1 Week in Paris: French, Football and Brexit

1 Week in Paris: French, Football and Brexit

I had the pleasure of spending a week working with our team in Paris as part of our Tour de Zeno initiative. I’d been awaiting my trip with excitement, not least at the thought of all the great wine and cheese I’d be able to stuff my face with (telling myself it’s okay because I’m […]

That Time I Almost Starred in a Rap Video with Flo Rida at TGI Fridays

That Time I Almost Starred in a Rap Video with Flo Rida at TGI Fridays

A day in the life of Bridget Starkey at Zeno Group I’ve done a lot of awesome, crazy, impactful and outlandish things in my career at Zeno to date – can anyone say award-winning underwear? – but filming a rap video is a first in my arsenal of “fabulous life of PR” moments. It’s true, […]

Influencers, Sundance and the Best. Donut. Ever.

Influencers, Sundance and the Best. Donut. Ever.

I recently took a trip to a little ole’ event. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? The sophisticated call it Sundance Film Festival. I call it the coldest, raddest amalgamation of Bravo-lebrities, brand activations and creative talent that ever was. I was on the ground with Zeno client Kia Motors America to support activity taking place […]

Get Acquainted with Chinese New Year, Again

Get Acquainted with Chinese New Year, Again

The whole nation is on the move. Factories and schools are shut down. Don’t even try to talk about genius ideas with your business partners, as all you will get are email bouncebacks along with a “Can’t we wait?” emoji (I’m sure they’ve got one). Yes, it’s that time again. Happy Chinese New Year! One […]

On Culture, Croissants and Crates

On Culture, Croissants and Crates

“We do that too.” Four very simple but often very important words as companies come together, and words that I’ve been hearing a lot in the past few days. It has been a strange but exciting time. Having announced the marriage of Zeno and 3 Monkeys to create 3 Monkeys | Zeno in the UK […]

Fearless in Kuala Lumpur

Fearless in Kuala Lumpur

Story of my one month secondment for Tour De Zeno Earlier this year in August, I embarked on a quick one month secondment to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia of which I thought was an important step in my career path with Zeno. Growing up as a diplomat’s daughter and traveling the world 4 years at time, […]

Some Communications 20/20 Vision

Some Communications 20/20 Vision

[:en]Something dawned on me this week. I have now been working in public relations for 20 years. No big deal perhaps. I’ve been called a veteran for a while, and the hair started to change to a more mature state some years ago now. But it has been making me think back to what life […]

Paw-sitive Thinking on Office Dogs

Paw-sitive Thinking on Office Dogs

[:en]Some things are guaranteed in agency offices. People have tidy desks, people have messy desks. Certain individuals will make fewer hot drinks than others. People will always try to subvert the meeting room booking system. And before long, with a faint trace of optimism but an expectation that the answer will be no, someone will half-jokingly […]

How to Master the Work-Morning Workout

How to Master the Work-Morning Workout

“You are crazy.” That’s what most people say when they find out I wake up at 5 a.m. and hit the gym before work four days per week. (And probably what you’re thinking now.) So why do I do it? Aside from the fact that it makes me feel productive first thing in the morning […]

Cannes Lions: Fearless CEO in France

Cannes Lions: Fearless CEO in France

Last week, I spent several days at the Cannes Festival of Creativity – a seven-day global event for those working in the creative communications, advertising, media and related fields – held yearly at the Palais des Festials et des Congres in Cannes, France. Against a stunningly beautiful Mediterranean backdrop, the days were filled from morning to […]
