If you’re available and keen to attend the training in London on 9 March, post your answer to this question in the comments box below. First comments, first enroled.


  1. Bart Misiak says:


    As a 15 year old Richard Millington was fired from his first job as a community manager because he could not prove that he was doing a good job for the organization he worked for. In short, he did a good job but could not prove that his work profited the company. A classic PR problem with evaluation.


  2. Jillian Moore says:

    Fifteen year old Richard Millington was fired from his first job because he was not given the necessary support and constructive criticism to improve his work. He was meeting his job description, however the organization could not see the benefits of his hard work. He lacked feedback and guidance, and was fired because of this.


  3. That was easy!

    Thanks for entering and congratulations on winning, Bart and Jillian. I’ll pass your email details to Richard Millington – and do hope you’re able to take him up on and benefit from the masterclass.
