What's Next for the Russian Automotive Market after the Opel Exit?

Car sales in Russia were down 36% in the first quarter of 2015 after the end of purchase incentives in December, bit the Russian government has now pledged 10 billion Rubles to support the industry, so we expect to see some recovery in the market. Foreign manufacturers may take advantage of this situation as an opportunity to gain traction in this volatile market. Watch the video for complete insights.

Employee Volunteering: Muck spreading in Islington

Cat Dixby Cat Dix - Corporate Social Responsibility Manager

A farm in the middle of London? Surely not? But yes: fields, real animals (cows, sheep, goats etc.) and a large much heap.  Last week, 17 of us from the London office were shovelling manure on a city farm within a couple of miles of the office.  Well actually we did many other jobs on the farm but, given the smell of fresh goat's poo and the labour-intensity of the task, I think the muck moving is what stayed with most of us!

Having spent a day on the farm two things stood out.  The first was just how much work it takes to keep the farm going: moving the animals; cleaning out their pens; looking after the vegetable and fruit gardens; running a vegetarian café; maintaining the buildings; and delivering education work with children.  The second was how well-used the space is: throughout the day pre-school groups, disabled children and adults, parents and toddlers, and school trips and after school visitors were coming and going.  It was clear that the farm is a valued community space in this part of London.

So how did we help?

How Likely is a Brexit and What Impact Would it Have on Consumer Goods Companies?

As the UK prepares for its general election on May 7th 2015, the Conservative Party is ahead by four percentage points at 36.0% of the vote according to an Observer poll at the time of writing. The significance of this is that if the Conservatives win the election, part of their manifesto is to guarantee to hold a referendum in 2017 to let the public decide whether or not to remain in the EU. Opinion polls conducted among the British public on April 15th 2015 reveal a split among the public on the issue of remaining in the EU, with some indicating a preference to leave, or to remain only on renegotiated terms. This brings the real possibility that Britain may leave the EU in 2017. The effects would likely be more harmful than positive to the UK.
