Variety is the spice of life – DG COMM
One of the benefits of working in a communications agency is the variety of topics that we get to cover.

Getting personal with sustainability – SDGS 2030 IS NOW
We’ve all done it – promised to do something to reduce the impact of our lives on the environment and allow us to live more sustainably.

The time for action is now!

Perhaps the changes you have seen have been smaller – migratory birds have been appearing in your garden later than expected, or there are fewer fish biting in your favourite trout stream. The impacts of climate change are all around us, and they are only going to become increasingly extreme.
Bridging the digital divide – CODE WEEK
The first fax I sent, I sent 10 times. I had to – it wouldn’t go. It kept returning from the bottom of the fax machine. It took an irate phone call from the recipient to curb my enthusiasm. New technologies challenge us, but they also allow us to connect. In the digital age this is truer than ever. Digital competencies have become an indispensable part of everyday life, and 90% of jobs require digital skills.
Making medical devices safe – MEDICAL DEVICES
We will all need to use medical devices at some point in our lives – if we don’t already use them. The term ‘medical device’ is broader than you might think – covering everything from a contact lens to a pacemaker and the software that monitors its performance. We expect that these devices will be of high quality and will perform their intended service. However this does not just happen – legislation is needed to ensure the safety of the medical devices we use.
