We co-author a global report into creativity in PR with the Holmes Report – see this year’s study launch.
Claire ran an innovation panel at the International PR Conference ICCO in Oxford exploring innovation in the PR industry.
Claire was also asked to attempt a Guinness World Record on the main stage at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity for the world’s largest creative thinking lesson, alongside men’s health charity, Movember. Sadly the lure of rose proved too much and we were 15 short of the record, still nearly 225 people came to take part!
