First of all, I hope you enjoyed and learned from Stephen Waddingon’s inspirational chat on Friday. He has posted the presentation on his Wadds PR Blog, and Level 1 student Nick Robinson talked about it on his Realityuniversityandcheck’s blog.

Before we hear your thoughts on the RSPB campaign, here’s a useful update on the social geography of the social media world.

Posted by mediations on May 7, 2010

We are delighted to welcome Stephen Waddington (@wadds) to speak to all PR students at 12noon today in the cinema.

You have spent weeks listening to me talk about social media and PR, now it is time to hear what it is really like from someone who acrtually does the job!

As well as being managing director of London-based Speed Communications and non-exec chairman of Newcastle’s Admiral PR, Stephen has just been appointed to the CIPR’s Social Media Panel,¬†and runs the must-read Wadds PR blog,

The slides look great, and I know a lot of people who speak highly of Stephen as a presenter. He is going to to talk about how the media is changing and will end with some top tips on how to get a job in PR.

We will be joined in the cinema by L1 and MA students. Please tell anyone you know who might be interested to come along – especially others doing PR but missing out on the joys of 299!
