When I do espouse a view on PR, it is usually a rant – and I guess some folks like those PR rants of mine – Top 50 Global Thought Leaders and Influencers on Public Relations 2023 (Thinkers 360)

If you need one of my PR rants, check out Building Relationships And Rebuilding PR + Publicity (Video) or The Unlucky Seven: PR Pitch Fails (And How To Avoid Them) (blog) or Got A Media Story? Save Your Email — And Your Money (blog)

Now, after that PR interlude let’s get onto the regularly scheduled ????
