Answering the difficult questions: has life become a numbers game?

Kanye West - ever famous for being somewhat outspoken and never shy - has recently sparked up yet another conversation. This time, it's with the question: what would happen if our lives weren't so defined by numbers? In a world that's becoming slightly Black Mirror-esque, social popularity is becoming more and more important. So much to the point that not only has social media become a big part of our lifestyle, but also in our careers. Which i'm not saying is a bad thing by the way, part of my job includes social media management - and I love being able to use platforms to make a difference. The way that it should be used.

So, one could argue that doing something bold and different, that generates attention per se, is PR right? I mean, it's certainly something worth thinking about. When you look at it very, very bluntly, 'taking a stand… Continue reading Answering the difficult questions: is equality just a PR stunt?

5 things you can expect from your first job in PR

So i've been dabbling in and out of PR employment for the last year and a half now. I've interned at various agencies up and down the UK, including at Tecmark where I currently work.
