Home Bear – Hopelessly Lost

Hullo?
You-who!
Excuse me?
Can you help me?
Hi. My name’s Home Bear.
I’m hopelessly lost.
I bumped my head and now I can’t remember my way back home.
You see, I had a home. The very best kind. With a red roof, white walls, a blue door and a garden full of flowers. It’s warm and toasty with a TV, cosy bed and warm fireplace. But best of all, that’s where my best friend, Hannah Banana, is. We do everything together. We eat together, watch TV together, play together in the woods and snuggle as we sleep. We are, ahem were, two peas in a pod.
And we went everywhere together. We’ve never had a day apart since the day she was born.
Until now.
I miss home terribly. I’ve been on my own for about a week. Maybe more. It’s all a bit hazy since this bump to my head.
A little birdy told me that Hannah Banana dropped me whilst playing hide and seek in the 10 feet tall cornfield.
I can’t believe she’d just dump me. Not Hannah Banana.
But here I am, still in the cornfield.
I can’t find my way home. The birds and bees have tried to help but they don’t know where home is either.
I don’t even know which direction home is.
All I want is to go home.
It’s all I can talk about. Home.
And that’s why the birds and the bees round here call me Home Bear.
Do you think you could help me find my way home?
I don’t think I could do it without

Launch – Meet the Press

As a start-up one of the great opportunities is finding out what the press want and more importantly knowing how to deal with them. The three key points made were:

  • relationship is most important
  • become a part of the community
  • storytelling in digital pr is a must

The final session was a panel discussion with Matt Martin, Keith Stuart, Alex Wiltshire, Colin MacDonald and  Keith Andrew with Jo Twist chairing.

 

 

They all talked about how the development diary is important, knowing the story around the company and also finding the marketing angle is their sweet spot.
