Happy Christmas - and what a year!

What a year 2011 has been!

We started off freezing in the January rain, working alongside ActionAid to create the world’s first ‘Happy Bubble’, a place where the best things in life were given freely to passers-by, alongside giant plasmas playing footage of the life saving work that the charity does in the developing world. Together with our survey, which revealed the things that truly make us happy, we achieved wipe out national broadsheet and tabloid coverage and quite a few radio interviews. We’re proud to say that we were chosen to be featured in PR Week’s Campaigns of 2011 (at news-stands right now!) for this very successful integrated communications strategy.

March saw us manning the media room at WOW, the inaugural Women of the World festival at London’s Southbank Centre. We were excited to be working with Annie Lennox, Kate Nash, Paloma Faith and VV Brown. Thank you to Grazia, the Daily Mirror, Radio 4 and Marie Claire for some great press support.

As spring and the Royal Wedding approached, we were delighted to learn that our jewellery client Robinson Pelham had been asked to design a collection of jewellery for HRH the Duchess of Cambridge to wear on her wedding day. The pieces they created are now recognised all over the world, and our invitation to comment on the wedding live from the media centre at Buckingham Palace meant that we had the ear of the most influential global media. It was a day we’ll definitely not forget in a hurry!

As summer set in, we had to fire fight for online dating client,, which once more had to cull members who didn’t belong on the site. The decision to remove 30,000 ‘shreks’ went viral – for the third time in twelve months, the site was featured across global news platforms, from tv and radio to websites and blogs.

Our campaign brought us to the attention of Pussy 100% Natural Energy Drinks, who were gearing up for a global launch with investment from Holly and Sam Branson.

This announcement received over 3,000 pieces of online coverage and a great piece in the Sunday Times. Here’s what we got up to with the Bransons and Jonnie Shearer at the Kensington Roof Gardens one blustery autumn day!

On the 21st of September, it was peace day. Golden Goose PR manned the press office leading up to the event, and the media room at the O2 Arena for the live Peace One Day concert. Broadsheet, radio, showbiz and entertainment media gave us a great show and helped us launch the countdown to the first ever global truce day: the date for your diaries is 21st September 2012.

Towards the end of the summer, we worked with the late, great Gerald Laing; the British pop artist whose striking portraits of Brigitte Bardot and Amy Winehouse are instantly recognisable throughout the world. Gerald was planning his Amy Winehouse tribute exhibition at Thomas Gibson Fine Art in Mayfair. Thank you to Aidan Radnedge at Metro for featuring the exhibition so prominently. We were very sad to hear only a month later that Gerald, aged 75, had passed away. It is a huge honour to us that we worked on what turned out to be his last exhibition.

October and November also came with heart warming projects; firstly for the British Red Cross, to create and man the world’s first ‘Food Insecurity Market’ (we simultaneously contained a front page news crisis for our client Jani-King live from Spitalfields) and then for the European launch of mothers2mothers, an incredible charity that reaches one in five of the world’s HIV positive women. It was wonderful to work with Annie Lennox, XIX and the amazing Kim Chappell of Chappel Productions once again.

As November drew to an end we were busy celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Royal Exchange as a luxury shopping centre with the Girly Show.

Finally, we’ve gotten up to a great deal in December. But if we tell you about just one thing, it has to be the fact we generated over 100 pieces of coverage this month for one client alone: Access Self Storage. Our ‘countdown to Christmas’ advent idea, revealing a room at a different Access Self Storage filled with toys donated for local children’s charities has been an out-of-this-world success. It even got Julien Macdonald to donate Fashion Barbies at his local store!

As the New Year approaches, we have two new wins to announce. One is the most exciting digital fashion launch for young women and the other is an iconic cartoon character that anyone who grew up in the 80’s will love and know. But that’s all we can say for now!

We are really looking forward to the next 12 months.

The Snow Queen casts a spell over the heart of the City

In early December, as excited children eagerly opened advent calendars and edited letters to Santa, a magical spell was cast over the Square Mile.

