Interesting Ad Push!

This idea might fall into the, “isn’t there anything sacred category” but I suspect there is a lot more going on when we talk ads on school exams. Check out the article. Maybe this is a way to pass on social messages or to push on campus activities? In the US it is actually being […]

Learning Idea #23.

I am just tossing this out there. There is a group of Moms, and a token Dad or 2, that have put their lives on hold as their children start  formal education. How are the lives of these parents on hold? There is a pick up and drop off and in the middle a lot […]

Innovation Where?

Zimbabwe the crisis We talk about innovation, leadership, ideas and we then talk some more. But when the chips are down you like me have to admit that we have really failed! YES I am suggesting that we have failed to innovate. Failed to lead. Failed to work as a team. And the reason I […]

Missed Advantage?

I am fortunate to be working with a group who are trying to re-design public policy as it relates to urban planning in Dubai. WOW, it is cool. But the group seems to be very much fixated on getting public opinion via small focus groups. What is the problem? I wonder if the money and […]

Career Conundrum.

As a collective body we are teaching these students the skills and I hope the thought process necessary to enter the field of communication. Are we way of track?
