»Posted by on Jun 12 2017

Public relations is a deceptively large field. At its core is the requirement that practitioners communicate on behalf of a brand, company or general group of people to a specific audience.

Before the movie was released, some Hollywood insiders predicted an Oscar snub because of the subject matter of 'American Sniper'... that it wouldn't appeal to left-leaning Academy voters. Fox News contacted me after the nominations were announced and I said that timing of this movie aligned perfectly with world events t...

The PR offensive by former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi

»Posted by on Oct 28 2014

It hit Facebook and it spread like wildfire. Not surprising, really. It was a status update from a celebrity opening up about what some might consider his kinky sex life. The confession was from Jian Ghomeshi, the once uber popular CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) host of "Q." Jian Ghomeshi is adept at asking questions that trigger celebrities to open up. But up until now, he never talked publicly about his private life, particularly his sex life. But Jian Ghomeshi, 47, did just t...
