Britain’s Big Conversation – a Weber Shandwick EUREF Report

18 Jul 2016

What issues drove conversation online during the EU Referendum? To answer this crucial question Weber Shandwick undertook a manual content analysis of the issues that mattered most (and least) to voters and the online press during the referendum, comparing the findings with online press during the same period. The approach used is uniquely rigorous, iterative and robust. It goes much deeper than counting hashtags or keywords and reveals fascinating dynamics in the development of this ‘big conversation’.

Blog post #69: Building teams for an agile, digital world

18 Jul 2016

“I’m sure it used to be a lot sunnier in June when I was a kid…” This was my response to a colleague the other day when we were bemoaning the spell of unseasonably depressing weather that has been battering much of northern Europe in recent weeks. Despite the effects (or not) of global warming, I’ve no doubt my sun-filled childhood summers are viewed through rose-tinted sunglasses. And I suspect these tints also come into play when we think about marketing back in the “good old days” as another colleague pined recently: “Life was simpler back then, it was all lot less complex”.

Understanding the implications of Brexit

30 Jun 2016

Following the referendum in June 2016, Britain has voted to leave the European Union. Arguably, this is the biggest issue facing business in a generation. The impact of Britain's exit and the way that it is managed will shape our economy and our relationship with the rest of the world for the long-term. Weber Shandwick can help you understand the political and economic implications, the form of settlement that might be undertaken, and help you shape the detail to limit the downsides and maximise any upsides.

Facebook leads the field in social media influence over EU Referendum

08 Jun 2016

Facebook is proving to be the most influential social media platform in the EU Referendum campaign, according to new research by Weber Shandwick and Pure Profile. In a nationally representative poll of over 1000 UK adults, conducted from 27 May to 3 June, 40% of those who had engaged with Facebook said it influenced their views. Most influential were TV and radio debates, with an influence score of 51%, online news at 50%, print news at 46%, TV and radio news at 45% and family and friends at 43%. The poll also found the public leaning 46-40 in favour of Brexit. The generation gap in voting intentions was particularly striking with 57% of 25-34 year olds wanting to remain, whereas 60% of those over 65 want to leave.
