Below: The conversation with Matt Cartmell that resulted in a story in PR Week last Thursday. The issue goes much deeper than the story suggested, and because much of my argument centres on the issue of misrepresentation, I do not believe that the PRCA’s response that the membership numbers speak for themselves is a strong one. I’d love to hear feedback from others in the industry though, as I know there are agencies that believe they get a great deal, and others who feel differently. By @TopLineFounder (HB).

@Adam_Ketterer caught up with Francesca James (@FrancescaaJames), editorial on Fresh Business Thinking and techbubbles, who was kind enough to speak about her publications. Pitching PRs take note: informed, informative content is welcome, but don't expect the publication to come up with all the creative angles for you; that's your job too. Oh, and get the name right *triple checks spellings*.
