    Don’t underestimate your granny when it comes to Google

    These days, with the pace at which technology is outdoing itself, it’s virtually impossible to hold your high ground as ‘king of the hill’. As soon as we flash the latest iPhone, a new one is flaunting its 12 MP camera with ƒ/1.8 aperture at us.

    Not ticking anyone off? Then you just aren’t trying hard enough!

    When was the last time you really offended someone at work? If you are a leader and your answer was ‘never’, you may want to rethink your job title. After all, American statesman and retired four-star general in the US Army Colin Powell had a point when he said, “being responsible sometimes means pissing people off.”

It’s never too late to NOT grow up

Category: October 2017 - Programmatic & Native Advertising

Ever since our drawings of stick figures were hung up on the fridge at home, we’ve been telling the world what we want to be when we grow up. Even our dress-up toys (the little plastic stethoscope for a birthday present; fireman’s hat; the police badge) subtly beg the question: “What will you be when you grow up?” Yet, considering that many children at primary school today will end up in jobs that don’t even exist yet, the idea of ‘what I want to be when I grow up’ is more confusing than ever before.
