Talking to a brick wall: how to make politicians listen?

talking to a brick wall

Tweet It took me a long time to warm to advertising agencies. The first time I worked with one I was working in sales management on Fairy Washing Up Liquid. I was due to attend a meeting at which I was to be told what consumers really thought of the brand. I remember my reluctance […] more »

What Ireland did right (and what it needs to do)…

What we did right

It referred to the Government commitment of €10 million to deal with the devastating floods that destroyed large parts of Ireland. Why so little? The deserts and sky rise cities of Dubai have literally nothing in […] more »
