Inspired Us – July 2018

Canopy Insight list what's inspired them this month, from 12-foot noodles to new film Sorry to Bother You. Lunar Eclipse (event) It was cloudy in most of the UK on the night of July 27th during the total lunar eclipse. But the knowledge that people throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and South America were all pointing their faces (and cameras) at the same moon made us feel part of something huge.

Age: a prickly subject

The Age Fishbowl Age. A prickly, awkward subject, especially for anyone working in the very youth-led marketing and advertising industries. I was 31 when I started working as an advertising creative and I hid my age for years. But recently I realised that lying about my age was not good for me or for the industry. How can we value and utilise older employees if we don’t know they’re there? So, I ‘came out’ and fessed up to being over 50 with an article in Campaign. As a result, I was invited to participate in The Marketing Society’s fishbowl discussion about age. The event took place in the sumptuous Century club. A club with a number. And this is all about numbers. From the tiny 5% of people in our industry who are still there at 50 plus. To the huge number of people leaving their date of birth off their CV’s just to get an interview.

Old people not dinosaurs

How do you write a review for an session where more than 20 people shared their views, at breakneck speed, and all conducted under ‘Chatham House Rules’? With difficulty it would seem. So rather than write a ‘review’, I thought I’d share a 4 thoughts and questions that the session prompted in my mind. So here goes:

No more standing by

Let’s talk about bravery. Not mountain climbing. Not parachuting out of a plane. Not bungee jumping, abseiling, marathon running or ironman training. All of which are admirable.
