Like all the other Band Aid projects, the popularity of Band Aid 30 will be ephemeral. However, investment opportunities now available through crowdfunding platforms have the potential to forever change market access for retail investors by offering more investment choices and opening up avenues that enable such investors to contribute to sustainable growth in markets that badly need it.

Fairlife: Coca Cola Now Makes Milk (Insert Scepticism Here)

It's going to cost more than milk. Maybe twice as much, but is also supposed to have heaps of additional health benefits. There are also significant health benefits with not drinking milk and doing exercise, but Coca Cola isn't selling that.

This Is How to End Fifa Corruption

Grant Feller

The world's biggest brands should all pull out of their relationships with FIFA at the same time, complete with the knowledge that every single football fan - and pretty much every other consumer too - will hail them as heroes. Let their competitors take their place, let them spend billions propping up one of the world's most loathed institutions and face the opprobrium of customers whose sense of right and wrong will have been heightened by a mass walk-out.

Why the Scots Would Be Mad to Vote for Independence (Not That I Care)

So, next week the Scots will decide if they want to be independent. Let me start by declaring a lack of interest in this issue. A complete lack of interest. I think may be one-eighth Scottish but I really don't care if I have Scottish blood coursing through my veins. It hasn't affected my life either way.

Summer this year has so far been a blink and you'll miss it affair, but it lasted long enough to cause an explosion of Coca-Cola in Somerset. Not an explosion of sales, an explosion of the actual drink itself.

What Kind of Week Has It Been? 7 February 2014

Paddy Duffy

Time was in Primary School, students' pictures of February would be represented by snowdrops and whatnot. But that's unlikely to happen nowadays, as 1) Michael Gove would replace art with testing the shit out of everything if he had half a chance and 2) early Spring vistas more closely resembles a busy Saturday car park in Atlantis.

Reflections on Davos: It's Not Just Women Who Are Working Towards Gender Equality

Cherie Blair | Posted 01.04.2014 | UK
Cherie Blair

Last week, I attended my sixth Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) at Davos, Switzerland. I attended many of the sessions in and out of the forum and there was no shortage of women's faces. But appearances can be deceptive. Many women attending did so, not as delegates but as staffers or spouses of the delegates. Sadly this year among the 2,500 delegates, only 16% were female, down from 17% in 2013 - its highest ever. Yet, despite this, there was a real feeling that it was time to get serious about ensuring that 50% of the world's population get their fair share of the world's resources.

Spoilsports Are No Fun, But They do Make Good Reading

Michael Rosenkrantz

I have to say that Coca Cola , a product that gives your body 10 teaspoons of sugar, which is 100% of the recommended daily intake, within 10 minutes of drinking this product, isn't really about promoting sports. (How coke or pepsi impacts your body). (Maybe one should take an hour to drink and then the effects won't be as bad?)

What is the Future for Online Advertising?

Colin Strong | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Tech
Colin Strong

In the midst of the excited talk about online we are perhaps losing sight that at the end of this sits a human being. And I would argue that this simple fact questions much of the prevailing logic of online advertising and calls for an approach that better reflects core human values and needs.

There are now two worlds: the world of the audience and the world of the individual. One world is not going to replace the other; rather organisations have to work out how to operate in both worlds at the same time, because consumers, customers and citizens have no problem doing this.

Coke's Plan to Teach the World to Sing Is Almost Complete

Steve McKevitt | Posted 21.08.2013 | UK
Steve McKevitt

The Myanmar launch presents Coca Cola with an interesting challenge. Here is a market that not only has no idea what Coke tastes like (sweet, fizzy, vaguely fruity) but one without any previous exposure to advertising either. I've no doubt that Coke will succeed, but I think the manner in which it will how achieve that success is very interesting.
