    Communicating the Olympics Story with Scott Field

    Communicating the Olympics Story with Scott Field

    We welcome Scott Field, Director of Communications at the British Olympic Association, onto this episode. We discuss how communications were led for Tokyo 2020, how TeamGB maintained momentum during the pandemic and how the story was told despite there being no crowds and limited access for press. 
    Building a career in sport, having worked at football clubs, the FA and now with TeamGB, we ask what the common misconceptions are about establishing a comms career within sport - namely, having an encyclopedic knowledge about a team or sport being essential, when actually good communications skills are the priority. 
    This is our last episode of Season3, a mini season for 2022! We are currently working on plans for Season 4 and if you'd like to get involved as a guest, partner or sponsor please email info@threadandfable.com

    Accessible Social Media With Alexa Heinrich

    Accessible Social Media With Alexa Heinrich

    This episode we speak with Alexa Heinrich on accessible social media. Alexa founded Accessible Social outside of her 'day job' as Social Media Manager for St. Petersburg College in Florida. 
    With so much content being shared across social media by brands and organisations, the gaps in accessibility are ever apparent, something we wanted to explore with Alexa and understand why as communicators, we should all be building accessibility into our strategies as business-critical, not just as an add-on. 
    We find out how we can all improve our own social feeds and where we can go to get more help. 
    Alexa is also co-founded of Social Media Tea, which is both a hilarious and often heart-warming community of examples, thoughts and issues among those working within social

    If anyone had predicted everything that's happened in 2022, we'd be surprised!

    Influencers and Supply Chain and Cost of Living Comms

    Influencers and Supply Chain and Cost of Living Comms

    We're back for a short and sweet Season 3, bringing you a handful of episodes to wrap up 2022 with. 
    First up, we're talking about the influencer campaigns and the impact on supply chain, wondering whether (at times) marketing, comms and operations talk... 
    We talk about the Adanola range that quickly ran out of stock following a Molly Mae campaign https://adanola.com/ and the Krissy Cela range, which you have to be quick or miss out on https://uk.oneractive.com/ - do these ranges effectively create a hype around them like the Crtz https://www.crtz.xyz/ brand, where drops are meant to be competitive and short lived, or are they potentially limiting customer engagement by often selling out even as a campaign begins? 
    Rebecca may not be able to pronounce it, but we also talk about the 501% rise in searches of the Negroni Sbagliato following a viral sound on TikTok, clipped from an interview by House of Dragons stars talking about their drink of choice. Stunning. 
    The cost of living communications focus, finds us listing some of the key principles we think are important as communicators, whether we have an internal audience or include it within external messaging. 
    A blog Rebecca wrote here on the cost of living crisis impacting students as well as a mention of Dan Slee's blog focusing on public sector comms.
