Monday 26th November saw a gathering of Lincoln Alumni from the Lincoln School of Journalism talking about life in the real world, post Lincoln Uni. For the first time they were joined by a Public Relations Alumni. Amy Hackett sat in the middle of an all male journalism panel, next to the evening’s compere Sam Pidoux – female but a journalist nonetheless!
Amy was able to shed light on life on the ‘dark side’ and gave a great insight into her work on PR formerly in the NHS and Local Government and now at Bishop Grosseteste University College her in Lincoln.
Afterwards we retreated to Nandos for some well earned sustenance and banter. During the evening an idea germinated for a networking group around communications in Lincoln – particularly for the growing number of alumni working locally and also to introduce other communications professional into the mix…watch this space!
The next panel will be in February and hopefully more of you will be there to hold the banner for PR!
