[Editor’s Note: My colleague, Kate Ottavio, apparently doesn’t do these things. . . I do. You can find her post on the topic here.]
Spin — Heck yes, but spin it as ‘framing.’
Flack — It’s why I’m here. The conjugation of the verb form is easy – I flack, you flack, he flacks…the noun form — I am a flack.
Bribe — Well, not really — I have been known to offer things for free (food, samples, “review” copies . . .).
Pester — Seriously? It’s half my job.
Hover — Like I’ve got a jet-pack.
Since school’s closed and no one’s around to supervise detention we’re taking a break until Tuesday. Enjoy the day off folks — we’re back in….
Welcome to the conclusion of Week 1 of PRBreakfastClub.com. It’s been a great week for us here and on #prbc. We hope you’ve enjoyed our content, banter, and anything else you may have found of value (music, pictures, literature, fashion tips…whatever it may be).
In case you’re concerned you missed a crucial post this week, I present to you, in alphabetical order (because I like to keep a bit of mystery in all our lives) this week’s Top 5 posts.
This one’s in response (expansion) to a post from the lovely Ms. Campbell (@prsoapbox), who was kind enough to grace me with her company at dinner last week along with Ms. Vallejo and Ms. Sena. She recently brought us this blog post addressing the ethics in our chosen profession—the great world of public relations in its various forms.
As in many other fields, there are some bright lines that we dare not cross. Then there are those ethically grey areas. Yes (!)—there can be ethically grey areas, not everything is easily placed on a black or white square. These usually pop up when our own ethical rules for various areas of our life (personal and professional) come into conflict and we must step up and make the decision of what/which is most important to us.
