  • Dyslexia: Work Differently

    STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK YOUR BONES. BUT CAN WORDS REALLY HURT YOU? “Your daughter should find a less academic school.” – Primary school teacher to my mother “You can’t possibly be… You would never have been let in.” – My university tutor “For f*!?s sake.” – Everyone I have ever spilled a drink over…

  • Work Differently

    Written by Louie Connaris, Film and Content Editor/Assistant at Now. It’s really easy to lose yourself in your work and just autopilot through it all… until you hit that wall. You just can’t seem to make shots work together, no matter how you arrange them; no crossfade, no graphic work, not even iMovie’s mosaic wipe…

  • Learn. Listen

    When I found out that we were going to be working with the Women’s Equality Party, my first thought was, ‘FANTASTIC’. What a great cause to dedicate my time to and still call ‘work’. I thought I was fairly in-the-know about gender equality: I may not be able to list off stats about it, but…

  • Be Curious & Study

    As a careful, organised, and meticulously scheduled person, there was a time where I would regularly turn down new things and unplanned events – I would say no a lot more than I would say yes. It was much easier that way. No need to panic, no need to worry about the consequences. However, things…

  • Play: Young Voices

    Last February, I was lucky enough to find myself at the O2 watching an extraordinary spectacle: 7,638 children from dozens of different schools singing in harmony. This was Young Voices in action. Young Voices are, “the largest children’s choir on the planet”. Their aim is to provide children with a music experience that they will…

  • Fail Happily

    Failing happily isn’t easy to do. But in an industry where failure occurs on a daily basis, it’s more important than ever. To fail is inevitable. We all do it, on varying scales. You might make a tea when someone wanted a coffee, or you might present 3 months of work that gets totally canned…


  • Challenge Yourself

    Written by Krystle McGilvery, Financial Controller at Now. ‘I can do anything I set my mind to!’ That’s what I told myself 6 months ago, when I decided to climb Kilimanjaro. I had failed to research what the hike entailed or the training required, but assumed that as I am generally fit and healthy –…


  • Look For New

    Written by Suzi Paddison, Creative at Now. “Eureka!” – Archimedes, (a very long time ago) Although we don’t always shout ‘Eureka’, as a creative sometimes the right ideas seem to appear out of nowhere when you least expect them. For me, it usually happens when I finally stop thinking about having the right idea. Yet,…


  • Aim for Better

    Years ago, for my birthday, I was given 3 copies of Sheryl Sandberg’s (Facebook’s COO), ‘Lean In’, which advocates women ‘keeping their foot on the gas’ of their careers. At the time I was pretty horrified. If I leant in that much I’d be sick on my shoes and fall flat on my face. And…
