This week at Sonder we’re tapping into our inner-hippie, cleansing our chakras with a wire brush, zoning-in and, most importantly, getting in tune with the seasons.  We all know them – Summer, Autumn, Winter and of course Spring, which, for those of us in the...

As the world’s first owned media specialist, Sonder is leading the transformation of marketing from cost centre to a profit centre. And now it’s not just us talking about it. Marketing Week UK recently wrote an article highlighting how a number of global businesses are...
