Sounds good to me...oh no, sorry, it doesn't...
Seen PR Darlings? A couple of people have brought it to our attention...one who said:
"Flyers were being given out at some talk that I was at the other day by a 9ft tall man who whispered conspiratorially to me ‘you in PR?’ then passed me the flyer like it was a fake passport in a POW camp."
Sounds like our sort of thing. But then on visiting the site it very much sounds not like our kind of thing. Here's the spiel:
"PR Darlings is where business meets pleasure. It isn’t about career networking. There are loads of places online and offline where you can do that. It’s about being able to socialise with people with whom you already have much in common. People in public relations are known to be creative, intelligent, on the pulse, attractive and most of all, fun.
"Why wouldn’t you want to hang out with them?
"PR Darlings is about making new friends, learning about people’s lives outside of work, going for a kick about, not taking your job so seriously, telling funny stories, laughing, banter and expanding your circle."
Not exactly sure I like the sound of expanding my circle...reminds me of my time doing porridge. I could have misunderstood, of course, but the next line makes me think otherwise:
"PR Darlings encourages you to put tongues in cheeks – yours, and if you fancy, someone else’s."
Honestly, that's what it says.
I dunno, might be just what the industry is looking for. You check it out and make your own minds up...and let us know, won't you?
