Stand Agency has appointed Salonee Gadgil, to the new role of Digital Content Director. Salonee, who previously worked as Content Manager at Creative Review magazine, will work with Stand’s diverse range of clients to expand their digital offering, reach new audiences and nurture communities, as well as build the agency’s content reputation in new sectors.
Stand Agency has been hired by the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG), to help them give grassroots sport a boost.
The campaign will highlight how important the ground under our feet is when it comes to increasing participation in sports like football, rugby and cricket. The three-year communications programme will demonstrate the vital role that groundstaff play in keeping turf in top condition, raising the profile of the sector at the same time.
Stand Agency has been appointed by the Engineering Development Trust. EDT is a charity that works to enhance experiences for young people within STE(A)M (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) through the Industrial Cadets programme. By working with education, employers and partners, Industrial Cadets creates a talent pipeline and a future skilled workforce, whilst helping young people to develop the skills they need to enter industry with confidence.
Whether it’s protecting the planet or challenges to social mobility for young people, music has always been a great platform for highlighting issues people care about. We saw examples of this on the main stage at Glastonbury this year, with appearances from Sir David Attenborough and Stormzy.
During Stormzy’s performance, as the first British black male solo artist to headline Glastonbury, he played a speech by Labour MP David Lammy deploring the challenges that face black, Asian and minority people in the UK.

Not for a long time (ever?) has there been a better time to get traction behind a campaign tackling climate change. The recent hype has led to a renewed interest in the topic and a building sense of urgency. The environment is officially trending.
I was recently a guest on the PRCA Podcast, aptly named PRcast and hosted by the very lovely Isobel Arrowsmith and Harry Gardiner.
“Cash only”. It’s a sign I’ve seen plenty of times, and it’s been met with frustration. Finding actual cash in my purse these days is becoming more and more of a rarity.
When the fate of 1 and 2p coins was momentarily thrown into doubt the other week, I felt certain that we were on our way to a cashless society. The news came alongside an announcement that a branch of Sainsburys in London had taken the decision to remove all tills in its refurb (80% of transactions in their store were now cashless), free ATMs were reported to be in decline and RBS became the first to offer card payment by fingerprint.
The revenue generated through social media advertising spend in the UK is expected to grow by 12% a year. No surprise given the past 10 years development; both in the platforms themselves and how people use them.
