E-Book in a Day – The Day So Far!

When I walked into Solent Creatives, Catherine Sweet was most certainly correct when she told me; ‘Welcome to the mad house!’

The second and third year PR & Communications students have already been working on their E-Book in a Day Project for four hours and it’s proving stressful, but successful (mainly to do with 45 people over-loading the wifi!). With motivation from CIPR President, Stephen Waddington, Richard Berry and Catherine Sweet, I’m excited to see how it turns out!

Each team is in charge of a chapter of the E-Book and have to write 1000 words and include images and references. Here’s a bit about what the various teams have been up to so far;

Networking;

Connecting with former PR students to find out where they are and what they’re doing in their careers now.

Co-Creation;

Engaging students and employers via Twitter about PR interns.

Curation;

Reaching student bloggers and invite them to write about The Future of PR

Gamification;

Setting up a live treasure hunt exploring recognition, competition and rewards.

Crowdsourcing;

Working with CIPR Wessex group members to decide criterion for PR Student of the Year and attracting entries.

Visual Mash-up;

Building assets, a network and engaging PR practitioners to create a visual expression of PR

Face to Face;

Interviewing practitioners via Google Hangout and Skype about their careers and the future of PR

Measurement;

Integrating an AMEC valid metrics measurement framework as a planning and measurement tool for each chapter and the overall book.

Steve Waddington, Catherine Sweet & Solent PR Students hard at work!

All around the room, there is people rushing around, people with their heads buried in their laptops or their phones yet a lot of motivational talk! Keep it up!
