Inside Red University

I have a secreTwittert addiction I’m going public with. I’m a Twitterholic. I get overly delighted when a post gets retweeted, favourited or someone I admire becomes a follower. Until now, I haven’t shared my Twitter obsession publicly. After attending Red University yesterday to hear from PR experts and learn valuable insights into the world of journalism from professionals in television, magazines and newspapers, I can now feel secure in knowing my Twitter addiction is actively shared and encouraged.

Red University is the forward-thinking initiative of integrated communications firm Red Republic which offers university students studying Communications, PR and Journalism the opportunity to gain inside knowledge of the real world of PR and journalism. In its second year, Red University delivers an intensive workshop focusing on taking the first steps into the industry, delivering and writing the perfect pitch and developing a personal brand to stand out from the crowd.
