You would be forgiven for thinking that a PR agency is a PR agency, no matter the industry or area, and this is true to a certain extent. However, there are many different types of PR to consider: B2B PR (business-to-business) B2C PR (business-to-consumer) internal, public affairs, crisis management, publicity… the list goes on! And while many of the necessary skills are transferrable, moving between these areas can mean big changes.
The risk of a cyber-attack can never be 100% eliminated in a digital world, but it can be minimised and planned for.

So how has 2021 started for everyone- or do we dare ask?! We normally post our review of the previous year in the first week of January but we got sidetracked with lots of planning meetings and no shortage of exciting client announcements to kick start the new year. We’ve also been interviewing lots of great people for our growing team of technology PR and content specialists at Comit and we’ll have good news to share on that front soon.
We are exposed to the fruits of public relations every single day, in every medium -- TV, newspapers, radio, on social media, and in magazines. It’s a growing industry. Never before have so many people and businesses been in the public eye. However, despite views to the contrary, not all PR is good PR!
A year ago, I decided that after 17 years in broadcast journalism working for Newstalk and RTÉ among others, it was time for a change. I still had a passion for media but wanted to broaden my horizons and deploy my skills in a new environment.
