The Great British Bake Off and their ‘showstopper’ PR

Be it a blessing or a curse, when you work in PR, nothing seems so innocent any more. Theresa May does a dance? Intentional. Magazine depicts a plus-sized model on their front cover? A prime example of CSR. The GBBO release a heartfelt tweet on the day of the final? 10000% PUBLIC RELATIONS.  Maybe that… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off and their ‘showstopper’ PR

Your voices count. Really, they do!

How can you make a change if you're just one person, right? That's what I always used to believe until I came across this quote (back in the good ol' 2013 Tumblr days). Be the change you want to see in the world And ever since then, it really did begin to change my outlook… Continue reading Your voices count. Really, they do!

When was the last time you heard Brexit being widely spoken about? Probably before the Conservative party conference right? If you're nodding your head right now in agreement, you should know this is no coincidence at all.

How I’d play it if I was on The Apprentice

The Apprentice starts on the 3rd October and, though I've not typically religiously watched it in the past, I'm excited to delve into it.

It's… Continue reading How I’d play it if I was on The Apprentice

Answering the difficult questions: Nike’s latest ad – bold or poor?

Nobody ever moved forward by standing still, and similarly, nobody ever made noise by remaining quiet. In order to move mountains, you need to have the courage to push. And in fear of sounding a bit like a motivationalist, I'm going to say things in simpler terms. I think that Nike's 'Just Do It' ad… Continue reading Answering the difficult questions: Nike’s latest ad – bold or poor?

Everybody is a genius

I did great in my GCSEs, but my A-Levels? Not so much. And for a long time I let myself believe that my grades were vindictive of my intelligence and my abilities.

Scanning homeless people – has the world gone completely mad?

I couldn't not talk about this. It caught my eye in the news this week that a scheme in Oxford called Greater Change is trialling 'homeless QR codes in London'. It works by giving a homeless person a barcode which they should wear around their necks on a lanyard. Then, the 'ever-so-busy' passer by can… Continue reading Scanning homeless people – has the world gone completely mad?

So, what’s it really like writing a dissertation?

It seems like an age ago now since I was a third year student. (It was actually no longer than 3 months ago, but that's what working full time does to you!) Nevertheless, I can't seem to escape discussions surrounding dissertations and final year even now.
