At this time of year, it is common to look back over recent achievements and plan ahead to how we may dedicate our time and efforts in future.

What is normal? It is something that is usual, typical, standard, average, unexceptional, routine, predictable, to be expected. Normal is the way things are done, part of the fabric of society, everyday habits, the unnoticed, taken for granted, culturally embedded. It defines the benchmark against which everything else is measured. The middle of a normal … Continue reading Normal(image)

My proposal to undertake a PhD investigating Career Strategies in Public Relations at Bournemouth University was accepted in October 2009 – this week I was delighted to be told during my Viva (oral examination) that I would be awarded my … Continue reading PhD(image)

GriefHeather YaxleyoverhandknotLanguage of Griefbiopsychosocial

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 10:57:42 +0000

Nine years ago I experienced the depths of grief when my dad died. The words of the blogpost “A private tragedy” that I wrote then remind me of the immediate pain. I generally don’t acknowledge this “stop all the clocks” moment, when a solid knot was tied in the thread of my life. But I … Continue reading Grief(image)

SubmissionHeather YaxleyiPad Wallpaper - 02

When we talk about submitting an assignment or other piece of work, this verb is often viewed as a process, the action of uploading or physically presenting something for assessment.

Women have been marching and demanding a voice for over a century. Making the world see them. Making men see them. The … Continue reading Women(image)

Everyone is different. Everyone is the same. As professional communicators, should public relations practitioners focus on individual differences, segmenting people into chunks by age, gender, geographical location? Or categorise by attitude – friend or foe? Perhaps by behaviour – which way did you vote? Are you with us or against? Stephen Waddington directs PR practitioners … Continue reading Personality(image)
