After being a keen follower of the #PowerAndInfluence discussions, hosted by PR-superstar Ella Minty, for a while - I was so pleased when I was asked if I'd like to host one.

Looking Back On My First PR Work-Iversary
Today is my work-iversary at Tecmark. 12 months ago to the date, I was a timid (and not afraid to admit it) final year student walking through the doors of Portland Street for the very first time.
