Five Types of People at Lovebox

Posted by Gabrielle Dunbar on 20-Jul-2018 08:30:00

Summer means festival season, where people from all over come together to see their favourite artists perform live. Besides the music, one of the most entertaining things to do at a festival is to people watch. Festivals tend to bring out the best in everyone, and allows people to act like their care-free self with very little judgement. Lovebox, one of London’s most popular music festivals, took place this past weekend, and the Champion team decided to take a day out of the office to check it out. Here are the top five types of people you’ll find at Lovebox:

Posted by Tom Luke on 23-May-2018 17:07:31

People often question the return on investment of public relations and earned media. It is true, traditional PR can be difficult to measure. However, I have prospects telling me explicitly that they have seen our coverage in the media and that made them initiate the conversation. I would say that is definitely return on investment.

Successful news-jacking leads to coverage

Posted by Adam George on 15-May-2018 09:00:00

The word “newsjacking” may sound a little sinister – but in fact is a powerful tool that brands can utilise to elevate their profile and demonstrate industry thought leadership, credibility and relevance. It is one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of any PR campaign, and one of the most effective. I spend a good portion of my working week news-jacking and then enjoying the praise of delighted clients who can't quite believe that they have earned a voice in a national newspaper.

Is Your B2B brand brave enough to lean in?

Posted by Richard on 30-Apr-2018 07:58:00

Does your brand stay out of trouble and avoid expressing opinions that may cause offence? Is a neutral position on political, environmental, social, technological, legal or economic issues still really the best strategy for a B2B brand? Is staying above the fray a safe space?

Is there such a thing as bad publicity?

Posted by Phiil on 24-Apr-2018 17:13:12


Another week, another person unwittingly falls foul of the internet mob.  This time an unfortunate executive from PR firm Weber Shandwick who managed to turn an otherwise routine promotional ‘week in the life’ blog into a PR disaster by, seemingly, channeling David Brent from ‘The Office’.

Saying sorry is a hard, complicated and important process that normally is only necessary at times of extreme stress. Whilst I sincerely hope that none of Champion's clients ever find themselves in a situation where they have to apologise, it is inevitable that things will one day go wrong, and it is up to the spokespeople and comms teams to get the apology right.

Is print dead? What impact could this have on  B2B media landscape?

Posted by Ashley Gerrie on 19-Mar-2018 08:30:00

Pressure on consumer titles sees NME shut down after 66 years as sales of top 100 magazines drop by more than half in the UK and Ireland since 2000. If an icon like the NME is dead, then what about specialist B2B print titles, and what should we as B2B marketers do about this?
