Veuve Clicquot Polo Gold Cup 2012

Veuve Clicquot even managed to arrange for the sun to shine in Sussex for the final of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Gold Cup on the Cowdray estate at the end of July.

Framed by the magnificent Cowdray ruins, guests arrived in chauffer driven BMW’s and entered the VIP area via a ride on a Victorian Carousel before being presented with a glass of Veuve Clicquot’s finest champagne.

We loved making this celebration video of a fabulous day at the Polo.

Thanks Veuve Clicquot!

and the Winner is….Anya Hindmarch at the 2012 Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Awards

Congratulations to Anya Hindmarch who has just won The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award 2012. The British designer of highly-covetable accessories beat finalists Helena Morrissey of Newton Investment Management and Ruth Rogers, founder and chef, of the hugely successful River Café in London.

‘It is the greatest honour to win the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman award in its 40th year,’ Anya says of the win. ‘It is a very real compliment to be deemed to share some of the qualities of Veuve Clicquot herself who was clearly a brave and pioneering woman but also to even be considered amongst my fellow finalists, Helena Morrissey and Ruthie Rogers who are both brilliant businesswomen and lovely people”

We were proud to be asked to create short films profiling each of the 3 finalists which offer a little insight into the individual qualities that made all 3 potential winners of TheVeuve Clicquot Business Woman Award

We also enjoyed sampling the delights of the fabulous Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2004 Vintage Champagne at the thoroughly glitzy awards ceremony presented by Laura Kuenssberg at Claridges ballroom.

Hurrah! it is the year of the Olympics, but how will we keep our camera crews moving?

Well we are finally in the year of The Olympics.

I wonder what it is really going to be like working here in London during the “greatest show on earth”? If the worst of the fearmongers are to be believed, you wont be able to use your car as  it’s going to be traffic gridlock, and you certainly won’t be able to afford a taxi.  The tubes will be rammed, there will be total internet failure, and if the “drought” continues we will have stand pipes in the streets.

We will be doing our best to make sure our camera crews keep moving throughout the games.

There’s some useful information on “hot spots” and how to get around them on this TFL site.

Good luck and enjoy the greatest show on Earth! and if you are watching from your sofa, spare a thought for those of us fighting our way through the crowds.

We really are interacting with our TV and it’s thanks to our love of Tablets and Smartphones

The Nielsen Company’s most recent research on mobile connected devices sheds new light on how consumers are using their tablets, eReaders and smartphones – and where they are using them, too.

According to Nielsen’s recent survey of nearly 12,000 connected device owners:

• Seventy percent of tablet owners and 68 percent of smartphone owners said they use their devices while watching television, and 35 percent of eReader owners.

This is a great leap forward in the way we watch our content and how we interact with it. We can watch X-factor whilst tweeting our friends and debating the contestants talent or indeed sanity. We can vote for them online or on our phone. We can dig the dirt on them on the many gossip websites and we can eventually download the winning song in an instant.

What the ipad and its clones, and the myriad smartphones and laptops allow us to do is also to corroborate and challenge the opinion or even fact we are disseminating.

Whilst watching the riling news on the recent death of Gadaffi I found it enlightening to also check him out on other platforms. Read his biog on Wikipedia, learn about the new government and the next possible rulers and of course  see the jokes flying in on twitter and Sickipedia. Personal favourite Example –  @TonyCowards: Can’t think of a Gadaffi  joke so you’ll just have to *in Sirte” joke here…”

Back to the X-factor.. Sorry… For X Factor fans who just can’t seem to get enough of the highs, lows, latest news, gossip and backstage shenanigans are covering the bases so you can join in across all screens.

As well as newly introduced X Factor Superfans, they’re offering  die-hard fans the opportunity to write a blog for the site, allowing viewers to vent their views, comment and express their feelings about the show as it happens. Fans can watch the show live whilst participating in daily polls on your favourite contestants by visiting the show’s  Facebook site.  All those millions of X-factor twitterers out there can also get involved and join the conversation during the show with #Xfactor.

If that wasn’t enough, you can even download the mobile application on your iPhone where you’ll be kept up to date with the latest stories and videos as well as getting a chance to play with our exciting, brand new 21st Century Clap-O-Meter!

What it shows is that viewers find the  “across all screens” experience and engaging.  For content providers it’s a great opportunity to deliver involving content that supports the big format and extends it.   What’s changed is the experience itself. The audience enjoy the sense of community they get from the addition of social media engagement – Being part of the show as it happens is key here. To be able to influence it is the next big step and will take television formats into the same arena as gaming.

This convergence of platforms to provide one big show  is as they say on ITV com –  “The X Factor online: “What you want, when you want it, wherever you are!”

Personally I’ll be watching Strictly!

And for those who just would like to watch live TV on their Iphone or ipad…

Flawless Showreel 2011

Finally a new reel!

The Bribery and Corruption Act 2010 is now Law! You need to know the facts.

Slides from the Bribery and Corruption presentation

From the 1st July 2011 the Bribery and Corruption Act came into force in the UK

From this date Directors of companies in the UK may be legally responsible for any breach of the Bribery Act carried out by their employees in some circumstances even if they were unaware of its occurrence. So how do you ensure that your most senior 200 mangers really understand what does and does not constitute an act of Bribery within the terms of this new legislation?

Amey one of the UK’s leading infrastructure, engineering and services companies, asked us to create an online bespoke video learning module to allow their managers to learn as and when best suited them.

The module combines a clear and engaging video presentation of the key data delivered by Amey’s senior legal counsel adding credibility to the message, followed by a short online quiz to self test the managers understanding of the Act.

The feedback from Amey’s has been excellent…

“it is very clear, easily navigable and a very useful medium for training”

Online learning offers companies the chance for their employees to keep up to date with vital information, when they want to, and in a way that best suits them.

This means deeper learning and better results.
