Every year, former employees of my old PR shop Brodeur (A Plus) gather for a drink and a general catching up session. The 2007 event is due to be held in a few weeks time. Naturally, we have a Facebook group.
Looking at the member list, I'm reminded what a tremendous training ground Brodeur was back in the 1990s - the roll call of former employees now in top in-house PR and marketing positions reads like a who's who list of the IT industry: Accenture, AMD, Apple, BT, Cisco, Intel, Nortel, Oracle, Skype, Vodaphone, etc.
Not forgetting those who went off and set up their own PR businesses eg Rainier, Prompt Communications, etc.
Looking forward to hearing what the great and good of UK tech PR have to say on August 29th.
