thinking – when did our attitudes towards online privacy become so lax –  what ever happened to being ‘cyber safe’?

Barnardo’s – Believe In Me

Posted by Becky MerchantTagged , , , ,

Believing in your own ability to succeed, to do something good, to make someone happy is often what gets us up in the morning. For most of us, this self-confidence has been instilled in us from an early age and helped us become who we are.

But this isn’t the same for everyone, which is why Barnardo’s new Believe In Me campaign has stirred emotions and why Stand is proud to be a part of it.

Bursting the bubble – RIP Fabric

Posted by Becky MerchantTagged , , , ,

Something’s up, I’m usually never wrong. It’s difficult for me to admit but I’m recently realising that I might be out of touch. It was waking up to the news of Fabric’s closure that triggered this depressing realisation. ‘Surely they can’t close it’ I went to bed saying last night. Lo and behold, overnight the decision was made to revoke the licence of London’s most legendary club and close it for good.  Read more “Bursting the bubble – RIP Fabric”
