I am in complete disbelief that we have finished our field trips for Crisis Communications… and finished our field trips in general for that matter. This trip has flown by in the blink of an eye, and we’ve had the opportunity to do some pretty awesome things! I was looking forward to visiting the ABI…

And that’s a wrap on our Public Speaking field trips. I cannot believe this trip is coming to an end and our time in London is winding down. But, what better way to finish off than with a Harry Potter walking tour AND Dream Girls the musical??? I am a MASSIVE Harry Potter fan, however…

For our third field trip we visited the Museum of Brands, Packaging, and Advertising along with The Churchill War Rooms. Week one, we visited the Imperial War Museum. I’ve always been a history buff and I’ve always been especially interested in war history. So this week, unfortunately being our second to last, I was so…

Our trip is at the halfway point. I am in absolute shock at the speed this trip has gone by. This week, we visited one of the number one places I wanted to see: The Tower of London. For me this site was very important because of all the history it holds. To my surprise,…

This week’s field trip was very British to say the least. I finally got to partake in afternoon tea and “scones.” To my surprise, I actually enjoy tea!! I’m still a solid #teamcoffee for sure but I’ll definitely go back to afternoon tea before I leave London. Although Dr. Groover described the British scones as…

On this week’s field trips, we visited the Science Museum and the V&A museum. At the science museum, we were given a section of the communication exhibit to do a project on. My group was assigned “the cell” which discussed the growth of cell phones and people’s desire to be able to “walk and talk”…

First I’d love to start by saying how I think it is absolutely amazing you can walk into the museums for free here. I think this is a great aspect of London that people should take advantage of and more places should offer. With that being said, we visited the Bank of England Museum. There…

Our first filed trip in London was Hampton Court Palace. Before visiting Hampton Court, I thought we were visiting just some old palace. Don’t get me wrong, I still thought it would be awesome by all means. Upon arrival I realized it was something much greater than just “some old palace.” I had no idea…

Re’Biana T https://rebianat.wordpress.com/2017/04/05/twitter-and-facebook-asset-or-liability-to-the-pr-profession/comment-page-1/#comment-14 I love your thoughts on this topic! I really enjoyed the example of you being a blogger and PR reps contacting you via social media to spread the word about their products. It just goes to show that social media is important in increasing brand/product awareness and popularity!

In some cases, social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook can be a liability. It is very important for companies to hire people who know how to properly use social media to said company’s advantage. I definitely believe that such sites are ultimately an asset to the public relations profession. Social media is such…

Response to Tara Hammock ¬†https://tarahammock.wordpress.com/2017/03/28/the-hard-life-of-trumps-media-adviser/ I absolutely agree with your points made about Trump’s Twitter. As someone who is so highly in power, he should act professional and not as carelessly as he does. He tweets things without even thinking about it and having someone in charge of that is beneficial and smart. I also…
