The UK’s Best PR Student Blogger 2018 – that’s me!

Well who’d have thought? I certainly wouldn’t have. Shock, elation and more shock were all feelings felt on Friday morning when I received the news. I had no idea we had even come to the end of the #BestPRBlogs calendar for another year so was not expecting the result to…

#PlacementProfile: Emma McCann | Associate Technology Consultant

Hello. Welcome to my newest blog series, documenting the thoughts of placement students as far and wide as I can.

#PlacementYear: Month Nine

I’m almost three quarters of the way through my placement. It’s all starting to get very real that I’ll be heading back to university quite soon. I received a text from Student Finance reminding me to apply again, another thing added to my never-ending to-do list. Top of that list…

Do We Share Too Much Online?

Social media. One of my favourite topics to talk about, only I haven’t really voiced those opinions on here that much. I could probably write a book on my thoughts of the internet giant, but there are plenty of books already out there complaining and praising the thing most of…

What Makes an ‘Influencer’ an Influencer?

Did you know, there are people out there, self-employed, being paid thousands of pounds just for a post on Instagram?

I WENT TO SONY’S BRIT AWARDS AFTER-PARTY

Firstly, what. the. (insert preferred word here). Me. At the BRITs after-party. ME?!? I honestly, honestly, honestly, can’t express enough how much I feel like I’m living a dream. Things like this don’t happen to people like me. 12 months ago I was pulling pints and serving the local alcoholics of…
