Thank you

A couple of weeks ago, I had the honour of receiving the CPRS Toronto Mentor of the Year award.

That meant a great deal to me. I have always believed that senior practitioners should share their knowledge, experience and networks with young people entering the profession.

There are many ways to do this including information interviews, lending your time to speak at PR programs (or grading resumes…), or signing up for the CPRS Mentorship program which pairs mentors and proteges. (I hate that word, but you can’t say ‘mentee’).

As I said that evening, I’ve been extremely fortunate to have met and had the opportunity to get to know some really smart and talented people including Kristen Marano, Parker Mason and Erick Bauer. And I truly feel I’ve learned as much or more from them than they’ve learned from me.

So… before I need a tissue, I’ll just close with a heartfelt thanks.

  1. Martin – It was a well-deserved award. You’ve done far more than share your knowledge to just your mentors, but to the Toronto PR community as well. Cheers,Parker
