In our team meeting at the end of every month, one Cutliner is invited to share a final thought. It’s a cool way to inspire and motivate the team and help set the tone for the following month. I’m always astounded by the creativity and different interpretations that are shared. Some people read stories, others play songs or share lyrics -- the only constant is that it’s always different. Last week, Liz left us with a quote from Alice Parker that hit home for me -- “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” I just loved it and it made me think about the power of a good self pep talk.

A few of us Cutliners recently had the opportunity to hear Tristan Walker, founder and CEO of Walker & Company Brands, speak at an event put on by The Commonwealth Club. The session, Redefining Design, was moderated by John Maeda, global head of computational design and inclusion at Automattic, and provided a fun and lively discussion around how brands are making products that are both visually appealing and highly effective available to all.

Music that helps increase attention span up to 400%? Yes please.

Did you know that most adults can only stay focused for about 20 minutes at a time? And for those of us who live on the Internet, it’s an entirely different game. I mean...I just checked Twitter and my inbox before typing this sentence.
Learnings from The Holmes Report’s In2 Innovation Summit
Jan 29, 2014
Last week, two of us Cutliners were lucky enough to attend The Holmes Report’s In2 Innovation Summit, which focused on “The Future of Engagement.” Most of the speakers were senior executives from PR agencies or in-house PR teams and journalists. The conversations were fun and insightful and below are a few of the things we learned and wanted to share.

I first heard of NeverWet, the “revolutionary superhydrophobic spray-on coating that repels water, mud, ice and other liquids on a variety of surfaces,” a few months ago when this demo video dominated my Facebook newsfeed.
