Being successful in my own right
Adam and Jon meet Ronke Lawal, founder of lifestyle agency Ariatu PR, mentor, and entrepreneur, about her journey from wannabe investment banker and economist grad to comms expert and small business owner. A mentor for The Cherie Blair Foundation, The “Success Looks Like You” Initiative and The BME Pros initiative, as well as a mentor to entrepreneurs and creatives outside of structured initiatives, Ronke also discusses her feelings and experiences of racial diversity in PR and marcoms, and how the industry can - and must - do better.  Also, following our recent chat with Carrie Rose in the previous episode, we reveal which reality show you and our Twitters followers would like to take part in...

From Apprentice to SEO master
The dark art within a dark art! This time on The PR Hub Podcast, Adam and Jon speak with Carrie Rose, co-founder of SEO agency, Rise at Seven. The company is a little under a year old, but is already on an incredible trajectory of success with a trolley full of household brands (including one in an industry close to Jon's heart.) Carrie shares the story of Rise at Seven, why it's based in Sheffield and not the golden paved streets of London, how she nearly became an apprentice of Lord Sugar(!) and why search is increasingly at the core of more and more PR campaigns. As always, you can tweet the show @PRHub on Twitter, or Adam and Jon separately at @AdamTuckwell and @JonWilcox_. Carrie can be found on all social platforms @CarrieRosePR, and Rise at Seven is (shockingly) @RiseAtSeven. Please don't forget to subscribe to the show so you keep up to date with the latest episodes, and if you'd be so kind as to rate or review us on Apple Podcasts that would be... well, jolly nice.

The PR Hub Podcast: Darren Caveney, Founder, Comms2Point0
This time on The PR Hub Podcast, Adam and Jon discuss the recent social media mishap from Arsenal and Adidas, the decision by Edelman to pull out of a contract with the company behind the Trump camps in the United States following pressure from staff, and the very Brexit-like result of the pod’s debut poll on whether public relations is a profession… or an industry. The duo speak with Darren Caveney, founder of PR resource site Comms2Point0 and co-founder of ‘the public relations equivalent of Woodstock’, the CommsUnplugged Festival. Finally, they highlight a couple of events happening next month. Oh, and we discover Adam’s London-based football club of choice (hint: it’s not Arsenal. Or Chelsea. Or any team in the Premiership).

Oh no, we didn't get an episode of the pod out in June! Never fear, because episode four of The PR Hub Podcast is finally here.

Finally, they point out a couple of key PR events happening on both sides of the Atlantic over the coming weeks. If you have a story you'd like us to discuss, tweet @PRHub.
