Is PR a Young Person’s Career?

In case you have clicked onto this blog post in a fit of rage, ready to go all ‘keyboard-warrior’ in my comments section, I can promise I am not saying that anyone is too old to work in PR – didn’t you note the title was a question? I am…

10 Things You Must Do in Liverpool

Since it’s almost time for me to leave this amazing city (the tears are coming), I thought I should start writing some posts about the place before I do go. Even though I’ve lived here for three years, I’ll admit it wasn’t until my second year of living here before…

#FridayFive: Five Films and TV Shows that Influenced My Career
