We have all been on one of those dates when the other person asks a thousand questions and you feel like you are being grilled by an interrogator for the special forces. Never fun.
Well now you get the chance to be that person. And it will help your career. Eh?
We are bringing the classic speed dating event format to our Valentine’s Week NextGen event, sponsored by markettiers Manchester. You’ll ‘date’ some of the most senior minds in North West PR and get to grill them on everything and everything about their careers, and why they <3 PR so much.
Who will be attending:
- Heather Blundell, managing director, Weber Shandwick Manchester
- Graeme Anthony, GM and co-creator, MancFrank
- Libby Howard, managing director, Intelligent Conversation
- Jen Higgins, managing director, Carousel PR
- Jessica Wilkinson, founder, Petal&Co
- And from our sponsors markettiers Manchester, Josh Wheeler, General Manager
This is a priceless opportunity to hear directly from the horse’s mouth (none of them look like horses, unlike some of your past dates) on what makes a great PR and how they have progressed in their own careers.
If you have those first date nerves, we’ll let you do the interrogating in twos/threes.
NextGen is all about giving you opportunities to develop your talents in a fun and easy-going way, outside of your place of work. So come. No brainer.
Disclaimer: it won’t be an actual date. That would be weird.
If you want to come please email in the first instance Dean Gallagher, PRCA NextGen NW Chairman, WeberShandwick, Manchester Email: email@example.com saying who you are (1st, 2nd, 3rd/4th year student) and where you are from (eg Leeds Beckett University).
Limited spaces!!! Free booze and grub. No really, it’s a no brainer!
