@cjlambert You’re assuming that the chain of command puts the external PR under the internal PR. C-suite [ugh!] often overrides.

@_LeonieGSmith Like you need sparkles and rainbows when you’ve got fags and bourbon. Bah.

I’m always amused when a company’s PR manager personally apologises for the antics of their external PR firm. Respect. [bows]
