They have been touted for their ability to boost collaboration, but new research suggests that open office spaces might actually be harmful to your productivity.

I caught with Ed Balls MP moments after he finished #VMLM2014 yesterday. Ed beat his 5 hour target and has raised over £154k in 3 years for +Whizz-Kidz z & Action for Stammering Children. #LondonMarathon

Great piece on Stuart Hall in Dazed & Confused magazine. RIP the UK intellectual, multicultural theorist and co-founder of my Uni department (CCCS), Stuart Hall.

If we agree press releases aren't quite dead, here are some decent ways to get some warm blood into them.

We won't know the exact total for a little while, but we can say that our amazing London Marathon team have raised over £1 million for Whizz-Kidz!

We are still buzzing from yesterday and we hope you are too!

Love this, it is possible to re-engage and inspire employees on the wane. And I know +Whizz-Kidz and many other charities would welcome corporate employees volunteering at our projects or HQ to reignite their sense of social belonging and develop their passions.

Yikes, bad customer stewardship last night at new über-trendy Chicken Shop in Tooting. First waiter awful & rude, colleague took over & criticised first guy relentlessly & appropriately. Then announced he had just quit because of the politics of the place. Keep this stuff away from customers!
