2009-11-11 by EPR Staff

Corri Fetman, the Chicago divorce lawyer who sued Playboy for an alleged sexual harassment, is now being sued in turn by the magazine. Fetman, noted for a racy billboard promoting divorce, appears to be fully qualified to stir up trouble if nothing else. This one has bad PR written all over it for both Playboy and Fetman Garland & Associates, the firm she is a partner in. According to Playboy, Fetman is trying to steal the phrase "Lawyer of Love" supposedly coined in an advice column she wrote for Playboy's website. Fetman also bared all for Playboy on top of...

BBC Worldwide

Restructure will see BBC Worldwide's PR operation report directly to the corporation's communications director, The Guardian reports. The decision comes as a measure to monitor the global impact of this operation on the BBC brand. None of the 160 PR staff employed by BBC will lose their jobs, and the cost of the restructure is reportedly "neutral." If we compare this strategic move to Forbes' recent layoffs, we can safely place a different company as "pack leader" for the "lights ahead media." Interestingly, BBC found a solution for its brand and its employees, where others failed. A restructure without job... Read More >

2009-10-23 by EPR Staff

When you think of breast cancer, chances are you think of menopausal women. While we've already addressed the fact that there needs to be a focus on younger women, as well, since they too can be at risk for cancer, another demographic that is completely ignored even during Breast Cancer Awareness Month is men. While men don't have breasts as a woman does, there is still breast tissue under those hard (or not so hard) pecs. And where there is breast tissue, there can be breast cancer. This is an issue that is all but forgotten in our focus on... Read More >

Using Social Media Better

We've been seeing a lot of campaigns to promote breast cancer awareness this month, but here's a fairly new one . . . #beatcancer.
