Is your brand in the hands of your employee bloggers and twitterers?

May 25, 2012


The session on Social Media at the Reputation in Oil Gas & Mining conference opened with the observation made by one commentator recently that employees should spend an hour a day on each social media channel they are active on. As the speaker pointed out, if you are on LinkedIn, twitter, Facebook, instagram and pinterest […]

Collaboration’s what ya need!

June 21, 2011


If Roy Castle were still alive today then I’m sure he’d rewrite his famous song to reflect the word ‘Collaboration’ rather than dedication. Now, if you’re under 40 then it’s possible that you’ll have no idea what that reference is to – so google it. Or watch this! Anyhow, it seems to me collaboration is […]

Twitter ye not!

May 9, 2011


The twitter #superinjunction case has thrown up yet again the question of how much anyone or any company can keep anything secret for long.

Zuckerberg joins Stalin and Dubya

December 16, 2010


So Mr Facebook must be well pleased today. Not only is Glassdoor listing his company as the best place to work, but he is also Time’s Person of the Year. He’s joining a list that includes Stalin, Hitler, Walis Simpson and George W Bush – not exactly popular in their own right. So what is […]
