February 28, 2006
I am getting a bit sick with the organisers of the 2006 PR Week Corporate Comms conference.
I registered for the relevant day a few weeks ago and have since received about 3 emails still trying to get me to sign up for a conference I have already registered for.
I have also now just received an email asking whether I would like to register for the 2nd day (which is not relevant to me)
Haynet – please back off. You have my business (for now).
I would add this to the list of "bad marketing efforts". It certainly undermines the idea that the conference is about effective communications – the effort seems pretty bloody poor at the moment.
Contrast with the Changing Media Summit – they acknowledge the registration, send me an info pack and guide for the day – and that's it. Perfect.
When interviewing notable academic for 25 minutes ensure that the recording device is RECORDING and not stuck on pause.
There's been a lot of talk recently about changing road signs from Miles to Kilometres to bring us line with the rest of Europe for the 2012 Olympics.
Sounds like a load of rubbish to me.
If we're doing road signs, why not other things – which songs would the EU like to see brought up to metric standards?
The Who – I can see for kilometres and kilometres and kilometres
The Proclaimers – And I would walk 500 Kilometres
Someone else – I'd walk a million kilometres just for one of your smiles, Mammy
Just doesn't scan like 'miles'
