...magical stories!


Once upon a time...

...earlier this week, I was involved in a storytelling/audio book project. It reminded me of one of life's simple pleasures - reading fairy tales to children who are still filled with the wonder of it all! Yet, as the great author Roald Dahl reminds us, you're never too old to believe!

And, what happens to those who do believe in magic?

Well, it's obvious....they all live happily ever after!

and liking how you do it."

...Ogilvy - The Changemakers


 

"In the 80s and the 90s we spent a lot of effort persuading people to spend two quid on a bottle of water that was indistinguishable from tap water. If we could apply that kind of ingenuity to sustainability issues, then perhaps people wouldn't see us as the enemy anymore".
- Adrian Zambardino, Planning Partner, Ogilvy

"Through marketing and communications, brands have the power to influence what we buy day in, day out. More importantly, brands have the power to influence our behaviours and what we think and what we feel about issues such as sustainability.... 

If I was looking back in 30 years time, I'd like to see brands that really campaigned for something, not just for people to buy their product, but really campaign for issues and really change the way society thinks, what it feels about sustainability and how it behaves in the way it uses products" 
- Stuart Smith CEO EAME, Ogilvy Public Relations

Hear more from the Ogilvy changemakers on their video Tomorrow's Company.  Also, as a side note, I loved this article in Forbes, 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Changemakers'.

...Ogilvy Earth & My Ecolabel Project






Nothing inspires me more than seeing the advertising, communications and PR industry using its immense power to help make brands better, so that together, we can make our world better. One of the most famous and successful agencies in the business, Ogilvy, has launched Ogilvy Earth, their global sustainability marketing consultancy. Check out some of the videos on the Ogilve Earth UK Youtube Channel including 'the kinder spring clean' a project I recently voiced for the European Commission's EU Ecolabel - see above! I just love an eco-project :)
