I didn’t know, but apparently in the UK as in the US one of the Christmas fashion must haves is an ugly quirky possibly knitted jumper to wear at special occasions before the winter holiday such as University and Business Christmas parties or more specific “ugly Christmas sweater parties”. Since 2012, Save the children” have contributed to the spread of this silliness organising their “Christmas Jumper Day”.

Looking forward to the next travel opportunity and having had the opportunity to work on strategic plans that included an in-depth study of the tourist market, here are some reflections on tourist figures, now almost always connected online.

And one can’t speak of it without naming online portals. But, what are the best real estate portals in Europe?
I couldn’t stop myself bringing this direct marketing campaign to your attention, even if I tried to forget about it and postpone it, but this is so odd and sort of funny, at the end I’ve decided to give in and share. Ibis, the famous hotel chain, in order to create awareness for one of their value added services – the Ibis business card – has created a very special offer for customers that own the card. Suspense.
What’s KLM? Apparently last year lots of Germans [46% to be precise] weren’t able to answer this very simple question.

Is everyone back from holiday? My blog is! As a good purpose for this restart of the year, I’ll follow the advice of Tim Hortons advertising campaign and take a coffee more often with one of my neighbours. The coffee brand have organised a social experiment in Canada using the “coffee’s power” and its brand experience convincing neighbours to “properly” meet and chat for the first time. The result is fantastic.
Boredom is usually associated with negative concepts, but in reality it’s very important in order to relax, to make order among thoughts, to gain awareness and awaken creativity. Sioo:x, for example, have used boredom as a value added of their product. Do you want to know how? Continue reading.
