#Pogback heralds a new era for sports PR

Posted by MiriTagged , , , ,

The English football season is now in full swing, big names have swapped clubs and PR teams have been working all hours to create a buzz behind their summer signings. But it’s clear which club and player won the PR battle in terms of column inches, social media shares, likes and views – Manchester United and Paul Pogba.

Reflecting on opening night

Posted by Laura OliphantTagged ,

On the day of the Olympic opening ceremony in Rio, and almost four years to the day since I put on my Gamesmaker uniform, I’ve been thinking back to the sense of excitement I felt being part of London 2012.  The country was buzzing with national pride and a slight smugness that we’d managed to pull off something quite so spectacular – ahead of time.  For an event that so few people were lucky enough to be directly involved in, it felt like the whole country was behind this brilliant British export.

Pokémon GO: The next big social network

Posted by Beccy ChurchillTagged , , , , , , , , ,

If you had told me a few weeks ago that the July marked the second-coming of Pokémon, I wouldn’t have believed you. But here we are on the 13th of July 2016, and every adult I know is embracing 90s nostalgia – running around consulting their Pokédex with the aim of catchin’ them all.

But whether you’re laughing at it, or are a Pokémon master yourself, there is no denying that Pokémon Go (PG) is a big deal.  It took the viral game Angry Birds 35 days to reach an audience of 50 million, it took Pokémon Go less than seven days – and it hasn’t even been rolled out worldwide.

How and why did you get involved in PR?

Whilst studying economics and politics at university, I was always intrigued by the current affairs stories I read in print and online media. I knew I wanted a role that would challenge me and enable me to work with organisations that have a story to tell. After a big search for my first PR role, I was really excited to land a paid internship here at Stand Agency.

What attracted you to work at Stand Agency?

I researched the work that Stand does and I was drawn to their client list. It was full of organisations with great causes that were having a positive influence on society.

How and why did you get involved in PR?

The main aim when job-hunting after graduation was to get some experience in the charity sector. Second to that was to find a job that was fun, engaged in current affairs, and one that would keep me on my toes. As a result, I was lucky enough to bag a crazy and rewarding internship in the media team at Comic Relief. PR turned out to be everything I was looking for – sociable, topical, creative and the right balance of work and play. I haven’t looked back since!

‘Dos and don’ts’ from my first 30 days in PR

Posted by Millie Daly

I’m Millie and I started as an Account Executive at Stand Agency in April.

After graduating from the University of Leeds in June 2015, I moved back into my family home with the intention of plunging straight into a career in PR. However, being situated in the remote Wiltshire countryside, sandwiched between two farms and not much else, I was left with limited local options!

Meet Stand Agency’s… Miri Buac!

Posted by Beccy Churchill

Miri joined Stand Agency a few months back as an Account Executive, and we thought it was about time she introduced herself. Miri stands out for her creative eye and ability to see the bigger picture.

How and why did you get involved in PR?

My first role in PR was during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It was an exciting time for London, and being involved in this international event was so rewarding. I got a buzz for organising campaigns, and knew PR would be the right way to put my creative eye to good use!
