Alex is a visiting lecturer at London City and advises that budding journalists spend more time listening and researching and less time broadcasting on social; you’ll hear how Alex overcame his smartphone addiction through posture theory and boundary setting, and why the PR industry is critical, when relevancy is made the priority.
