December 3rd was named the annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities in 1992 by the United Nations as a day dedicated to promoting understanding of disabilities and to drive support for the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It is a day that aspires to increase the awareness of how valuable the assimilation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of life –  politically, socially, economically and culturally – is. 

In honor of International Day of Persons with Disabilities today, we asked Dr.

If industry events are anything to go by when defining the future of cyber security, it’s a sobering experience attending them today. The cyber security event scene is as buoyant as ever: the market is expected to grow in value to $345bn by 2026.

As a consequence, it has big implications for comms professionals whose job it is not only to adapt to new trends but to also anticipate and lead new strategies. In an industry that is moving at breakneck speed and where the adversary increasingly has the upper hand, it’s time to reflect about how we bring attention to the issues that matter now, what happens in the near future and the next big thing that we need to start preparing for.

We are thrilled to announce Thomas Cordes as our managing director of the Benelux region. He will be based in Amsterdam, an outstanding addition to Clarity’s European leadership team. 

Thomas has years of excellent corporate experience with some of the top international agencies and technology companies in the world. He began his career as a journalist and went on to lead content marketing at LVB Networks. He moved on to leadership positions at Winkelman Van Hessen, then Omnicom/Porter Novelli and most recently, Edelman. 

The sale last week of our client, Moonbug Entertainment, to a Blackstone-backed media company, is another significant indicator of the way the entertainment industry is changing, and why the LA publicity establishment is largely ill-equipped to deal with it.  

Moonbug is nothing short of a phenomenon. If you don’t know the company, the chances are that you are aware of its children’s entertainment properties, including CoComelon and Blippi. What is most extraordinary about these two properties in particular is that neither has ever been broadcast on linear TV in the United States.

Autumn is undoubtedly the dark horse of the seasons – the reminiscent charm of Halloween and cozy nights are silver linings of colder conditions, as we’re swiftly pulled away from summer.

Now in the deep end of ‘Spooky Season’, your fears are likely to have moved away from ghosts in the night, instead maybe onto the prospect of a new job, career or the future.

As the debt-ravaged contestants of Squid Game have been shoved into our eyeline over the previous few months, they served up a following dose of what Black Mirror had previously given us – a gloomy glimpse into the future.

Bringing together some of the brightest SEO brains across the UK, BrightonSEO is a staple event for the industry taking place twice a year. So, it’s no surprise that we ventured down to the event last month to hear from the huge range of speakers.

It’s in October that you begin to feel the change in seasons. It’s now when we think through our summer to winter closet swap strategy. I hate to see summer go and you can bet I’ll be wearing my sandals until the snow flies! 

In autumn our thoughts turn to pumpkin spice lattes, Hallowe’en and the coming of winter. Autumn heralds the darkest part of the year. It’s also in October when you may begin to feel the effects of seasonal change.

The call for more diversity, the fight against inequality, it is not new. What we do see is that the debate is becoming more frequent and intense. In other words, more and more people want a more diverse and inclusive society. What do we see of this in the business world? Does it reflect these changes, or are there still steps to be taken? In honor of Netherlands Diversity Day, our Amsterdam team spoke with our clients around this topic to get their insights.

The climate news is a bit depressing of late, isn’t it?

On the back of several high profile natural disasters – from record breaking temperatures and forest fires across North America and Europe this summer, to flooding in New York City and an earthquake in Haiti – it seems that there is no end to alarming news about the state of the planet and the necessity for us all to do our bit to help slow down global warming and prevent a climate catastrophe. 

Agency types are forever in a scramble to ‘differentiate’. In our eyes, there’s no cookie cutter, and our uniqueness is easily quantifiable & plain to see.

However, I often think Agencies are like goths or EMOs – all individually different from the surrounding pack, yet share common themes that reflect a genre. Of course, the truth is, that to everyone outside agencyland, we all look the same! PR, marketing, digital, content, measurement, performance, advertising, media…all nuanced bands of rockstars that clients would love to see playing in harmony!…
