Last Thursday we hosted another 12 aspiring PRs at Talk Towers for our tenth Open Day since setting up our Talk Talent initiative in 2011. The attendees experienced a day of talks & interactive sessions that answered questions about the PR world, its role and the skills required to thrive within it.
We were excited to welcome Bespoke Banter founder Scott Wimsett as our guest speaker. Coming from an agency that designs, produces and distributes creative and engaging video content for some of the world’s largest fashion, beauty and luxury brands, Scott was well placed to discuss ‘the evolution of PR’ – what the essential skills are now, the blurred lines between PR & social media, the power of video in the industry today and the importance of creating compelling storytelling content.
Thank you to everyone who came along on the day and applied. The feedback we received was fantastic as always, and we’ve shared some of the highlights:
“I was looking forward to the day immensely and it surpassed all expectations! I learnt so much about consumer PR and left feeling assured and confident that this is an industry in which I wish to pursue a career.”
“I had an amazing day and I learnt some really valuable things, which were extremely helpful and informative! Talk PR seems like a fantastic company to work for and I’m so grateful I got a chance to spend the day there!”
“It was really interesting, and fun to see you how you work at Talk PR, and I really enjoyed learning more about the industry, it made me even more sure that I want to go into PR when I graduate.”
“I got some great advice chatting to some of the girls about their careers and I really appreciated the time taken to welcome us all in and teach us about the company.”
