I know at times it can be overwhelming to be across so many mediums, methods, apps and ideas – but by embracing the ‘new’ as you are doing, and then cherry-picking what’s of value and relevance to the businesses and clients we represent, then we’re at least putting ourselves in a position to provide the best possible advice and service. Which I guess is what we all strive for? Best of luck with your new endeavours! Cheers, Trevor

Comment on How to bulletproof your professional PR career by Fiona Simpsonhttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2015/04/how-to-bulletproof-your-professional-pr-career/#comment-1930978 Thu, 28 May 2015 02:47:31 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/?p=7968#comment-1930978 Trevor,
Thanks for this incredibly helpful and instructive reminder. Ours is and always will be, an exciting industry full of opportunity for those on the front foot. As a PR professional who has recently stepped out of one of those cosy in-house roles, to pursue the creativity of freelance, a key thing clients want from me is knowledge and understanding of how to engage with emerging technology. They want the possibilities on offer.
As professionals, we need to constantly step outside our sphere of knowledge and share what we know with each other. For me, this has meant spending time each day downloading/reading/exploring new apps and tech…which has been fascinating and fun. It is how I have just read your piece.
A magic thing happens when PR people are presented with new things – they instantly make connections that yield results. Thanks again for the piece. I do still need to start blogging…your piece has spurred me on!

Comment on Why the customer is NOT always right on social media by Nicholashttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2015/05/why-the-customer-is-not-always-right-on-social-media/#comment-1928831 Mon, 25 May 2015 10:37:14 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/?p=8170#comment-1928831 Excellent article Nicole, I couldn’t agree more with your argument that there’s a disparity in the balance of power on social media between business and their customers.
Whilst the Messina example was good, I’m concerned the response may have been too emotive. Do you think there’s opportunity for the tone to have been equally as assetive but less confrontational?