Christmas in the City was the brainchild of the Cheapside Initiative. For the very first time the Dickensian thoroughfare became a traffic free zone as a Bollywood Brass Band, St. Paul's Choir and mince pie enthusiasts came together for a day of festive retail Nirvana.

Further delights were in store at luxury shopping and dining destination the Royal Exchange.

Visitors to the Grade 1 listing building were invited to open a magical jewellery box and awaken an enchanted Snow Queen who lay sleeping inside. Situated between the pillars of the main entrance, the art deco box – over-spilling with pearls and trinkets large enough to grace the necks of a giant - had a spell cast over it every hour, when the Snow Queen rose from her wintry slumber and danced for all to see. Bustling shoppers could not help but be distracted as the Snow Queen ballerina pirouetted to the Nutcracker Suite, illuminating the heart of the City.

Golden Goose PR worked with installation artist Emma Winter to build the gigantic jewellery box and bring the City to life. Please visit Emma's site to see more of her fantastic creations.

Handling a crisis: ten tips from GGPR

If you're a keen reader of our blog, then you'll know what we were up to at Spitalfields Market this October. Or at least you'll think you will!

All morning the Golden Goose public affairs team was busy launching the UK's first Food Insecurity market. But as soon as we'd stopped for our first cup of coffee, Zoe received a call that meant we had to switch into full blown crisis mode.

In fact, Golden Goose PR did not get off the phone until about 100 hours later. Read all about it in our interview with Gorkana!

Raising 200k for mothers2mothers with Annie Lennox

Today is World AIDS day, and we are celebrating knowing that through a great deal of hard work from Annie Lennox and some incredible people like Emma France, Kim Chappell, Victoria Wall and Carolina Manhusan Schwab, £200,000 was raised on Tuesday night to enable mothers2mothers to build and fund more than a dozen new sites for a year in Africa.

This alone will prevent tens of thousands of women from giving birth to HIV positive babies.

mothers2mothers reaches one in five of the world's HIV positive women and by 2015 hopes to virtually eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV.

We are proud to have supported the launch of m2m's European fundraising outreach and the opening of its London headquarters. Watch this space for more news.

Happy Birthday Royal Exchange!

It's definitely worth getting a year older when The Girly Show turn up to sing you happy birthday.

That's exactly what happened at The Royal Exchange , when it celebrated its 10th anniversary as the premium luxury shopping and dining destination in the square mile this week.

With a festive themed birthday party, complete with a magical Jack Frost, a cirque du soleil style balancing act and a ringmaster greeting guests, there was endless fun to be had. Luxury retailers from Kiehls and Kojis to Paul Smith threw in birthday gifts - not for the Royal Exchange but for their guests to enjoy.

Thank you to Crumbs and Doilies, who provided 500 exquisite mini birthday cakes for all our friends to take home.

Next for your diaries: the 3rd of December, when luxury shops across the city open for a day of Saturday shopping in the run up to Christmas and an enchanted jewellery box comes to life on the steps of the Royal Exchange. If you love ballet, please come and see us outside REX every hour from 10-6 and watch our beautiful snow queen enchant the capital.

Sad farewell to Gerald Laing

In October, Golden Goose PR was honoured to launch the artist Gerald Laing's tribute to the late Amy Winehouse; a powerful collection of pop-art paintings that were displayed for a month at Thomas Gibson Fine Art in Mayfair.

Today it has sadly been reported that Gerald has passed away, aged 75.

It was a pleasure to meet Gerald, share a morning coffee with him at the Ivy Club and hear his stories of Warhol, creating the Twickenham Stadium sculptures, and about his life and beliefs as one of the most important artists of the past century.

We are all sad that he has passed away and are thoughts are with Gerald's friends and family.

Telling A Great Story Together

Golden Goose PR is always flattered if we're asked to share our viewpoints on the industry with a table full of professionals from PR and marketing.

Here's something we wrote after a fascinating afternoon spent with Marketing Magazine and a panel of thought leaders, talking about integrated communications.

Take to the saddle in style

City Cycle Style, a new exhibition by leading fashion photographer Horst A. Friedrichs will be on display at London's Royal Exchange until next Friday 29 October 2011.

