I so agree with this post. I AM one of those nervous students! I'm totally happy opining all over the internet via blogs, social networking sites etc, but I'm useless interacting with real people. Maybe I don't have the confidence to be in this business, or maybe I just need practise! Im currently looking at different PR 'bods' to get some inspiration on how to get out there and think outside the box (ie the computer) a bit more. One of the people i have found quite inspiring is Mark Borkowski - i like his stunts/PR pranks etc, and the personal touch his company seems to have...and his new book The Fame Formula about PR and fame looks interesting - we may all get a few pointers.
Anyone, to not ramble on too much, just wanted also to say how useful i find your posts - keep it up!
