To begin with, colleagues are the culture and vice versa. It surely all starts with the senior management and how they interact with each other and those below them. It’s also got a lot to do with what being inspired by people around you who possess complimentary talents. The more I work with designers, for example, the more I’m amazed by what they do. It gives me a buzz to see someone do something I never could. I grew up being told to try and be good at everything (why did we have to learn Pythagoras’ theorem?) and not focusing on my strengths.

We are excited by the possibilities and challenges that digital media brings and passionate about using social media to complement ‘traditional’ PR.

For example, if you max out the ‘Fun’ bar, and minimize ‘Food’ and ‘King’, it makes it easier to see all the advertorial video content on the site. Continue reading
With the huge increase in the role of online in the media world, in particular social media, it’s easy to forget the importance of face-to-face networking. It’s great to ‘connect’ with people on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the like, but nothing beats having a drink and chewing the fat in person. Continue reading
The Virgin Atlantic and British Airways examples of employees misusing social networking sites (both on Facebook) have attracted widespread media coverage. While some corporates may now be considering baning the use of such sites, as Jason Ryan warns, this may be ultimately counterproductive:
