What is a buzz word?


A word or phrase, often an item of jargon, that is fashionable at a particular time or in a particular context.


Some of 2016’s top buzz words included amplify, touch base and ecosystem but what’s in store for 2017!?

Data lake- we all know what a database is, well this is on a larger scale.

OOO- Out of the office ‘I’m triple-0 until 4th June.’ (We like this one!)

Virtual Reality- already proving popular amongst activations, particularly in the retail sector.

Disruptive technology- referring to any enhanced or completely new technology that replaces and disrupts an existing technology.

Story telling- using stories to convey important things in businesses because a good story resonates better than a power point!
