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

I've been thinking a lot lately about YouTubers and how many apology videos I see on my timeline day in and day out.

This year I'm devoted to watching it every night as I feel like I can learn a lot from it, oh and not to mention it's right up my street.

Was Kanye right? Has life become a numbers game?

Kanye West - ever famous for being somewhat outspoken and never shy - has recently sparked up yet another conversation. This time, it's with the question: what would happen if our lives weren't so defined by numbers? In a world that's becoming slightly Black Mirror-esque, social popularity is becoming more and more important. So much to the point that not only has social media become a big part of our lifestyle, but also in our careers. Which i'm not saying is a bad thing by the way, part of my job includes social media management - and I love being able to use platforms to make a difference. The way that it should be used.

Pardon the in-bad-taste pun in the title, and try not to let it distract you from the matter in hand. Whether you're a K.W. fan or not, you'd still have to be kinda' a hermit to have let his recent Twitter activity slip your eye. Ahead of his latest product launch, Kanye has took to… Continue reading A MAGA Bad Idea?

Who Needs Social Media, eh?

So you've probably heard about Wetherspoons and their oh-so-bold move of deleting all social media this week. The popular pub chain resides in my heart, I mean, i'll always have a soft spot for Spoons and I personally can completely back their decision to 'ghost' all forms of social media. Wetherspoons dropped the 'bombshell' literally… Continue reading Who Needs Social Media, eh?
