You don’t have to be Samantha Jones to work in PR

"Oh, you work in PR? You must be like, super loud then" "You can't be quiet and work in communications!" "If you're not confident, you're not going to make it"  "But isn't your job just like, socialising?" "You're an introvert? You won't do well here..." I'm not usually one to succumb to the agg of… Continue reading You don’t have to be Samantha Jones to work in PR

John Lewis have lost their Christmas Ad touch… #SorryNotSorry

Nothing says 'festive' like the John Lewis Christmas ad. It's iconic, has been for years and I kinda' thought it always would be. #MozTheMonster was a big success for them last year, their pre-release marketing was stunning and the ad itself was so triumphant in capturing the attention, the minds... the hearts of the masses.… Continue reading John Lewis have lost their Christmas Ad touch… #SorryNotSorry

Is there any place for marketing campaigns like Coca-Cola’s Christmas truck in 2018?

We all (and when I say 'we', I largely mean 'me') love it. The Coca-Cola Christmas truck. Because nothing quite says 'it's the festive period!' like a big red truck handing out free canned drinks, right? Well, whether you're a fan or not, it's undeniable that Coca-Cola has enjoyed an entirely successful longstanding Christmas marketing… Continue reading Is there any place for marketing campaigns like Coca-Cola’s Christmas truck in 2018?

Banned Iceland Ad - Rang Tan

You played yourself, A.S.A. – how a banned advert will probably be Christmas #1 this year

How they didn't see it coming I don't know. As I'm almost 100% sure we all did. Publicly banning a Christmas advertisement that highlighted yes a controversial, but also very topical and very serious issue was never going to do the A.S.A any favours. Not least for their reputation as an official body, but also simply because… Continue reading You played yourself, A.S.A. – how a banned advert will probably be Christmas #1 this year

#PowerAndInfluence overview – PR and morals, where do you draw the line?

After being a keen follower of the #PowerAndInfluence discussions, hosted by PR-superstar Ella Minty, for a while - I was so pleased when I was asked if I'd like to host one. Amongst some of the biggest names in the industry, it was a total honour to even be a part of these discussions, let alone a… Continue reading #PowerAndInfluence overview – PR and morals, where do you draw the line?

Your voices count. Really, they do!

How can you make a change if you're just one person, right? That's what I always used to believe until I came across this quote (back in the good ol' 2013 Tumblr days). Be the change you want to see in the world And ever since then, it really did begin to change my outlook… Continue reading Your voices count. Really, they do!

How are youtubers their own PR demons
Student/PR

This is how YouTubers can (and do) become their own PR demons

You'd think by now that people would be aware that they need to be careful with what they say online. But evidently, that isn't always the case. I've been thinking a lot lately about YouTubers and how many apology videos I see on my timeline day in and day out. In one sense, I do… Continue reading This is how YouTubers can (and do) become their own PR demons

I’m a 21-year-old who doesn’t drink, so what?

Okay so disclaimer, I do drink really. I enjoy a night out as much as the next person and cocktails when I'm in the mood for them are always great. However, I think what makes me different (and probably a bit weirder) than all my friends and other people my age, is that I just don't enjoy… Continue reading I’m a 21-year-old who doesn’t drink, so what?

Let’s talk about the taboo subject of journalists & PRs

I'm learning a lot in this industry, and I'm learning it fast. Something I've picked up on while dotting in and out of the PR industry over the past year and a half is that there seems to be this thing between PRs and journalists. They find one and other really hard to work with... Apparently. I've… Continue reading Let’s talk about the taboo subject of journalists & PRs

See that door? Quit this scene, you’re not a dancing queen… Here’s the PR behind the dancing

When was the last time you heard Brexit being widely spoken about? Probably before the Conservative party conference right? If you're nodding your head right now in agreement, you should know this is no coincidence at all.
