Kenneth Page - Apr 07, 2015

The keys to Number 10 Downing Street lie in Scotland. Last week’s performance by Scottish National Party (SNP) leader and First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, in the televised leaders’ debate, has firmly positioned Scotland and the SNP as the ‘kingmakers’ at the upcoming UK General Election on May 7.

Staying Relevant in the "Age of Convergence"

Nelson Fernandez - Apr 06, 2015

Had I left the world of public relations not long after starting out professionally in the early 1990s, then reemerged in it in 2015, odds are good I would not recognize what I had stepped into.
