Yesterday the Nobel Peace Foundation announced the names of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner. Actually this year it’s winners as three women were jointly awarded the prize for 2011.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman were awarded the prizefor their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.
For UP THERE, EVERYWHERE it was especially exciting as we can now show the work we have been doing for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
The concert happens on the 11th December every year in Oslo, following the award ceremony, and UP THERE, EVERYWHERE has created a new identity for this world-wide televised event, including the design of a new website, which will launch next week. The concert attracts stars such as Paul McCartney, Sting, Will Smith among many many others.

I’ve been down in Switzerland for the past two days at a client’s company meeting, in a small Swiss town in the pre-alps. I always enjoy coming to Switzerland. I gave a presentation yesterday on “The Value of Brands” and obviously Apple came up as an example. It struck me just what a debt so many people owe to Steve Jobs, how he really did change the lives of so many people- not least myself. Many of us grew up as he created products that changed the way we worked, lived and played. A remarkable man.