The collection captures 40 of the Capital’s most stylish cyclists on their two-wheeled transport of choice; from vintage and fixed-gear to classic lightweight and Pashley bicycles.

Cycling enthusiasts, The Lord Mayor Alderman Michael Bear and Boris Johnson can be seen alongside London’s style-setters including Sir. Paul Smith, the British fashion designer; Jonny Woo, Queen of London’s drag scene (pictured); Hazel Robinson, stylist to Madonna and one half of cutting edge fashion label House of Jazz and Jonathan Kelsey, shoe designer for Matthew Williamson, Mulberry and Hunter.

“From fashionistas to financiers, an increasing number of Londoners are taking to the saddle,” explains Horst. “The bicycle is now being seen as a reflection of your own personality and fashion choices rather than a simple way to get around.”

We couldn't agree more.

Watch the making of video or visit the exhibition at The Royal Exchange, EC3V 3LR between Cornhill and Threadneedle Street.

£10 for a cupcake?

Last week shoppers at Spitalfields market were shocked when food prices soared 800%.

Were the £10 cupcakes and £2.50 apples covered in gold?


This was the UK’s first Food Insecurity Market hosted by TV broadcaster Hardeep Singh Kohli and the British Red Cross (with a little help from Golden Goose PR) to highlight the cost of living in developing countries.

Food insecurity is the term used to describe the issues behind lack of food or poor nutrition. Factors range from drought and floods to unemployment and conflict. As a result, families in some countries are forced to spend 50 - 80 % of their income on buying enough food to live.

Can you imagine spending £15 on your morning coffee? In some countries these kind of prices are a reality.

Our Food Insecurity Market gave visitors a rare glimpse of life in a food insecure countries where these prices are a reality.

We also worked with the talented team at Contented Brothers to create a video on the day.

The Guardian puts the spotlight on Stephen Moore

Golden Goose PR has supported MediCinema, the incredible charity that builds fully functioning movie theatres with surround sound and tiered seating in UK hospitals for a number of years now.

We've worked with the charity to throw some memorable events at BAFTA, attended by stars from all over the world and recently, we conducted a spot of media profiling to announce the appointment of Stephen Moore, former vice president of Twentieth Century Fox as the new CEO of MediCinema.

We were delighted when The Guardian featured this piece on Stephen last week and particularly pleased that it appeared just before the charity's annual Movie Walk which took place on Sunday.

GGPR took part on the walk and brought our client, Pussy Natural Energy Drinks along to pep up the walkers which included this thirsty pair of Stormtroopers.

My hoarder mum and me

Jasmine Harman is known for popping up in sun drenched locations and helping Brits find a perfect property abroad as presenter of 'A Place in the Sun - Home or Away'.

However if you tune in to BBC One at 10:35pm this evening you will see an entirely different side of her life.

Jasmine's mother is a compulsive hoarder and her childhood was spent amongst piles of doll's house furniture, discarded magazines, picture frames and figurines spilling out of boxes.

The cat that got the cream...

At Golden Goose PR we love nothing more than an interesting client rosta.

When we were invited to take a brief to PR Pussy Energy Drinks, the 100% pure champagne of energy drinks only weeks ago, we were thrilled with the challenge.

This young and irreverent brand that enjoys raising an eyebrow has huge potential for social and digital media campaigns, product placement, consumer PR and a great business story.

Within days of meeting the team at Pussy HQ we won our pitch! We're now gearing up to make several major business and consumer news announcements over the coming months, working on a viral campaign, several new retail partnership announcements and movie sponsorship activity.

Listen out for more as we PR Pussy in every corner of the globe....

Business press success

July has been a month of business press success. The artist Natasha Archdale exhibited her first collection of animal portraits, 'Financial Animals' at The Royal Exchange in Bank, working in situ for a day to allow financiers and business people in the area to contribute their own cuttings of the FT to the final portrait in her collection: a very cunning looking fox.

Archdale's incredible giant portraits of the horse and the bull sold before they were even hung. Fortunately the FT managed to get a picture of the bull - along with Archdale's satirical bear with a picture of the BP explosion located prominently in its nether regions - before its owner insisted upon delivery.

