Let’s hear it for the girls!

Happy International Women’s Day, y’all! Shoutout to all the fab and fearless women in our lives who truly keep the world goin’ ‘round. What better way to celebrate than by highlighting one of the best ladies we know? Earlier this week, our EVP Ann Barlow penned a byline in Ragan Communications on how HR and comms departments can work together to create a better workplace. She simply did not miss with this one. 👏👏👏 Be sure to check the piece out here.

Bora Bora backlash

Tarte Cosmetics is the talk of the town yet again this week after another influencer trip has seemingly missed the mark with some consumers. As if a getaway to Bora Bora via private jet wasn’t enough, the makeup company has smothered their influencers with gifts galore and more during their stay, resulting in nauseating and out of touch content. Overall, folks at home are finding it all completely unrelatable, according to AdWeek. Tarte, take a look at this feedback and let us know if you need help with your influencer marketing strategy…we know some folks who can lend a hand.

Plus one for Todd!

Though we’ve never met before, Mr. McDonald, we feel like we know you. Your take on the benefits of laughter at work in your recent LinkedIn piece is right up our alley. We have found such joy in laughing with our colleagues, so much so that we learned we actually like them! It’s crazy what endorphins can do. 🤪
