In its annual predictions reports CCS Insights predicted the rise of wearables in 2016. So, what better excuse than to catch up with the company's wearables analyst +George Jijiashvili  to find out what's hot and whether I should be forking out for some wearable sports clothing.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Phil Szomszor. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Have you got Monday morning blues? Or maybe you manage a demotivated workforce or want to know how to get more out of your teams? Listen to this week's Ted Radio Hour on The Meaning of Work. The Bionicle experiment in particular is worth hanging on for. #BehaviouralEconomics

Why PR people should looking beyond consumer surveys and mine companies' data to create media-friendly stories. Includes examples of two companies that do just that very well. #PublicRelations   #PRTips

Have you tried Crystal Knows yet? Firefly's +Charlotte Stoel gives an overview of the service, which profiles people's communications preferences and working style. A few of the ones I tried were a bit like horoscopes (ie generic enough to apply to everyone), but enough were uncannily accurate to warrant taking a closer look. http://bit.ly/1Kr5Cc7

Inspired by a great episode of +TED Radio Hour, here's my thoughts on Dan Ariely's segment about how employees' motivation can be affected by how they're treated.

Well worth reading for marketers and PR peeps. Always thought people share a lot of stuff, just to make themselves look good.

Story

Digital marketing communications consultant
Introduction

I am Digital Engagement Director at Harvard, an integrated communications agency specialising in technology businesses. Winning seven awards last year and already shortlisted for two Agency of The Year Awards in 2015, Harvard now works with some of the most exciting brand in B2B and B2C worlds each using technology to effect change. 

I’ve been working in PR and digital communications since graduating with a marketing degree in 1997. In that time I’ve worked with dozens of start-ups, fast track businesses and household brand names, combining media relations with social media and other marketing communications activities.


In my spare time I’m a blogger, podcaster and public speaker, so whether you’re on the look out for a new PR agency or some views about the industry, please get in touch.
