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 Williams

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?

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…