At the opposite end of the city, the exhibition of Kate Middleton's wedding dress and jewellery at Buckingham Palace has brought about a surge of additional interest in our jewellery client Robinson Pelham. GGPR arranged an interview at their studio with Kate Walsh from the Sunday Times which resulted in an incredible piece on brands that blossomed at the royal wedding. We've also been working with Reuters this week who came to film the three designers at their studio as news about Robinson Pelham continues to reach countries all over the world.

Financial Animals take over The Royal Exchange

Tonight, Natasha Archdale will host a private view of her new collection, The Financial Animal, at The Royal Exchange in Bank.

Natasha has created an elephant, bull, shark, donkey and other creatures that dominate our financial landscape from thousands of cuttings of global newspapers.

Our favourite is The Bear, representing 'bear markets'. When a bear fights it swipes down on its opponents with its paws mimicking the downward market trend. Natasha made The Bear out of the Financial Times and if you look closely you will spot images of David Cameron, George Osbourne and the BP explosion.

Natasha is inviting all ardent followers of the stock exchange and City folk to contribute cuttings to The Fox, her final piece in the collection. Do visit her at The Royal Exchange on Thursday 7th July as she completes the final touches.

The Financial Animal exhibition will be on display at The Royal Exchange until Friday 15th July.

A week after we announced that they were going on sale, Golden Goose PR is delighted to say that tickets are selling fast for the Peace One Day O2 Arena show on 21st September 2011, that will feature artists Eliza Doolittle, Youssou NDour, Afroreggae, Flawless and English National Ballet, with further artists to be announced. Speakers will include Jude law and Peace One Day founder and filmmaker Jeremy Gilley.

The O2 Arena concert is the biggest event yet for Gilley’s Peace One Day campaign, which in 2001 led a process that resulted in the unanimous adoption by UN member states of the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence.

This day is now fixed in the global calendar every year: 21 September is Peace Day. As well as being the biggest Peace One Day event to date, the concert on 21 September 2011 will launch a year-long countdown to a Global Truce on Peace Day 2012.

Jeremy Gilley said: “Peace One Day is calling for and working towards a Global Truce on Peace Day 2012. We have a clear strategy and we hope this will be the largest reduction in global violence in recorded history, both domestically and internationally. This day is as much about non-violence in our schools, our homes, workplace and local communities as it is about ceasefire on the international stage.

“Everyone has a role to play. The O2 Arena show launches a 365-day countdown. I’m so grateful to all the artists for giving their time to help Peace One Day take this message to the people of the world.”

Eliza Doolittle said, “When I heard about Peace One Day, what they have achieved & what they are now going for, a Global Truce on Peace Day 2012, I had to become involved. You can too. Come to the O2 Arena on 21 September this year and go to to find out more. POD is a ground breaking initiative and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

The O2 Arena show, which will be filmed in HD and broadcast internationally, is the first in a trilogy of Peace One Day concerts produced as part of the London 2012 Festival.

The second show - in Derry-Londonderry on 21 June 2012 - is the opening event of the London 2012 Festival and marks the three-month countdown to the Global Truce. The third show will take place on the day of Global Truce itself, Peace Day 21 September 2012. Information about all consecutive shows including ticket sales and line-up will be available from the Peace One Day website

Others who have supported Peace One Day include Annie Lennox, Kofi Annan, Ban Ki-moon, Angelina Jolie, Lenny Kravitz, Kasabian, Bryan Adams, Peter Gabriel, Yusuf (formerly Cat Stevens), Patti Smith, Charlie Winston, Youssou NDour, Jonny Lee Miller, Joseph Fiennes, Kate Nash, Corinne Bailey Rae, Dave Stewart, Jimmy Cliff, Faithless, James Morrison, -M-, Yodelice, Vanessa Paradis, Ayo, and millions of people across the world.

A little fashion therapy

It has been over week since the big day and the Duchess of Cambridge is quickly emerging as one of the nation's most beloved fashion icons.

Some of our friends at the royal wedding

It was brilliant to work with Lou Hannah, the amazing anchor from France24 reporting live from outside Buckingham Palace on the day of the wedding and to meet Mary Kathryn Burke from ABC America who was thrilled to hear all about Robinson Pelham.

