If I ruled the company…

If you haven’t already noticed I’m pretty opinionated. But, in my defence, which hard-nosed PR and marketing blogger isn’t?  We’re just a couple of weeks into 2017 and I’ve already caught myself using the phrase, ‘It’s not how I’d run my company’ – an easy statement to make when you’re not in charge of very […]

How Instagram is looking after users in mind, body and spirit

To be sung to the tune of Diddy’s anthem: The B. The U. The S. The Y, I’m busy. Work is all too easy to blame, but it’s not the only reason I’m feeling a little ‘arghhh’. Even planning shopping trips and holidays has become stressful thanks to the list of jobs they create. Working […]

Can I quote you on that? Part 3: Jessica Alba

It was only a few months ago that the media was hailing celebrity Jessica Alba as one of the best business brains in Hollywood for championing ethical brand Honest. But, after a string of allegations and negative comments against its sunscreen, it’s no surprise she’s getting burnt. Last week the Sin City actress issued a […]

Gü’s #GetSingle campaign has a technical melt down

Holidays, days out and dinners are fantastic experiences… unless it’s just for one person. In fact, the only thing I can get away with solo, without fear of being judged, are taxis.

Why United was right to throw a passenger off a plane

We all get a little over excited when we’re on holiday. And, thanks to social media, we’re able to spill this excitement onto our friends’ news feeds by checking in on Facebook at the airport or hashtagging #ComeFlyWithMe on Twitter from the time we leave the house to the moment we land at our destination. But, there’s an unwritten […]

Five geeky conversation starters to prove to the office you’re more than just a pretty face

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.“ No truer words were ever spoken than by Ferris Bueller (aka 80s heartthrob Matthew Broderick). Although he was talking about a day off school, it still applies to the jobs we do. While I was trying to […]

Madonna’s like a virgin when it comes to social media

Is the Queen of Pop, Madonna, trying to tell us that she’s ‘like a virgin’ when it comes to social media? Or perhaps her PR manager has taken a ‘holiday’? Whatever the reason, it seems she just can’t help diving into global issues to tell the world something important: buy her 13th studio album, #RebelHeart. […]

Halloween 2014 is sponsored by…

In a dark room in a chilling office, set among a black backdrop of skyscrapers gracing the city’s skyline, shone a single glimmer of light. John stayed silent as he moved the cursor around his overworked computer screen. The window had been left open to curb the stench of late-night pizza. The draft surrounded John […]

Let’s be Frank about Austravel’s PR stunt…

If you walked down to Liverpool Street station this week, you were in for a PR surprise. But, you had to look carefully. If you blinked, you’d miss it (probably). Frank PR teamed up with Austravel, a tour operator, to promote its holiday destinations by creating a hole in the ground to show consumers what […]
