Has PR become a profession of talkers. Maybe it's time to adapt our skill set and become makers. 

What do you think?

I suggest all sorts of great books, even a harlequin romance, find out why by listening in!
 
Episode 17 is out!

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and we are all enjoying a nice cold drink on a patio somewhere around the world. School is out, work has slowed down, and it is time to catch up on that reading list. What are you going to read this summer to help you build and advance your career?

+Kristine Simpson and Julia Kent, hosts of Young PR Pros, thought they would share with you their suggestions of excellent books for young professionals and communicators alike.

Image skating around an oval track at high speeds, now image doing it without you sight or your hearing... That is Kevin Frost's life in a nutshell. But you can learn more. Mayfair Theatre is showing a premier of a documentary called Blind Ambition, a story that follows Kevin on his journey. 

All ticket proceeds will go to help Kevin and other visually impaired speed skaters. 

Thanks!
 
Ladies and gentlemen get your popcorn ready!

On October 18, 2012, local filmmakers premiere the story of an Ottawa athlete that surpassed all odds to become the number one blind speed skater on short and long track in the world. Kevin Frost, a local deaf-blind athlete, invites you to join him at the Orleans Mayfair Theatre where Algonquin College alumnus, Pat Decelles, showcases Blind Ambition, the life of Kevin, a struggling athlete trying to make a difference in the world of Paralympic speed skating.

For the price of a regular movie, you will be taking part in a movement that will further help speed skating get one step closer to becoming a sanctioned Paralympic sport. You will be helping Kevin and other visually impaired and blind athletes across Canada fulfil their dreams of going to the Paralympics for speed skating.
