    Posted 21st November 2014 by Jon White

    At the moment here at FreshMinds, we’ve been meeting with a range of charities to choose our official CSR partner for 2015, and as we’ve been immersing ourselves in this world, I thought I’d explore what it's like to work in the third sector...

  • FRESH FRIDAYS: What can we expect from banks of the future?

    Posted 07th November 2014 by Lucy Kemp

    Here in our Interim team we've seen a big increase recently in projects focusing on discovering and developing "go to market strategies" for new products and services in retail banking. With that in mind, I thought I'd take a deeper look at the technologies that we're going to see innovate financial services in the future.

  • FRESH FRIDAYS: First impressions count. Right…?

    Posted 31st October 2014 by Ami Jayakrishnan and Bryony Robottom

    From a very young age it's been ingrained in us never to judge a book by its cover, and rightly so. Here at FreshMinds we meet new people on a daily basis and formulating judgments about these people is a major part of our job. We all recognise the initial tell-tale signs of a strong candidate that form our first impression - the firm handshake, the friendly smile, the confident stride towards the interview room. However, what we didn't realise until now is that before they've done more than look at us, our brains have made some incredibly fast snap-judgements based solely on their face.

  • FRESH FRIDAYS: Women and STEM - The numbers aren’t quite adding up

    Posted 24th October 2014 by Bryony Cullen and Karolina Dirgelaite

    Last Tuesday saw an epic 50 hours worth of celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) - otherwise known as Ada Lovelace Day. Beginning in the eastern most country in the world, Kiribati, and ending in American Samoa, the day aims to raise the profile of women in STEM, a worryingly small minority group in the UK at the moment. Here at FreshMinds we think it's so important to have an equal gender balance through our doors, so thought we'd delve into this issue...

  • Financial Food For Thought

    Posted 22nd October 2014 by Jon White

    Financial Services - what do they do? This was the wonderfully open non-sequitur that Economist and Financial Times Commentator John Kay kicked off with at our most recent Financial Services thought leadership breakfast. This lead to a typically lively conversation between the leaders in Financial Services firms and members of the FreshMinds team who had gathered together for this mental workout on a cold October morning!

    You'll be aware of the struggles that many high-street stores are facing as customers increasingly choose to make their purchases online. So what are retailers doing to entice shoppers back to the high-street, and what might the stores of the future look like?

  • Have you got the bounce back factor?

    Posted 06th October 2014 by Lucy Kemp and Sara Murfitt

    Along with the rest of the nation, the FreshMinds team have been gripped by the new Channel 4 series "Educating the East End". A few episodes in, we've noticed a definite theme emerging - the importance of building up resilience. At Frederick Bremer School the focus is on ensuring that their pupils are prepared for the challenges that life will inevitably throw at them. This was perfectly illustrated when a pupil, after being rejected by a top drama school, was told by the deputy head "Babe, these (obstacles) make us more resilient!"
