Believe in Better: Insight and inspiration from industry leaders

Posted by Chloe RobertsTagged , , , , ,

Recently we spoke to Justine Lago, Director and Executive Coach at Onion HR. Justine has been involved in operational leadership management and development for the last 20 years, having worked in senior operational management positions, human resources and consulting.

In this episode we discuss what good leadership looks like during challenging times, and which attributes have helped organisations grow during this time. We also asked Justine what qualities leaders will need to have in the future, and as businesses respond to new lockdown measures – and many teams continue to work from home – how do companies build a supportive culture to ensure resilience and keep motivation up?

Watch this space for future episodes of Believe in Better with more inspiring thought leaders from our network.

What will life be like for working parents after Covid-19?

The new four part docuseries ‘Hillary’ airing on Sky this month, is a four-hour ramble through the career of one of the most famous women in the world, Hillary Clinton.

In episode two we revisited the intense fallout from Clinton’s flippant response to a question about the depth of her involvement in her husband’s first presidential campaign, in the early 90s. ‘I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was fulfil my profession’ she famously quipped.

Meet Stand Agency’s… Jessica Nazaire!

Posted by Olivia WilliamsTagged , , , ,

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?

Meet Stand Agency’s… Jade Kupoluyi!

Posted by Miri BuacTagged , , , , ,

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.
