  • Lessons from Jacinda Ardern – a strong voice and vision in action

    I’ve been lucky enough to live in New Zealand, and I’ve followed and admired Jacinda Ardern since she became Prime Minister there in late 2017. Even before the tragic Christchurch shootings I admired her work, her words and her evident humanity. She continues to represent the best political example I’ve seen of a strong vision and values in action, and there are lessons here I think for any leader.

  • The real power of a purpose

    Recently we have needed to access many different parts of the NHS and every member of staff we came across was so incredibly dedicated and helpful. To me they are actually an awe-inspiring example of the power of a purpose, but I feel the brand itself is let down by the lack of a vision and by a lack of joined-up service, testing the loyalty of staff and users alike. So what can the rest of us learn?

  • Lessons from a humble bike shop

    I’m lucky to live in a cycling city, with one of the country’s highest bike-shop counts per head. The independents often barely squeak by, and all bike retailers are impacted by online competition. A traditional industry that’s older than the car trade (brands like Peugeot made bikes before cars), it appears few bike shops have adapted profitably to hybrid models. And yet a few are doing OK, even thriving – and their unconventional thinking may have timeless lessons for all of us including in B2B.

  • Have courage – avoid being overwhelmed by sticking with the right kind of data

    Now, more than ever, it’s critical to focus and simplify the challenges that we face to deliver communications with real impact. As senior marketers we have a lot to think about, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed as the range of skills needed grows, new channels emerge every month and decisions can become more complex… but fortunately I think marketing can save itself by sticking with the fundamentals and the right kinds of data, and recent reading shows I’m not alone.

At the same time Britons overestimate women’s representation in business leadership – we think that 12 per cent of CEOs in the largest 500 companies around the world are women when it is actually just 3 per cent and we believe that equal pay will be achieved in 2035 when it has been estimated to take 82 years longer (2117).

    The longest relationship in your life is with your siblings – luckily my brother and I are quite close. There aren’t many other relationships that last decades, especially with a brand: but one that does is with your university.

And yet in the view of our student panel, a lot of the tertiary sector is missing basic marketing opportunities, especially at the vital first hurdle.

This is where the power of influencers can be key for building and growing brand trust.
