    This is solid advice and commonsense, Valerie. Some of the brightest minds around at the minute are coming from the younger age group – I’m thinking people like David Spinks, Stuart Foster, Lauren Fernandez just to name a few.

    If PR is willing to open its doors to new mindsets, regardless of age or experience, we could see a much better and streamlined industry.

    Thanks for the views, and to Deirdre for giving you the mic.

    Thanks Danny! I very much agree with your thoughts on the value of voices from this younger generation. I tend to forget about ages on Twitter, as I mentioned to Lauren, David and others during the #u30pro chat last week. It has been said over and over that we are all “students” when it comes to the world of social media and I do believe that by bringing those in the classroom, and those practicing in the “real world,” together, we will all walk away a bit smarter!
