Here at Clarity we love an excuse for a great social event, and last weekend we were lucky enough to take a weekend trip to Berlin to network and spend some quality time with our global counterparts.

The weekend was jam-packed: meeting clients, new team members, new faces in the startup scene at the TechStars networking event in a thumping underground venue – in true Berliner party style!

The Berlin contingent were excellent hosts and hooked us up with the best venues so we got a real flavour of the city – sampling some real Bavarian food, and a considerable amount of German beer on our boat party!

Media training is now an integral part of any business. Given how fast quotes and interviews travel – and poor interviews often travel faster than good ones – it is crucial to prepare for a confident message delivery. Green Party leader, Natalie Bennett, may be wishing she’d spent a little longer preparing after describing her own recent interview on LBC radio as “excruciating”.

Host Nick Ferrari pushed Bennett on her plans to build 500,000 new council homes, funded by removing tax relief on mortgage interest for private landlords. She didn’t know the cost of the homes, nor how much would be raised to cover it. And it went worse from there onwards, with large silences, awkward shuffling, and even coughing taking up a large part of the interview. She repeated herself, struggled with questions and attributed the performance to a “mind blank”.

I remember my first experience as an intern. It was for an investment bank when I was 16 years old – young, ambitious but utterly clueless as to what actually happened in the working world, let alone the “exotic credit division”. One thing that I did appreciate was the experience of being in the apotheosis of a challenging, vibrant and noisy working environment, especially when so young. It gave me a feel of what the real world was like, and made me begin to think about my future in a serious way.

Getting your startup off the ground and running can be challenging. A large part of developing a business plan is thinking strategically about the ways you want your business to grow from an early stage startup to a fully established enterprise. Doing your homework is critical to understanding how to amplify your brand and prepare for market entry.

Alas, you hit ‘Enter’ on your Google search: “Does my startup need PR?”  Over 11 million results are now at your disposal – and you thought deciding on dinner was going to be difficult.  The Internet is crowded with various opinions and conflicting ideas, each providing their own merit and judgment for why a startup will or will not benefit from PR.

Regardless of your organization or industry, attracting and retaining talent will always remain a priority. As the employment industry continues to rebuild itself after the 2008 financial crisis, employers are looking for ways to retain qualified talent. Finding a candidate that fits a role can be challenging. Ensuring that the talent you acquire stays engaged and committed is becoming another task that companies must dedicate resources towards.

According to a Gallup poll, less than one third of the U.S. workforce are engaged in their current jobs. For many growing companies, this proves to be a daunting statistic. Recruiting talent that is invested in the job, as well as your company, is crucial towards building a core team of internal employees. The more engaged your employees are, the more likely it is that they will represent your brand well, both inside and outside of office hours.
