Helping Ireland lead the way in new qualification for Creativity in PR and Comms


I am really delighted to be working in partnership with the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII) to launch a new professional qualification in ‘Creativity’ for the communications industry – believed to be a world first – enabling professionals to achieve a competitive advantage in their work.

The course is designed to provide both the strategic and tactical skills to achieve better results in offline and online communications and improve delegates’ management of the creative dimension at work.

Delivered through four linked weekend courses, with assessment based on producing a campaign case study, successful delegates will receive a Certificate in ‘Creativity and Creativity Management in PR and Comms’. Read more

Today’s a day for remembering a true British hero – Bertie the ventriloquist doll who landed on ‘D Day’


Only the British army would take a ventriloquist’s dummy on the D-Day landings in 1944.

Yes, it’s true. A British Army Captain, took ‘Bertie’, a ventriloquist doll, Bertie, onto the beaches of Normandy in the first few days of invasion.

Bertie’s resplendent army uniform proudly included a number of campaign medals.

Just imagine if he had got captured. Imagine the Gestapo trying to interrogate him, to get him to talk!

All of us should now have a new creative hero. Capt.E.H.‘Ted’ North – the man who had a hand in Bertie.

Maybe, it could be an idea for the future BREXIT negotiations, with our leader and dummy at hand. Some may say this is already the case. Read more
