A few weeks ago I asked current public relations interns to share their “tales from the workplace” with the expectation they would remain anonymous. I asked for them to share good, the bad and the ugly.

While it’s not the sunnier side of public relations, it’s something the majority of us have experienced. The dreaded moment when you realize you may not meet a client’s expectations. I know, I know. It’s not something we typically talk about. But, it happens. Why does it happen? From short turnaround time to poor planning, [...]

Some voices are louder than others reaching further and riding that digital wave. Not every brand out there understands how to effectively become part of that conversation and [...]
I’ll keep this short and sweet… It is my goal/mission/passion/hedgehog concept to socially connect good people with other good people – FAST! Seriously.