Elizabeth Emanuel, the designer who created Princess Diana's wedding dress in 1981 was absolutely charming. We also got to talk about jewellery with royal correspondent Jennie Bond.

Making history with Robinson Pelham

Friday 29th April 2011 was an historic occasion in every way. Not only were we swept away with the fairytale wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, but Golden Goose PR had a particularly wonderful story to tell that day.

Robinson Pelham, our jewellery client of four years, had been asked to make what has to be the most important royal jewellery commission of our generation: the wedding earrings for HRH the Duchess of Cambridge, as well as jewellery for all of the Middleton family.

The collection included the most beautiful diamond earrings for the Duchess of Cambridge, with diamond set stylised oak leaves, a pear shaped diamond set drop and a pavé set diamond acorn suspended in the centre.

Miss Philippa Middleton, bridesmaid to her sister, wore diamond earrings with a more floral design to compliment her headpiece worn during the wedding ceremony.

A tourmaline and diamond pendant and matching earrings were designed and made for Carole Middleton. Two gold stick pins, one with a single gold acorn at the head and the other with an oak leaf, were also worn by the father of the bride, Michael Middleton and the bride’s brother, James Middleton.

Inspiration for this bespoke collection came from the family’s new coat of arms which includes acorns and oak leaves.

It was an absolute privilege to work with the global media on behalf of Robinson Pelham to ensure that they had access to accurate information about the commission of the jewellery, as well as images of the earrings that Philippa and the Duchess of Cambridge wore on the day.

Golden Goose PR joined the world's press in the media centre opposite Buckingham Palace to comment on the day's events for the BBC World Service and France 24. There was no better place to be on the day than in front of the palace for the highly anticipated first married kiss.

We wish the newlyweds so much luck as they start married life together.

And that's not all we've been up to in the run-up to Kate and Wills' big day!

As the 29th of April gets nearer, we're pinning up our bunting, dusting down our tea sets and getting ready for a couple of global news interviews live from Buckingham Palace on the big day, talking about the impact of the royal wedding on the media morale in the UK.

We've also had a little practice greeting William and Kate with some of our friends from the Brooklyn Brothers! These life-size cut-outs were delivered to media houses across the capital and can be purchased from!

The New York Post leads with the most beautiful royal poll, the lookist dating site with its finger on the pulse of all things superficial has caused a further storm with its latest controversial story: a news release revealing the ugliest and most beautiful royals in history! Golden Goose PR is excited to see that a number of our favourite female style icons are at the top of the survey. At number one is the late Princess Grace, followed by the beautiful Queen Rania of Jordan and our very own Kate Middleton - who beats Princess Diana with a small percentage of votes, proving that British princesses must truly deserve a place in history as some of the most beautiful damsels in the land. This is what the New York Post had to say to it subjects on the matter....

Mirror, mirror on the wall....

Will Kate Middleton be the most beautiful royal?, the dating website for the world's hottest totty has dared to ask the question.

Last week we joined forces with Imagination Studios to host two days of filming for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. The Capital’s leading fashionistas including Liberty London Girl, Coco’s Tea Party and Beatrix Ong came together in a bid to place breast cancer front of mind to the great British public. Style setters and shape makers tucked in to scrumptious bakeries from Brown Sugar Cupcakes and answered one simple question. What does fashion mean to you?

Friday 11th March was our favourite ever project for woman power!

The legendary Annie Lennox, V V Brown, Paloma Faith and Kate Nash took to the stage for EQUALS Live at Southbank Centre as part of WOW – Women of the World Festival. It was wonderful to meet such inspirational women who were so supportive in the press room. The concert was hosted by T4’s Miquita Oliver, Gemma Cairney and Jude Kelly, artistic director of Southbank Centre. Each of these dynamic ladies supports EQUALS, a coalition of charities brought together by Annie Lennox to champion women’s rights the world over.

