Introducing “Social Business Future Gazing 2016”

Over the next few weeks we’ll be doing a little future gazing. We’ll be looking at how changes in the world of social media will impact the setup of large organisations in 2016. How will it impact on; the way they structure their people, the way they work with agencies, the way they produce content and the way they distribute it?

The articles are aimed at digital, brand and social media managers, and are based on our experience of sitting in the client’s seat, behind the agency desk, and now being independent of both.


Of course predicting anything in the sphere of social technology is challenging at the best of times, but if nothing else we’ll endeavour to make it an interesting accompaniment to your mid-morning coffee.
