Taking the Fear Out of Successful PR with Angharad Massie - 106

Feb 20, 2020


Made redundant from her dream PR job at 40, instead of becoming a victim to uncertainty and fear, Angharad Massie grabbed them by the horns and pulled them along in her wake. Now she owns Fearless PR and works for some of the biggest and littlest brands in the UK and Globally.

I asked her onto the Speaking Club to breakdown the myths and misunderstandings about what PR really is, so that you can begin to use PR as a tool to help you build your brand, spread your message and increase your impact. Angharad didn’t disappoint and shares brilliant strategies, tools and tips for creating your Fearless PR content, developing your network and influencing stakeholders to become advocates and fans.
