Earlier this month I had the privilege and opportunity to collaborate with Kristine Simpson and Julia Kent of Young PR Pros Podcasts. These two lovely ladies have created a series of PR related podcasts that is appropriately targeted towards young PR pros (or the young at heart) and offer a variety of tips, advice and information for current, past and future PR professionals. Now, that being said, I am not quite yet a PR professional (I'm in my last year of university at the University of Ottawa), so I was extremely honoured (and nervous) to be doing a podcast myself. Me!? Who the heck would be interested in what I have to say? (Apparently all you readers are so THANK YOU)
When Kristine asked me what topic I had in mind, I wasn't sure what to respond. Being merely a student I don't really consider myself an "expert" or "professional" in any field or topic just yet. I mean my full time job is to learn! So, I cautiously through out "fashion PR" expecting to maybe get a "well that isn't overly practical" or "did you have any other ideas?" At least it was a topic I was passionate about. Surprisingly, Kristine liked the idea so I ran with that.
