26 February 2014 - 10:40 am We Love Societies!

One of my big passions in my job is that I really love societies! I know how much hard work you put in, what great results you get and more importantly, how enterprising you are. One of my key projects that I run every year is the societies sponsorship- this is where we give you £100 towards your society. Earlier in the year, we opened applications but who were the lucky ones to get the funding?

8 July 2013 - 10:12 am Advertisement or Propaganda?

The most recent exhibition held at British Library is ‘Propaganda: Power and Persuasion’,  which explores international state propaganda from the 20th and 21st centuries. Since I’ve been spending most of my time at British Library recently for my research, I’ve visited the exhibition a few times exploring new things every time. But one question was always there perplexing me when I was paging through books or fumbling in the exhibition store: How different is propaganda from advertisement?

23 June 2013 - 10:53 am Get involved in the festival season – but without the mud

Ah, festival season. A season of wellies, tent cities, disappointing weather and booze-fuelled weekends filled with music, joy and inevitably below-par toilet facilities. I love a good festival, but paying upwards of £150 to slum it in a £9 tent that doesn’t keep out the rain (to be fair, that last part was my own fault for being a massive, massive cheapskate) isn’t for everyone.

So, if you prefer your festivals mud-free and enterprise focused, then the Entrepreneurs Festival could well be for you.
