The Crimes of Grindelwald at Showcase Cinema

“After all this time?” said Dumbledore, “Always,” replied Snape. I am a Potterhead. I’ve loved the story since my Aunt bought me the book back when it was first released and I still love it now.

The new films in the Fantastic Beasts series are no exception, and I like many other Harry Potter fans have been very excited about the new film.

I’m not sure my first impression of PR was very good at all in fact, oh how the tide has turned!

This program certainly wasn’t my inspiration behind going in to PR, that came much later, but it was an early introduction of some sorts. It made me wonder how other people discovered PR, what their first views of it were and what inspired them to then go in to PR. If you feel like sharing (because sharing is caring!) pop me a comment about your very first introduction to public relations.
