Welcome to Open Access, a podcast from the London office of Access Brand Communications. We'll be discussing a wide variety of topics relating to PR, creativity, social media and whatever else we fancy. If you have any comments or if you'd like to join us for a discussion, please send us a tweet @AccessLon! Happy listening!
US PR vs UK PR
This week, we are joined by Evelyn Sprigg, a colleague from our US office, to talk about the differences between PR in the US and the UK. While we may speak the same language our approaches to media and office life can have some significant differences. Let us know what you think on Twitter @accesslon!
Hubris syndrome and leadership
Hubris syndrome - people who believe in their own self-importance and act as though different rules apply to them.
While this sounds like almost every politician, we also see it in the workplace. Amanda and Tinni discuss how hubris syndrome can affect leadership roles and raise some interesting insights around their own leadership styles. Eek!
Resilience in the workplace
It's Mental Health Awareness Week so this week's podcast is all about resilience in the workplace. How do you nurture a resilient workforce and what can you do if you're having a tough time yourself. Amanda Moulson and Tinni Guha Roy discuss resilience from both a personal and professional perspective. If you're interested in hearing more about self-care, we recorded a podcast last year around workplace culture and self-care - have a listen! http://bit.ly/2L7yMEu
Can you be good friends with your colleagues?
It will come as no surprise that Amanda and Tinni are friends outside work. What a shocker. This week they discuss how to navigate the tricky waters of friendships at work. Are they more of a hindrance than a help? Have a listen and tell us if you've been in a similar situation. We'd love to hear your experience! Tweet us at @AccessLon.
Intersectionality and feminism
It's International Women's Day so we have recorded a special podcast where we talk about intersectionality and feminism. Why don't we talk about feminism and diversity together? Why do we separate them as different issues to be tackled at different times.
The value of apprenticeships
It's National Apprenticeship Week, so we thought it would be a good time to chat with our very own apprentice, Nelli Szabo. Nelli talks through why she chose to do an apprenticeship, how she got into it and what she likes about it. We also speak with Amanda Moulson on the value of apprenticeships to businesses.
If you're interested in an apprenticeship at access, we have one role available. Apply now (deadline is 31st March 2018) --> http://bit.ly/2FnpvIb
