PR Week welches…

Anyone remember this little exchange from our comments a few weeks back?

PRWeek said...
Never a magazine to let its most avid and committed readers down we’d love to invite the mysterious World’s Leading… blogger to the world’s leading PR awards in the UK. A couple of questions – to whom do we address the invitation? And how will we recognise you when you turn up?
Also, do you have any allergies?

....the world's leading.... said...
How very kind of you...don't worry about posting it - just leave it marked to The World's Leading behind reception down there at Haymarket Publishing and we'll have someone pick it up...let us know when is convenient.

We'll be wearing a dinner suit...or pehaps a frock. It's so difficult to decide.

No special dietary requirements.

3:33 PM

Well, it’s taken us a few weeks, but this morning we sent our trusty messenger down to 174 Hammersmith Road…into the reception of Haymarket Publishing…and guess what? Nothing. Nada. Zip. Absolutely bugger all in the way of small packages for The World’s Leading.

How very disappointing.

Anything to say, PR Week?

Perhaps someone has purported to be TWL and picked up the package? This could add to the confusion of the identity of Ms TWL

Or perhaps our beloved PRW is just so poorly organised it hasn't got round to it. Piss up in brewery anyone?

That's exactly what I did :-)
Don't worry TWL, I'll have great fun & post a comment to let you know all about it.

....the world's leading.... said...

Brilliant! Well done, very enterprising...we look forward to hearing all about it.

Hope you didn't buy a frock specially for it TWL - no-one likes to see a girl all dressed up with nowhere to go...

PRWeek said...

The ticket was there but as PRWeek Awards passes are more valuable than Willy Wonka's golden tickets, we can't just hand them out willy nilly. We'd need full passport ID for the person attending the event, for our carefully-designed seating plan.
In any case our reception has reported no such enquiry from anyone wearing a tuxedo or evening gown, as you suggested.

And the funniest thing?

Watching PR Week squirm and try desperately to find out the identity of "The Worlds Leading" becuase everyone is reading their blog these days instead of PR Yawn, which has had a monopoly for *far* too long...

With love, Truth Not Spin

Blimey TnS - where was the squirming from PRW? Am i reading the wrong blog?

Or should you perhaps be called Spin Not Truth?
