My week in pictures: travel, tech and fashion with a conscience

I’ve done a lot of talking this week, starting with a panel on reinventing your media brand at Web Summit in Dublin.

Carla Buzasi web summit
Welcome to #websummit. I’m on the content stage at 11.20 today with @carlazanoni from #wallstreetjournal & Charles Yardley, MD of @forbeslife, discussing the reinvention of media brands online. #wgsn #Dublin #content #digital 

Web Summit is, first of all, pretty much the only conference in the world where the queue for the men’s toilets is always longer than the women’s (men outnumber women by some insane percentage I’m not mathematical enough to work out). It’s also the only place I’ve ever been where they dye the sheep outside the venue to match the logo. In fact, it’s the only conference I’ve been to where they have sheep in the vicinity.

Back inside, I was joined by the Wall Street Journal’s Carla Zanoni and Charles Yardley from Forbes Life to discuss digital firsts, communicating with millennials, and staying true to your brand, whichever platform you’re publishing to.

Moderating a panel ‘Communicating With a Cause’ @Le_Book’s #connectionslondon event 
A quick flight back to London, and I headed straight to Le Book Connections to talk communicating with a cause alongside Shubhankar Ray, Global Brand Director at G-Star, Anna Coscia, the brains behind Always’ Like A Girl campaign, Cyrill Gutsch, founder of Parley for the Oceans, and Allie Tsavdarides from Toms. The insight these four visionaries shared was inspiring beyond words and as soon as we have the video from the event, we’ll post to WGSN Insider for you all to see.

In the meantime, I’m off to balance out all that talking (not to mention time sat waiting for a four-hour delayed flight to Dublin) with some running around a tennis court.
