  • TechMunch: Gather round the fire kids – Big Data is going to tell a story

    April 12, 2019

    It’s ‘the new oil’; It’s ‘power’; It’s ‘beautiful’; It’s ‘the new currency.’ It’s data.

  • The fads, the fear, the future – what can we expect from tech in 2019?

    December 18, 2018

Simply put, as tech continues to evolve, the way people talk, think and feel about it evolves as well. To better understand this evolution – and how brands should respond and plan for it – FleishmanHillard analyzed more than one...

    July 18, 2018

    The beginning of the end of life as we know it, or an unheralded force for good? The AI debate frequently swings across both extremes. One thing’s for sure. It’s a topic that’s impacting all of our clients, across all industries and sectors, in all markets and in all organisations, whatever their size or scale. So which side of the argument is right?

  • TechMunch: What the 2018 World Cup can teach tech companies about storytelling

    July 5, 2018

    I have a confession to make. I hate football. And I particularly loathe tournaments like the World Cup because of the amount of football that’s on TV every single day. So why am I taking the time to write a blog post about the beautiful game? Well, England’s penalty shoot-out victory against Colombia on Tuesday night suddenly had me on the edge of my seat. I found myself shouting at the TV, urging Harry Kane...
