When New Narrative invited me to discuss social media for personal branding for their newly launched platform I was excited and jumped at the chance. This was such a good podcast interview to undertake because it I was able to use my PR background to provide practical and pragmatic tips to creative university students / graduates. Podcast host Paula and I spoke about how creatives can use social media as part of their personal branding and what they can do to ensure that their social media trail makes a positive impact on their career trajectory. Social media has disrupted not only the media landscape but also the creative landscape, brands are communicating with their primary and secondary audiences very differently now from a few decades ago. Creatives with skills in photography, design, art, copyrighting etc now have to look at how they can navigate social media not just for their personal branding but also for their own content creation purposes. Creatives are finding work and business opportunities through social media but during the course of this conversation we also discussed why social media cannot be the only tactic used to network and build a career. I wanted to remind listeners, particularly university graduates that personal branding is not as scary as it sounds. At its core, personal branding is about always keeping an eye on ones keys goals and being authentic whilst also being wise in pursuit of success. Tune in and share your own thoughts!

I really enjoyed this conversation with Phillipa Chikwedze on her Let’s Chat Comms podcast series. Aside from getting the chance to discuss my business journey we talked about all things PR, Communications, Crisis and social media. What I particularly enjoyed about recording this interview was the authentic energy between Phillipa and I. Whilst we have had different journeys within public relations we have had some similar experiences and perspectives particularly as Black women in the industry so it was really good to be able to have an open and honest conversation on this dynamic new platform. I am really passionate about encouraging more Black women to be visible in the industry and whilst this isn’t a conversation specifically about our experience as Black women it indicates how much we bring to the proverbial table and how much we can offer each other and the wider industry.
Let’s Chat Comms is a communications focused podcast platform on which Phillipa interviews individuals in public relations, working in a variety of sectors for an insight into their roles and their career journeys. I hope this podcast series makes an impact across the industry and gives listeners an insight into the PR industry in a relevant and relatable way.
I thoroughly enjoyed this honest and open conversation with systematic coach Zita Tulyahikayo on her podcast, The Life Therapy with Zita Podcast. We really dug deep and had a conversation that genuinely looked beyond the superficial. We spoke about life, love, family, our ancestors, womanhood and so much more. We spoke about our inner power and how we manifest that power in our lives. This is a raw conversation with so much passion and as you’ll hear when you listen I had so many moments of vulnerability and truth.
