The show is all about the real challenges and opportunities in business and my own industry, public relations. Laura Sutherland interviews a range of senior business owners and execs demonstrating that although we face challenges, we can overcome them. It aims to give listeners hope! The name of the show comes from the fact that by building relationships, we build trust and we end up 'buying' from people - that's why it's so important brands have purpose, values and a relatable personality. It's relatable content and often with a laugh thrown in for easy listening.

Laura chats to Paul Sutton about integrated public relations and the lack of diverse skills
Both Paul and I were 'brought up' in integrated public relations. It's always been the norm.As the PESO model was much discussed a number of years ago, the PR industry has been slow to adapt, modernise and it lacks the diversity of thinking and skills (as well as its people), which would enable it to stand up to the big brother, marketing function.In addition, I wanted to ask Paul why in his last podcast, Gini from Spin Sucks, thought PR was dying, according to a recent report in the US.Tune in to find out all the chat, and please don't forget to leave a review and some feedback.
