WARNING: NOVICE IN CONTROL OF BLOG CONTENT
Tuesday, 3 May 2011
Alongside this uphill struggle we (a six person student PR agency - Pocket PR) have been summarising the two month long pro-bono campaign we ran for Safe in Sound a sub-division of Southampton Voluntary Service... this is the reason my blog has been so neglected.
I am two weeks away from finishing my University degree and can honestly say I cannot wait (having spent my entire life in education - without even the cheeky gap year!). There is no rest for the wicked however because the day after completing my final exam I start full-time at the Winchester based PR Agency Remarkable!...all I can say is the best is yet to come!
Despite the lack of content in this post I felt I had to write something:
A. so everyone knows I'm alive and...
B. because of the value of communication.
In order to build a strong online presence you have to update content regularly, which my blog has lacked. However when this work is out of the way there will be regular updates and I may even move to the more 'professional' world of Word Press (despite my initial inability to pass page one when trying to set up a blog on it...) Also keep an eye out for my website I recently created it will be going live soon and discusses the value of creativity, both from a management perspective but also a graduates perspective of trying to find a job!
For now I will just leave you with a video we (Pocket PR) produced to include in our very last presentation for our PR and Communications degree. It summarises the Safe in Sound awareness campaign we ran and I must admit I am more than a little bit proud of it!

Most people when they think of Shell think bad things...
Some would say that corrupt is the adjective most often used to describe politics (in the north of) Nigeria. On the other side of the spectrum, the word that most suitably portrays the landscape of its oil-rich south seems to be hellish.
‘The Niger Delta, a region of mangrove swamps and creeks is crisscrossed by thousands of miles of pipelines. Oil spills - the result of neglect by oil companies and vandalism by militants have caused significant environmental damage in this region. The area is further scarred by “flaring” which causes acid rain and air pollution’.
If YOU were in SHELL's shoes, stuck in the middle of a war zone, a volatile environment where gangs form an everyday part of life and criminal activity is endless; what would you do? Like Shell, would you choose the Government as your key stakeholder over local communities? Without ‘taking care’ of the government’s needs Shell wouldn’t be able to operate within the region.
