To mark Talk PR’s 10th anniversary in 2011, we launched TALK TALENT, our multi dimensional legacy project that inspires our work, brings new energy to the agency and aims to set new standards of excellence in the PR industry.
TALK TALENT comprises four key elements designed to nurture new talent both within the PR, fashion, beauty & consumer technology industries:
Talk PR Open Days – We host a series of quarterly Open Days, held at the agency to provide students and young aspiring PRs with a unique first hand insight into life at a PR agency. Open Days consist of lectures, interactive sessions and talks from industry insiders. The idea is attendees leave with a flavour of agency life, the key areas/skills required – and an understanding if a career in PR (specifically fashion, beauty, luxury lifestyle & technology PR) is the right route for them.
We'll be announcing the dates of our 2014 Open Days in January, so watch this space for more information and followus on Twitter @talkpr for updates on how to apply.
Taylor Bennett Foundation - We invest in diversity and inclusion in PR, mentoring and inspiring future PR stars from ethnic minority communities through the Taylor Bennett Foundation. We were the first consumer pr agency to take part in the bi-annual 10 week training programme run by the Taylor Bennett Foundation for eight talented young aspiring pr professionals from black and Asian minority ethnic backgrounds.
The third ‘Talk PR 8’ graduated from the programme in April 2013. Click the logo below to read more:
Talk PR Internal Training and Development Programme – We will soon be publishing our internal training and development programme. This will illustrate the breadth of skills and knowledge needed to work at Talk PR and the varied and vibrant nature of the industry as a whole.
Talk Future - Our scheme for supporting exceptional creative talent in fashion, beauty and grooming. Our first Talk Future clients have seen incredible profile and business success over the last year.
