PR Week (21 April) reports that Imogen Bailey is joining Skype in a comms role. She’s no relation, so what’s the connection?
I hired Imogen to her first PR job when she was a new graduate in the early 1990s. (Sarah Howe used to tease me by telling friendly clients that Imogen was my daughter.) Since then, she’s gone on to greater things in the technology sector with Cisco, Edelman and, now, Skype.
This was around the time when I started to move in the direction of people development, training and education. It’s still what motivates me most, and why I’m happy to be a contributor to Forward where I write about jobs in public relations and trace the career journeys of PR graduates.
