  How times have changed. It’s hard to believe that you could once hold a conversation without the word hashtag ever being mentioned, in fact many people would probably have questioned what the little symbol was for until Twitter came along and it became a global phenomenon overnight. Most celebrities crave for the stardom the… read more.

  Looks like a young entrepreneur will be laughing all the way to the bank thanks to Yahoo who has reportedly bought his app for an undisclosed sum – said to be around a cool 30 million dollars. What makes this story a little different, other than the fact the businessman in question is only… read more.

It’s been a couple of weeks since I stepped off the train at Wakefield Westgate following a three day dance exhibition in London and I have to say that just like last year I’m still wishing that there really was a dancer in me! For the last few years we have supported MAOAM at Move… read more.

Recently I was supporting a client with a store launch in Reading. As the journey was around 4 hours it gave me chance to think – which isn’t always a good thing! Although I don’t like jumping on band wagons I have to admit that the roads were in a pretty appalling state with pot… read more.
