Stop and think – why mindfulness in the workplace is a good thing

Lauren Heaven • May 9th

Mindfulness is a buzz word you’ve probably come across. Google, the NHS, Transport for London and PwC, to name a few, have all embraced mindfulness in the work place. To be mindful is to be aware. It’s the art of paying attention, and being wary of autopilot.  It’s a tool for good mental health, and […]

We’re all speaking Shakespeare’s language

Grace Procter • April 21st

It might not come as much of a surprise to you to learn that we’re pretty fond of the English language here at Words&Pictures – after all, it does make up one half of the two things we do best! It’s true, though, that our love for language might not be quite so intense if […]

Personalisation – one word of advice

Katherine James • August 23rd

Recently our Studio Manager reposted an advert that appeared on his Facebook feed. It was a t-shirt featuring a printed slogan, which read: Studio Manager.

Going for gold: what kind of team are you?

Lauren Heaven • August 18th

As Rio 2016 draws to a close, we’re thinking about the ins and outs of teamwork and how to get the most out of a team, in sport or through communications.  A weak-link team is as strong as its weakest players. Rugby Sevens is a great example of this. In the 15-player format, if you […]

Lauren Heaven • August 4th

Connecting with the mythical millennial generation in the workplace isn’t as hard as you think.
