We’d like to take the opportunity to note that we have been making some exciting new changes to the website, and to the way our membership runs. If you do experience any strange happenings on the site in the next few days, please bear with us! To learn more about upgrading your membership, take a look at our options here.

With our ‘Raising your Profile’ event a week away, it was fitting to interview Annie Horgan-Smith, the Marketing Controller at Keyline Brands – is PR always worth investing in? We also have another case study with the vibrant Emma-Jane Cross, CEO at Beatbullying, on Intellectual Property, white-labelling and products for fundraising.

Take a look at 'Is no news good news when it comes to business?' the latest Knowledge Peers blog from our CEO, Chris Dines, and we tell you more about our fantastic events coming up, including news from The Pitch and Angel News.
