Two and a half years is a long time. In dog years, that’s a decade and a half – in PR years, at the rate things are moving, it’s almost certainly more. And in *tech* PR, God only knows – let’s say a century.
But anyway, a century ago I left AxiCom to join Debby Penton, Lorraine Jenkins and the team at Wildfire PR in search of somewhere I could learn, experiment with other ways of doing things and hopefully help a client or two along the way.
Since then, a lot has happened – most notably, the merger last year which created EML Wildfire, magnified the proposition and introduced a new, broader canvas for everyone involved. It’s a great place- growing, innovating and evolving while still remaining faithful to the kind of culture that makes an agency a pleasure to be part of.
But my part in that story is coming to an end – as of August 2012, I’m leaving the sanctuary of EML Wildfire to become an independent consultant.
Why? It’s a hard one to explain but I’m sure most people who have made the same leap probably have some sense of the curious gut feeling that propels it. I’ve reached a point where I want to experiment with the potential of applying an increased intensity of focus to a smaller range of projects – and I think I have exactly the kind of knowledge that companies need in their strategy today.
To understand more about what I’ve got planned, you have two options:
