For me, this year – quite possibly. It is the month I return to Speed after a fantastic, scary, challenging and rewarding year on maternity leave. But having dug out my heels, navigated the nursery run and boarded the commuter train in from Surrey, I had a precious 27 uninterrupted minutes for some iPad newspaper […]
Today I read a great post by @tomforemski in response to Google’s updated webmaster rules on links and keywords which can be found here (this link is in no way intended to act as a naughty SEO tactic, it is merely there to give the reader of this post an easy way to identify with […]
In our day-to-day jobs we tend to focus on the big picture work we do. Whether it’s ingenious client consultation, quirky creative campaigns complete with skinny jeans and Ray Ban spectacles, or new business backslapping, we just love congratulating ourselves. Yet very rarely do we stop and applaud a bloody good forecasting spreadsheet or seamless […]
I am now entering the third week of my muscle hypertrophy phase, fifth week of my Maximuscle Protein Project . The last couple of weeks have been a little tougher as the excitement dwindles and the 5.40am starts become slower. Nevertheless I’ve kept going and feel much more confident in the gym, seeing great progress […]
Week three of my Maximuscle Protein Project and things are going really well.

My DOMS phase is decreasing as my body gets used to being worked, allowing me to train harder and, thankfully, […]
The start of any training regime can be daunting. A lot of people struggle with the notion of where to start – I know what I want to achieve, I know how long I want it to take but how am I going to get there? I have now completed two full weeks of my […]
Today we say farewell to Toby Bradshaw who has been interning with us for the last two months. It’s been great having him on our pod, whilst his dress sense is questionable, his energy and work ethic has been fantastic. Toby offered up some insights into why PR appeals to him, his experience with Speed […]
Following the success of the three Maximuscle Protein Project contestants, Oli, David and James, I have decided to take on my own Protein Project. Maximuscle are one of our clients and this was a PR campaign that I completely immersed myself in. I was involved from conception through to the ‘Wrap Party’ and I continue […]
The night before any event I get those butterflies in my stomach. No matter how much preparation time you allow beforehand you can never truly guarantee that little unforeseen circumstance won’t rear its ugly head! But earlier this week I helped run one of the most successful events of my career to date. Finding the […]
