“The most politically engaged and enraged British musical since Blood Brothers, but it is even more raw and heartbreaking because it is entirely true.”  ***** Sunday Express

PR = PERSISTENCE, PERSISTENCE, PERSISTENCE

PR = PERSISTENCE, PERSISTENCE, PERSISTENCE

04-the-founderThis weekend I watched the movie ‘The Founder’, a story about salesman Ray Kroc who turned two brothers’ innovative fast food eatery, McDonald’s, into one of the biggest restaurant businesses in the world with a combination of ambition and ruthlessness. It wasn’t an easy journey to the worldwide success we know today. Yet at the close of the movie, Ray Kroc says that the key to success is persistence, persistence, persistence.

Persistence is defined as “the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action despite difficulty or opposition”.

Anyone who has set up a new business will know the level of belief and persistence you need to push it forward; to hold on to your vision and push it across the line. Even when that line keeps moving, whether by design or not, you can’t lose sight of the end goal. It can be tough. There are many hurdles along the way and self-doubt is a constant companion.

THE CHALLENGE OF FACEBOOK LIVE FOR BROADCASTERS

Our Account Executive Orry Robinson reflects on the challenges faced by broadcasters in a digital age after the eagerly anticipated Eubank-Quinlan bout last weekend.

Last Saturday, the nation watched as Chris Eubank Jr. quashed opponent Renold Quinlan to win the IBO super-middleweight title.

A fierce opponent, if only for his persistence, Quinlan eventually succumbed to Eubank’s tireless offensive in a 10th round stoppage.

For weeks, the bout had been billed as one of the year’s biggest highlights on the boxing calendar; an opportunity ITV was well positioned to capitalise on. A pay-per-view event available through the ITV box office for a one-off payment of £12.95, the contest was set to generate millions in sales and advertising revenue.