Equality groupies of every age and sex sang along to ‘Sweet Dreams’ and celebrated the centenary of International Women's Day. Dave Benett and Richard Young snapped the key players before the show began following interviews with Sunday Times Style, GraziaDaily and

The Green Carpet Challenge

Who manages to look on trend and elegant whilst only wearing ethically sourced and enviro friendly outfits? Well, Livia Firth it would seem.

As part of her Green Carpet Challenge (documented on her blog at she has vowed to dress only in sustainable style for the run up to The Oscars. Bottletop is the perfect fit for Livia’s challenge so we were very excited to see her at the Eco Trades Expo at Olympia sporting the gorgeous Luciana gold Bottletop clutch, a really chic addition to their range of popular silver bags.

It’s great to see the flag for sustainability flown on the red carpet and this is what Bottletop is all about- creating opportunities for young people and doing good things for the environment at the same time as creating beautiful pieces that fashion conscious people want to wear.

We hope to see more ring pulls decorating the stars very soon!

Mia Magnolia meets Oliver Farrier-Rampton

The last time their mums were in the Westfield together, it was for the Samsung Pink Ribbon high tea in October 2009. Fast forward a year and three months and here are Helen Farrier and Miki Haines-Sanger's mini people - Mia Magnolia Holt and Oliver Farrier-Rampton!

Mia Magnolia was definitely taken by Oliver's charm and good looks. The pair of them set off on a buggy date to Bebe Bisou where they were rather amazed by a soft toy hammer with 'crash bang' sound effects. Oliver seemed delighted by the sounds, Mia was mildly concerned and very glad to have a gentleman to protect her, even if he is still just six months old!

Here you can see the babies having a good old chubby cheeked chin wag.

Holly sparkles on ice!

Armed with mugs of cocoa, the Golden Geese joined 8.8 million Brits to watch Dancing On Ice this weekend.

What manner of fun and frolics were in store for week three?

We waited expectantly as Holly and Phil floated on screen to introduce the remaining celebrities.

Huge whoops rippled through London as we spotted Robinson Pelham earrings dangling from Holly's ears! She donned gold dragonfly earrings from the boutique London jewellers (and GGPR client!) as well as a solid gold bangle and Botswana agate cocktail ring which glistened on her left hand.

We think she looked simply gorgeous!

The Happy Bubble

Today may be Blue Monday, the most miserable day of the year, but Golden Goose PR has turned it on its head by creating a pop-up Happy Bubble in central London for our global poverty client, ActionAid.

The bubble will be in Finsbury Avenue Square, EC2 from 7am til 7pm today only. Everything in it has been donated or loaned by the kindest of brand partners, including Innocent, the Toy Station, Crumbs and Doilies, Big Trak, Shok Lighting, Mornflake Porridge, The Pure Package and many more. Thank you to all of you for being so generous!

We would also like to thank GSP, the award winning events agency, for making the bubble structure and bringing all the event creative together and Opinion Matters, the european survey company, for doing the research that proved that the best things in life are free. These are the findings that we based all of our Happy Bubble activity on and which, we hope, will continue to inspire more people to help the developing world with ActionAid.

A picture speaks a thousand words

In September 2010, Samsung Electronics Europe invited people all over Europe to take part in 'Everyone Is Art'.

This was an invitation to feature in the first giant collaborative artwork to raise awareness of women and men affected by breast cancer. Over 1,096 people donated photos which were used as a medium to recreate Botticelli's 'Birth Of Venus'.

The campaign generated 163 pieces of print, online and broadcast coverage reaching over 376 million people in the UK and Europe. The icing on the cake came in the form of a giant cheque for $1.5m presented by Samsung to 25 European breast cancer charities.

The folk at caught wind of our campaign and have just featured it on the site! You can read all about it here.

Thanks to everyone at BLAST

Golden Goose PR is very very pleased with our shiny new stationery and we have the creative geniuses at BLAST to thank for it!

We met up with Giff and Tori who completely understood our need to create some new company stationery and business cards that fitted in with our story telling theme.

Blast came up with the brilliant idea of producing mini story books, featuring short tales about some of our top brand campaigns.

Here's what they made for us...look out for the Fee Fi Fo note paper and the Happily Ever After comp slips which put as smile on all of our faces.
