With all this talk of mindfulness and taking advantage of the serenity of summer to explore and expand the inner soul, we would like to take you deep within—your own company. The Tao of whatever it is you do, as it were. At Spyglass, we hold true to the concept that your brand is only as good as the engagement by your own internal team. We not only stress the idea, we craft the message, define the mediums, and help many companies make it happen. After all, if your own people don’t believe it, why would anybody else?. Employee brand engagement and communications are among the most neglected elements of a company’s marketing plan. We’ve shown scores of companies how to bring everybody along for the ride. It’s more fun that way anyway. So, while people are vacationing and getting tan, rested and ready for a massive fourth-quarter push, may we provide a concise reminder of the importance of the element within so you are prepared for the next leap forward.
Dog day delights? Fetch some August inspiration without leaving the soft embrace of your barcalounger
These are the days when the Internet drags on. The humid, sultry summer is slowly slinking by. If you’re like most people, you’re stuck in the monotony of exploring the same channels, the same sites, tired blogs and social connections. It’s easy to get lazy, and chase the same rodent down the rabbit hole. Allow us to introduce you to the latest innovation in web surfing serendipity. It’s called Random Useful Websites and according to their own seemingly generous estimates, they have already helped almost 700,000 real people polish their brains ever so slightly. You can even have a useful website sent to you weekly. Which can be nice, even when you’ve got other things to do. Like thinking about what animal that cloud looks like…along with a few not so nebulous requests floating through your inbox.
Studies have proven, overwhelmingly, that a little “me” time is good for the mind, body and soul—a hike, a holiday, a short escape from the task at hand. Perhaps, even a film. Your cerebellum needs a break to recharge its creative juices or just the brief opportunity to explore the Zen of nothingness. To this end, we invite you to a brief August respite from your work-related challenges, complements of the Unreasonable Film Festival. It’s SFW and so, so much more.
