  • Making the unconscious conscious

    In my last blog I touched on the opportunistic strategy of colliding activism and behavioural change marketing to help create an environment of change. It got me thinking about the role of advertising and public relations and how they contribute to what we define as society’s ‘norms and values’. I became fascinated with this concept when I was studying Illustration at university - in fact it was the main reason I decided to go into the field of marketing and public relations.

  • Pensions, Employment and Divorce - Achieving-Equality

    As Family Law partner, Justine Flack observes, many people may feel that pensions are not the most exciting topic to read about. However, there is a lot that has happened in recent years in this area - auto enrolment, pension freedoms and raising the state pension age for women - which makes them a relevant topic. They are also important when it comes to divorce as they frequently represent one of the most valuable assets along with the matrimonial home.

  • September IoT News: Bottom-line RoI | ARM Nvidia | pregnancy test Doom

    As IoT moves beyond a fascination with whizzy new technology ("Can we do it?", "How do we do it?"), everyone is starting to evaluate their hard, financial return-on-investment ("How do we do it profitably?). We're seeing this happen throughout the supply-chain, from device vendors, communications providers, cloud services … and of course in Service Monitoring, too. After more than three years of commercial experience helping customers to successfully scale and become profitable (and a lot of years before that doing it ourselves at previous companies), we've now gathered enough examples to be able to quantify seven different ways in which Service Monitoring typically drives revenue up and costs down, whilst enabling growth – to deliver a great return-on-investment (RoI).
