  • Abducted by aliens

    You’d think that in the overall scheme of things, the threat of abduction by aliens would be towards the lower end of a CEO’s concerns. But being prepared for the possibility is always at the back of my mind. Not because I’m an obsessive X-Files fan, or have been spotting flying saucers over my garden, but because being prepared for it helps to optimise the customer experience we provide, which builds businesses and keeps clients happy.

  • Navigating edu tech - why universities need to up their game

    My boss would probably prefer not to know this, but I was a bad student for most of my life. This was because I was very disengaged by the traditional, ‘teacher lectures and the student takes notes’ format. Fortunately for all concerned this changed when I attended university as it offered a more compelling learning environment.

  • PR analytics: don’t be a dinosaur!

    I recently attended an event discussing best practice in PR measurement and evaluation and, whilst most PR professionals will (I hope) be implementing these principles already, it gave me some valuable insight on measurement that’s fit for the future, and how some of the largest institutes in the UK implement their evaluation strategy.

  • Crisis and reputation - What can Facebook and Oxfam teach your business?

    With Facebook dealing with its biggest crisis to date and with the recent Oxfam crisis, the events of the past few weeks are a timely reminder of how quickly any organisation’s reputation can go downhill, perhaps forever, with massive financial and people consequences.

  • ‘Toxic masculinity’ and other opportunities

    At a Most Contagious event in London towards the end of last year, there was much talk about ‘toxic masculinity’ and the roles brands play in influencing attitudes to masculinity and gender. It’s an emotive topic, and one that some brands have latched on to in clever ways, turning contentious issues into opportunities.

  • What is 5G - and why is it so important?

    5G will be one of the most important enablers to the 4th Industrial Revolution - but it must be a "pull" model from these innovative business domains rather than a "push" model from the telecommunication industry. Good, clear and constistent communication and conversations will be vital.

    Offerings to gods have been a part of human history for as far back as you care to go. Brand offerings to consumers, not so much. But in recent years, as new technologies and shifting audience demands disrupt the standard pillars of industry, evolving and clarifying your offering to key markets has undoubtedly become more and more important.

  • What does Brexit mean for the media and entertainment sector?

    Much has been written regarding Brexit, and the impact this will have on some of our leading industries, including retail, farming, automotive and finance.

This is something I feel has received comparatively little public attention from politicians and press during the early stages of Brexit.

  • Three reasons transparency is vital: anger, villages and tomatoes
