Audio comment: Gary Schlee on what you think PR grads should know

A big time oops. Long story, but Centennial College PR instructor Gary Schlee‘s comment got left out of IPR 62 this week. We’re including it on the blog if you’d like to have a listen and help him out with the answer to his question:  “If you had a direct influence on public relations education, what would be one or two things you’d want graduates to know or be able to do?”

Gary’s got a post on his blog about how Ontario’s PR educators are getting together for the first time and he plans on bringing up your suggestions when he meets with his colleagues on June 11.
