Well, as 2018 draws to an end - so does my first year (of many, hopefully) working in Public Relations.

After starting… Continue reading 2018: my first year in Public Relations
I love blog series that involve interviews, mainly because they get a great reception and I meet some pretty fab people through them too.

I also… Continue reading #CutThroughTheNoise – an interview with journalist Kenny Toal, from ITV Studios

My education journey is nearing closure and I'm now ready to get myself out there in the world of PR. Yet 3 years ago… Continue reading How to Ace your PR Course
PSA: my new favourite Twitter account, (as of today) is the Series of Unfortunate Event's page. I often talk about what happens when brands get their PR wrong, but what happens when they get it right? I often see a lot of good PR, I mean, it's all around us every day (whether you realise… Continue reading A Not-So Unfortunate PR Plan
If you're a keen Twitter user, you'd have undoubtedly heard the saying 'the devil works hard but Kris Jenner works harder' following whichever Kardashian/Jenner stunt has hit the news last. UPDATE: I wrote this post a while ago, but since I did the latest Kardashian drama that has come to light is that Chloe Kardashians… Continue reading The Jenner Pregnancy
