In this first of our new monthly Spotted feature, we’ve asked MIPAA Student Associate member Darren Newman (who will be returning to complete his PR degree at Bournemouth University shortly) to look back at his placement as Press & PR Assistant at IM Group using three photographs.
“I’m Darren Newman and have been doing my placement year at Subaru and Isuzu. I’ve had a brilliant year and learnt so much, and feel the experience has been invaluable. I’m due to return back to Bournemouth University in September to complete my PR degree. I chose this picture from the recent AT35 photo shoot in Yorkshire. I think the AT35 is an absolute beast and perfect for off-roading as it can overcome any obstacle in its way.”
“The second photograph I’ve chosen if from the PR day from the Western Group of Motor Writers. This was a highlight of my summer. I felt like a kid in a sweetshop and got the opportunity to drive some of my favourite cars! After a taste in the Audi RS8 Spyder, Aston Martin and McLaren it gave me a taste for supercars! I didn’t want to leave!”
“Finally, I want to link to a recent Autocar article on the Audi RS3 saloon: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/audi/rs3/first-drives/audi-rs3-saloon-uk-2017-review I love the Audi brand. It is the gift that keeps on giving with the line-up of vehicles. The latest is the near 400bhp RS3 Saloon. It got me drooling and would like this to be my next car, and would love to be involved with it!” [Editor: That’s a not so subtle job hint!]
Spotted is a new monthly feature open to any MIPAA student associate member (current placement or undergraduate). The idea is to see motor industry PR/communications through the eyes of our younger members.
