Orange Academy's school fees are thirty thousand Naira. Money very well spent, i might add.
I don't know what you do but if you can take out 6 weeks and come to lagos for the course, you will definitely not regret it. I guarantee that if you have even the slightest bit of creativity in your body, you will be snapped up by an ad agency once you graduate. Think about it. Outside that, i'm all out of ideas on how you can get tht training in Abuja.
for you to know I've really been searching, I've already gotten in touch with Orange, spoke to a chap named Stanley. Their next course is not till February and I understand it's a six week course. Perfect, çept that it's in Lagos and I don't live in Lagos. other ideas Lawyer, pleassse?

I wouldnt mind if you enlighten me on what you do in PR apart from meeting people and convincing them or selling your ideas to them in order to improve the cooperate and over all financial image of your institution or your brand
what else is PR?
sure am not a practioner
but may be you need to read about what happens in capitol hill to understand what am talking about
you know here people see lobbying as a negative thing as they equate it to bribery (which is not the case)
think broader than the nigerian context if you are in PR and you hope to someday make it BIG TIME
when bills are passed in US congress or senate, what do you think happen over there?
except if you are seeing PR in a small persepective of only cooperate "image washing" and forget about what follows after the washing
Good luck practioners but better explain to your apprentice the whole details start to finish even if it is the responsibilty of another person to play the other part of the game.
I think you need enlightenment on what PR is all about. Its not only smiling and opening of teeth as you think of it. It is all about Image making and reputation management [i][/i]of a company.
There is no professional that can do without it.
Is it a Doctor
or even you
I advise you go for a course in it, and you will Know what it is all about.
I HOPE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING INTO?
PR sounds so sweet but surely there is more to it that meets the eye
do you have the mind for it
dont thinks its just smiling with an open teeth
i wish you well but look before you leap
AMERICANS PREFER TO GIVE IT A BETTER NAME "LOBBYING" so that you know what you are going into
but here its something else with the BEAUTIFUL NAME "PR"
good luck man
