  • Your 2020 essentials – trust and truth

    Our hectic, 24-hour lifestyles have inevitably led to an increase in the number of stories required to keep up with our constantly ‘switched on’ demands, and unfortunately fewer people to produce those stories. This has unsurprisingly resulted in ‘less than accurate’ content being shared across different platforms. Add ‘fake news’ to the mix, and a multitude of channels to communicate across, and there was always going to be a consequence: a complete lack of trust and the rise of ‘mis and disinformation’.

  • The impact of the MDR and IVDR on the product life cycle.

    As we approach the date of application of the MDR next year, medical device manufacturers are focused on ensuring that they get their CE certificates updated and they are able to continue to sell devices into the EU, but the journey isn’t going to stop there. However, the changes in the new regulations are not just about conformity of the product now, and manufacturers need to be thinking beyond simply completing their transition from MDD to MDR.

  • Managing your brand in a ‘fake news’ world

    ‘Fake news’ isn’t even news any more. Donald Trump is right in one way: as online ‘news’ sites proliferate daily, and the regulations lag behind the times, fake news is a reality. So, it’s important to think about which news sites you can trust and what to do if you suspect a ‘fact’ isn’t true. And since, in the fight for attention, news and advertising are inextricably linked (finding news is a big reason your target audience picks up their phone and sees your brand) we all have responsibilities as we market a brand
