Have you got news for us?

Another chance to attend the fabulous workshop on PR for small business run by my PR Louise Third of Integra Communications and Daily Express Business Columnist Maisha Frost...

It's at the British Library Business Centre on 11 December 2008 from 5pm to 7.30pm and costs £47.50 + VAT.

Well worth going along for the secrets of how to promote your business inexpensively through the power of PR - my favourite form of marketing!

It seems to me that Louise has done an excellent job to help Rachel rebuild her image.

It seems to me that when an entrepreneur takes a big hit that their energies wain and their identity takes a bit of a nose dive.

PR plays an important role in rebuilding the confidence of the entrepreneur by bringing out all the best things about them. Its a kind of self-realization exercise too, so PR specialists are not simply marketers - but psychologists as well.

I am looking forward to seeing where Rachel goes from here.
Judging by then competition and the changing political/economic/social climate i believe that there is a much bigger role for Rachel in the future.

Don't know what - Just know!

What a shame I have something else booked for that day/night.

"I am looking forward to seeing where Rachel goes from here."

Up, Up, Up, Up, it is really the only place Rachel can go, there is no skies the limit with a Charasmatic inspirational Lady such as Rachel.

Stephen, I must say you seem to be in a very good/jokey mood today, have you found the same pills as mine?

Stephen said...

No one can get hold of the kind of strong pill you use DLOG. ha!

No, i don't know. Maybe some good things might happen in the future.

Get some people sorted etc.

See how it goes DLOG... See you again before Christmas.

TheDLOG said...

Stephen,

"Maybe some good things might happen in the future".

Um, NO, NOT MAYBE, the phrase you are looking for is,
"some good things WILL happen".

Take particular note of the word WILL.

And NO, this is not a Mr A Dragon lesson. God bless his heart!!

I am totally disgusted in you all, call yourselves good business people of so called intelligence.
Ms Elnaugh with the red hair does not even spare a second to remember the millions that have died in WW1/2 - and current.
Today is Armistace day and not one comment.

Well business people are all about themselves truly and this proves it, having read rachels book it oooozes with "Self Self Self"
I hope u all are upset with yourselves.

I let my Dad march for me since he was a real soldier in Korea in the 50's. He remembers the second world war as he was about 8 at the time it started.

I always listen to the stories he tells me about running around the hills of Dover, picking up live amo and throwing it off the cliffs. A real tearaway! And he and his dad who was a naval commander were there at Dunkirk too. Helping the poor lads off the beach and they still got out and marched through Dover. Half of them couldn't even walk. Some were even on their knees, women crying at the roadside.

And he told me that they used to place telegraph polls on the cliffs to make it look like there were more guns aiming out into the channel and to stop the Germans from thinking of invading.

It is strange that probably the worst atrocity in the last 100 years still creates many happy memories in the older generation.
It seemed like there was a purpose, unity and determination to fight and to share.

I can only imagine what it must have been like.

I assure you I have spent today in quiet contemplation and sadness not just of wars past and present, but also of a 17 month old baby (not much older than my Jack), tortured and abused by his parents and left to die with a broken ribs & spine, fingernails ripped off, torn earlobe, battered and abused.

So, so, much unnecessary suffering in this sad fucked world of ours.

Same here Rachel, It is heartbreaking to think of those young soldiers then and now, and the endless cruelty inflicted on helpless babies and children. It is unbearable to think that no one was there to protect a young baby.

Stephen thank you for the link, I will take a look.

This is the problem with waking up to the real world - it causes rage and there is no where for that rage to go - but inwards, causing many people to have depression, panic and anxiety attacks and all that kind of stuff.

The more passionate you are the worse it becomes.

So i guess we must learn to channel it in some way. Into new positive, constructive projects and to suffocate the stupid and corrupt with a relentless tied of great entrepreneurial initiatives.

To drown out the silence and inaction that stands by when injustice occurs.

Anonymous, what the hell are talking about, how do you know that any one on here did or does not respect those who died for their country.
I suggest you get your facts together first before you start throwing your accusations around, but then, same old same old with you anonymice isn't it, have not got the balls to be known but happy to accuse, get a life, how do you know how others are feeling, how do you know the loss of others, you don't is the simple answer.

And another thing, I felt phisicaly sick when I heard the news of that baby, even more so this morning listening about it more on LBC, brought a tear to my eye. It is absolutely sickening that a baby/child can be abused in this way, why oh why must this happen.
For God sake go take your anger out on a punch bag in the gym or something, not on a defenseless baby/child, what have they done to anyone, all they do is smile and chuckle, pure and innocent.
And yes, have to admit that Rememberance Sunday did actually bring a tear this year for the first time.

Re:Ms Elnaugh with the red hair

This anonymous sounds like a sicko to me.

TheDLOG said...

Funny you say that Stephen, I was wondering why he/she came out with that comment, I mean, what's the Red Hair got to do with anything, weird bastard.

See you tomorrow Hani!

Oh, and by the way, I'm still happy, not quite as buzzing as Friday, but happy.

Oh Anonymous - what's up? What does this prove exactly?
Not every one wears their heart on their sleeve you know? Perhpas you should read the prayer of St Ignatius which will have been read out a few times during the rememberance celebrations -
Teach us good Lord to serve thee as thou deservest...to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for any reward etc...
Rachel is not a politian looking for a photo opportunity. I am sure like all of us she remembered in her own way and is thankful for the people who gave their lives to keep us free...

Absolutely Anne, Rachel/we, all have our own way, why does one have to be public about our feelings and sincerity.
Or perhaps anonymous you would like the world to be a Greek Tragedy, tears for all to see, some of us like to be private in our thoughts and grievances.

Did God demand of us otherwise?

Sincerity & emotions are from the Heart within.

By a bizarre coincidence I have just come home from an alcoholic meeting with my PR agency...

A good PR person is worth their weight in vodka (the currency of all the PR people I've ever met). They may seem a bit detached from reality at times but they do work magic on occasions.

Fortunately I don't need personal PR as I prefer anonymity. That way I get to screw up in private!

C, "You look like some consigliere!"

I am, that is why I have to keep a little conspicuous, I can't afford to compromise myself!!

Ahh, you like a drop of Vodka eh, same here, once went to Denmark for a couple of days, stopped off in a bar for a quick bite, ended up leaving about 12pm, after sampling every flavoured Vodka they had on offer, lovely!!

Another good place for a drop or 2 of Vodka is Prague, the entertainment is not bad either!!
