The Great Debate: Part 2

Continuing from my report on the Byron Sharp/Mark Riston debate at the Festival of Marketing, which you can find here.

 

Sharp and Ritson may have successfully publicised their ongoing feud with the debate, but the question that wasn't settled is: who is right?

4 reasons to intern at 2CV, according to two alums

As the newest set of graduates from 2CV's internship programme, we were a bit stuck about how to put our experiences to paper. We'd both read the  'day in the life of a 2CV intern' before applying and it captures a typical day very well. So for something different, we thought we'd take some inspiration from BuzzFeed and put together a listicle of our reasons why this internship is for you. Intrigued? Read on…

Beyond Face Value: Why Faces Matter

We are all guilty of this. Our friend comes back from a first date and our first impulse is to ask, "Show me a picture!"

 

No matter how much our friend tells us about their date's charity work and their adorable pet poodle, we feel that, until we have seen their face, we do not really have valuable insight into their character.

The Over-65’s: Sex, Social Media and Start-ups

Imagine someone 65 years and over in your head? Do you have an instant image of a cuddly grandma baking in the kitchen, or a pottering grandpa at home in the greenhouse  or is it more along the lines of someone wistfully looking back and wishing they could relive their youth?

 

While this image can still be true, 'old' people are starting to change, challenge, and re-define, society's stereotype of what it means to be 65 +. Rather than 'ageing' being a dirty word, over 65's are embracing their 'pre-retirement' using their time, energy and money to sexually experiment, become social media celebs, and forge new careers.
