How to break the Internet

Abbey Jones MarComms, Original Thinking Leave a Comment

As part of the #HKCannes people’s choice challenge, someone asked a question on using the ‘Breaking the Internet’ seminar as a window to attending her own break the Internet party, in which she would wear an outfit that would do just that. Obviously a break the internet party is already a crowded space that will inspire much social noise. While …

Last night in Hong Kong, at the PR Week Asia Awards 2015, Hill+Knowlton Strategies Australia scooped the pool, taking out a staggering six awards, including the coveted Campaign of the Year for its highly successful I Touch Myself project which promotes breast cancer awareness through self-examination. We say “staggering”, only because H+K’s Head of Corporate Michelle Curley (pictured) was on …

I’m back! And I’m more middle than ever. No, I have no idea what that means either. For all those wondering, I had a great time in the UK. It was a pretty busy time but great to catch up with all my friends and family. My best mate’s wedding was the absolute highlight – a spectacular day. This week …

GOOGLEISM – how Google should be breaking the digital “glass ceiling”

Jas Jabbour Digital, Managing an Agency, Original Thinking, Random Leave a Comment

It was recently brought to my attention that when you Google the term “CEO” and click on Google Images, the results are somewhat of a shock.   I consider myself a feminist. Not the extreme type that’s so often negatively perceived, but the technical type that stands for gender equality and bridging the gap between males and females. It’s with …

THE MIDDLEMAN: Burning the midnight oil

Ciaran Pillay Crisis+Issues, Managing an Agency, Random, Working at H+K Leave a Comment

Working late is trivial thing in PR, isn’t it? It’s not like some industries where working late is a given as it’s part of the culture or other industries where working late equals extra cash. I say this as I sit at home and work relatively late into the evening. Now, I’m not talking about the exceptional circumstances where you …
