I've been doing a little thinking around what I want to base 2017 around and a word at haven't been able to shake, and so am embracing fully is: Reconnect. This year, I turn 39, which is a little scary and I've packed an awful lot of great things into the first half of my … Continue reading My word of 2017 – Reconnect
The last few weeks has definitely been "one of those weeks” - all of them. Am sure we all know what they can look like. Nothing dramatic, but as ever in the corporate space, change is ever present. Indeed, as the firm used to say, "change happens". (I still think it's a great brand slogan...) … Continue reading Resilience – nature or nurture?
Sometimes I don't want to watch the news. Tonight is one of those nights. I hope anyone who criticises any MP in the future remembers Jo Cox. Whether we like them or loathe them, they stand up for what they believe, and dedicate themselves to public service. It's sad when anyone dies, especially when they … Continue reading In thanks of public service
Things are nuts at the moment. Sound familiar? Can't believe we're already over 1/6 of the way into the year. But what a start to 2016. I feel like I've been making great strides with my mission to give permission to our colleagues to operate in the social space. I've done presentations and chats with … Continue reading Versatility rocks!
This weekend, I’ve had a sort of epiphany. It is January after all, so no better time! I read a piece on Friday night about social media and PR metrics in 2016 by the guru of all things both, Stephen Waddington. Regardless of whether you read on from here, you really should read the post! … Continue reading Metrics, goals and a January epiphany
Given we're still near the start of Blogtober, Ive been thinking about the sorts of things I could/should blog about this month. I saw an infographic and blogpost a while back on Social Media Examiner giving some tips on blog post ideas and thought it’d be a good one to repost in summary. The sorts … Continue reading Blog ideas – ideal for Blogtober
This month is Blogtober, when people across the interweb try to enhance their blogging and celebrate all that is great across the blogosphere. I'm going to try and give my own blogging a boost during the month. I managed to do the VEDA challenge pretty successfully so now it's down to the written form (although … Continue reading Mixing business with pleasure. #Blogtober day 1
Back in August, you may have seen me posting about a Video Every Day in August challenge I was undertaking courtesy of Amy Schmittauer. Why? Because I like to try new things out and from a social media perspective, I can see the value in video in raising my own profile, but also how we … Continue reading VEDA 2015 – What did I learn?
I often hear about how we shouldn’t be afraid to try something new and do it without fear of failure. It's fine to test something and figure it's not for you. I’ve been following the content put out by Amy Schmittauer after I heard her on a podcast a few months ago. She’s a really … Continue reading Trying something new!
Back in September I wrote this blogpost setting out that I was determined not to have three years of failed CPD on my CIPR homepage. That in itself wasn’t the main reason I did it (although, to be honest it was a good driver). The main reasons were to really put some time into me - it’s … Continue reading Go me! One year down, one more to go!
