Austin talks to Claire about the importance of honest consultancy (certainly not a given in the PR industry) and why “giving it to clients straight” is vital.

He also explains why KPI setting by “number of interviews” or “number of coverage clippings” is redundant and why he feels there is a need for a more strategic approach.

Austin has been with Firefly for almost two years and previously worked at other agencies in London and Bath, Somerset.

  1. Very insightful interview by Austin Brailey!! Very well media trained 🙂

  2. Very well thought out and eloquently put – what a young gun rising star in PR!

  3. I 100% agree about not working in a silo. You achieve the best business results for clients when you’re seen as an extension to the marketing team
