The Times, They Are a-Changing….for HMV

While I would never purport to be a massive fan of Bob Dylan, his 1964 song sums up where UK retailing is right now. The recent demise of HMV has been a sobering moment for all music lovers, whether your tastes include Chopin, The Beatles, Count Basie or Girls Aloud. The point is, the way we consume music - and other products for that matter - is changing fundamentally. And such radical change is having a huge effect on the high street, which continues to bear the brunt of painful ‘retail realignment’....

Plot, plan, prepare and then don't panic!

Posted on by Faye

It’s the calm after the storm here in Prova HQ. The Motorsport Industry Association’s (MIA) Low Carbon Racing Conference and the Autosport International Show took place last week and the Prova team was busy representing four clients and itself for the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the show, no simple task let me tell you....

No time for January blues, it’s Prova red!

Posted on by Sarah

Christmas and New Year feel like a distant memory now, little reminders dotted around the office; a cracker hat, a wilted poinsettia and oh yeah a couple of pounds I need to shift (who brought all that pre Christmas baking into the office? Oh yeah it was me). There has been no time for January blues in the Prova offices, it’s been go go go – ease into the New Year? Oh no! There is no rest for the wicked. So, with three days under our slightly tighter belts, it’s Autosport International time....

Brilliant Insight

Posted on by Prova

When I first came to Prova on the 2nd January I was unsure of what to expect. Overall, ‘unsure’ would sum up my general attitude towards my future career at this time. I had done work experience before at a newspaper and had spent the majority of the week twiddling my thumbs. I didn’t feel as if I had accomplished much apart from an extra name on my CV. When I turned up to Prova, on their first day back after Christmas, I had a bad feeling that things could be similar- how wrong I was about to be!...

Sibling rivalry: PR's arms vs. journalism's legs...

Posted on by Prova

Journalism was always the degree I wanted to have, but never the career. As a current undergraduate journalism student, I’ve spent the week before Christmas working with the team at Prova PR. Ending my semester as a journalist and then immediately walking into a PR office has been a little like stepping out of a hot tub in the middle of winter....

Electronic and packaging recycling targets set

Posted on by Prova

UK businesses are being charged £50 million over the odds to have their electronic waste disposed of, because e-waste regulations fail to consider the value of raw materials that can be reclaimed from tech trash. While businesses and consumers alike are increasing participating in recycling, this is yet to extend to WEEE....

Energy Bill

Posted on by Rebecca

The long awaiting Energy Bill was finally published on 29 November and as expected it received rather mixed reviews from industry stakeholders. The government press release believes it to be a ‘radical reform that will kick start a renaissance in construction of low-carbon energy infrastructure and low-carbon manufacturing supply chains’. However, many felt that the bill didn’t go far enough in supporting the green goals that the coalition apparently stood for....
