    For the past few months I have been talking to business and media around the world about the importance of authenticity in building successful brands, based on the insights from Cohn & Wolfe's Authentic Brands 2014 Report. It's been great to see business leaders, brand strategists and serious media taking such an interest in the subject. We are now in the process of planning the 2015 report, which will explore in greater depth the powerful idea that 'truth is the only sustainable competitive advantage'.

    Mark Carney officially took up his post as the new Governor of the Bank of England last week with the weight of expectation upon him. Carney was appointed with one clear goal – to achieve significant economic growth in the UK.

    Last week saw local elections held around the UK, with media and political attention focused on the more than 300 local council seats lost by the Conservative Party and the success of the UK Independence Party. UKIP, formed to oppose integration with the European Union and once described by Prime Minister David Cameron as ‘fruitcakes’, increased its number of councillors from 6 to 139, highlighting an antipathy towards the three mainstream political parties amongst much of the electorate.

    British politics has been dealing with a difficult and complex issue recently, that of legalizing gay marriage. Yesterday’s vote in the House of Commons, passing the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, may have produced the desired result for Prime Minister David Cameron, who has publicly backed changing the law on this issue, but its costs politically and personally are more difficult to foresee.
