This Thursday (March 8th) we’re launching a brand new podcast merging the world of true crime and classical music. You can read the full details here – the first one features the gruesome story of Haydn’s missing head which is just a flavour of what’s to come. So subscribe now and let us know what you think when it launches Thursday!
Last week we launched The Global Awards from London’s Eventim Apollo. It was an incredible night, featuring some great acts and moments from the blue carpet. We’ve posted the Global Awards video highlights here but you can watch the full version below. Needless to say we had a great response, not only during the public voting stage, but also whilst live streaming across social and onsite. Enjoy!
Earlier this year I was invited by Jonathan Kahn over at Together London to speak at his annual Agile Content Conference at Sadler’s Wells, London. This is a fantastic event looking at all aspects of agile content and it was a real pleasure to mix with content strategists working across a broad range of disciplines. You can watch all the presenters from the event here.
Yikes and holy cow. It’s been a while since I updated this blog but I wanted to let you know – I have the perfect alibi. You see, I’ve spent the last few months having a kind of mid-life crisis – only it’s been a very peculiar kind of crisis and probably a very British one at that. It doesn’t involve women, fast cars or huge quantities of fizzy-pop. No, dear reader, I stand here shamefully confessing that I have finally become addicted to… creative writing.
This week I was invited to speak at the annual Next Radio event in London – one of the UK’s biggest broadcast industry events. The conference was held at The Royal Institute which was a great choice of venue (especially as I’ve always been a Faraday fanboy) and a real honour to share our recent work in video.
Wow. What a week. Some very interesting results in the UK Election and now lots to debate as we discuss what’s next for Britain in the weeks ahead. Of course, we’ve been following the election extensively on LBC ever since Theresa May made her call for a vote back in April. Now that it’s over (although, you could argue the fun has only just begun!) I thought I’d highlight some aspects of our digital coverage you may be aware of.
