Phew what a scorcher! The never-ending heatwave is definitely making everyone happier than normal, especially for workers who normally suffer great weather during the working week which then takes the inevitable turn for the worse at the weekend. What’s also guaranteed to generate a fantastic feelgood factor is some positive PR. So, while others are [...]

Don’t panic

Harry Kane’s late, late winner against Tunisia showed us not to panic and to have faith in Gareth Southgate’s team. In fairness, England deserved the win, having the lion’s share of possession and most shots at goal. While a draw wouldn’t have been disastrous, the win definitely helps take the pressure off going in to [...]

My beloved Brighton & Hove Albion secured their Premier League survival with two games left to spare a couple of weeks ago. No mean feat given it’s their first year in arguably the toughest, and most popular, football league in the world, which also saw a couple of Premier League stalwarts, including West Bromwich Albion, [...]

Staying the distance

The recent news that Arsene Wenger is leaving Arsenal at the end of the season is a timely reminder that in a fast-moving world it’s increasingly rare for things to remain constant, especially for a considerable length of time as 22 years. Whether it’s buying a new car, swapping a mobile to the latest model, [...]

Attention span of a goldfish, if only!

According to some sources the human attention span is shorter than that of a goldfish with the average person managing a mere 6.8 seconds compared to our aquatic friend at 9 seconds. With such little time available, every nanosecond counts in grabbing the attention of your audience, whether it’s visitors to a website, writing a [...]

12 years and ticking

Government ministers have just been warned that they have only 12 years to make sure that three-fifths of new cars are electric in order to meet greenhouse gas targets. The caution from the Committee on Climate Change gives those in charge approximately 5,000 days to do the seemingly impossible, given that currently fewer than 5 [...]

It’s panto season – Chris Grayling is Tory Party Chairman. Oh no he’s not! You would imagine that the Conservative party machine has one of the slickest social media teams at its disposal. But even the party’s official Twitter account is prone to the odd gaffe, as when it accidently announced that the Grayling had [...]

Another year has passed and once again it has flown by. While this means we’ve been busy (which is how we like it), it also means we’ve been having fun, which we hope comes across in our work and how we deal with our valued clients. And now it won’t be long before we sit [...]
