2020 has certainly been a year none of us will ever forget. Fires raged in January and Caronavirus hit our shores in March.
It has impacted everyone and every workplace.
In my view, the COVID-19 pandemic has only further demonstrated the value of PR and communications. This new ‘new normal’ is about building trust not selling, about educating and engaging. That is what we do.
After two years hosting Smoke Signal, I have decided to take a break from the podcast as I look to focus on other passions – managing a growing agency, spending more time with family and keeping up my favourite pastime – running.
I have thoroughly enjoyed building this podcast and speaking to so many interesting people across the PR and marketing spectrum. Thank you to everyone who has been involved.
I also see an increasing number of other sources of news and insight – The Public Relations Institute of Australia has recently held a series of informative webinars and there is fellow PR Podcast TalkTrack with Shane Allison being joined by Mylan Vu this season.
Perhaps down the track I’ll pick the podcast back up. I’ve also recently read some interesting PR books so may post about them from time to time.
Thank you to everyone who listened and engaged with the podcast. I really appreciated the support and interest in what I find the fascinating world of PR.
