Beauty – and the business

12 Oct

Copies of the latest issue of Behind the Spin are being distributed this week to universities with approved PR degree courses and to CIPR student members.

So work starts now on issue 15, to be published in February 2007. As guest editor, I’m inviting proposals on the following themes:

  • Public relations in the beauty industry (fashion, cosmetics etc)
  • The public relations consultancy business

Alternatively, you’re welcome to submit any articles of interest to our PR student readership. Please email suggestions to r[dot]s[dot]bailey[at]leedsmet[dot]ac[dot]uk. Contributions are welcome from students, recent graduates, practitioners and lecturers. Our print distribution is limited to the UK, but the Behind the Spin blog has extended the reach and we welcome English language contributions from other countries.

    As a recent graduate of the PR course at the Met I would be happy to submit a piece for the magazine. I’m currently working for a small consultancy in Harrogate primarily involved in corporate and B2B accounts.
    Let me know if you would like me to contribute.

    Mark: thank you for responding. I hope you will write for the magazine – perhaps contrasting your work for a small consultancy with your work (on placement) for a corporate communications team.
    Karen: We’re a UK magazine at present because we’re supported financially by the London-based Chartered Institute of Public Relations. But it’s a handsome publication, and we have great aspirations for it ….

    Agreed. BtS is a great PR resource. Would be great to see an online multimedia version.
    But that’s just the geek in me. 🙂

    Funny, I was talking to the BTS editor just the other day about the possibility of a ‘proper’ online version…would be nice, wouldn’t it….
