Infographic: BUSY How to thrive in a world of too much 

Curioser and curioser…!

Are you busier than a Mad Hatter on a particularly busy day?

If you’d like to take control of your career – and your life – then look no further.

It isn’t easy to make room for the important things in life – the people we love, fun, creativity and ourselves. This book shows you how, with practical suggestions, smart takeaways and novel ideas.

We’re sharing some curiously effective and deliciously life-changing tips from BUSY – How to thrive in a world of too much by Tony Crabbe.

After introducing the book during a recent creativity workshop, it then became the subject of CIPR Inside’s very first #ICBookClub meeting on Twitter.

We put together this visually enticing taster of what BUSY has to offer, courtesy of Alice, the White Rabbit and The Mad Hatter.

Stay Alive! And Thrive in your own Wonderland…

“The guys at Alive understand the complexities of our business which means we don’t need to explain the detail of every project or design piece – they’re already on it, which keeps things moving and delivers the results we need.”

Emily Stoten — Head of Marketing, Selecta

“I feel like they own and care for the project as much as we do! I would not use anyone else for my creative work and think Alive is ahead of the game.”

Jo Hobbs — Communications Manager

“Thanks for all your help. We are delighted with the campaign, both in terms of the creativity and messaging but also the thought taken over the rollout of the materials. All looks absolutely fabulous!”

Sarah Crowdy — Campaign and Media Officer Communications, South East Water

“We went to ‘Alive’ for ideas on how to run a specific employee program in Europe. Alan and his team were brilliant in coming up with fresh, creative and practical approaches. The team took charge and executed brilliantly. We are pleased with the progress made so far and hope to have the same level of partnership and commitment going forward.”

“So glad that we chose Alive to create our new website. As well as taking the time to get the visual side of our requirement right, they worked with us to understand us, our business and our clients and reflect this across the site. We loved their flexible approach, which, coupled with the right level of challenge has replaced our old, clunky site with one we can be proud of. ”

Victoria Ford — Perago

“We got 'Alive' involved to help us shift mindsets across our organisation and they delivered! Using simple, clear and creative ideas the team have delivered us a campaign which has seen a dramatic increase in idea sharing and development. They’ve also played a significant role in creating a culture of shared success. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with again, in fact, we already are!”
