Why PR Professionals Are Some of the Most Educated People on the Planet

Why PR Professionals Are Some of the Most Educated People on the Planet

This year, I became intimately informed about financial fraud and how it impacts charter schools. Last year, I learned how clinical trials are conducted and what it takes to get a medical device from the drawing board to the operating room. I also learned about infrared and low-level red light therapy and how they help repair damaged cells in the human body. Over the past several years, I became an expert in smart growth principles for cities and towns, the benefits and pitfalls of child welfare systems, and how entrepreneurs and executives think and act to be successful. And that’s just a sampling of my education.

I’ve been a student all my life. It didn’t end after formal schooling and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon. You see, I’m a public relations professional and the owner of a PR firm, and if we who have chosen this career want to survive we have to learn a great deal about the many fields in which our clients operate.
