Conclusions and Q&A

I believe that the best learning experience is engagement. Although the progression of students will not be officially assessed by myself, I will be monitoring the interaction of all students to make sure they are getting the most out of the course.
I have been lucky enough to have had an extraordinary career in PR. Since moving into high profile Public Relations over ten years ago, I have been at the forefront of press communications of many historic events, including the London Olympics, Surrey School Games as well as promoting achievements in the Guinness Books of Records, and more recently, achieving Head of PR and publicist for Carole Middleton and Party Pieces. In the last ten years, my own media company has promoted 100s of bands, performers, events, festivals and small businesses across the UK through digital PR. I continue to represent figures in television and the media.
