Miniscule things matter the most in the communications world.  The things we take for granted as common sense are to be put in black and white to the last letter.  I learnt these basics during the course.  The ever new and hands- on curriculum was a great motivator to get up every Sunday morning and rush for the class.  Overall, it was a great experience and my Sundays were Fundays due to the course and the group.  I would recommend this course to freshers to understand the working of communication world and to the experienced seniors to refresh and hone their skills.

My experience has been very enriching and I would recommend this program for all – not just people from the media and PR backgrounds because of the simplicity yet indepth knowledge provided. The best part of this program was the age-range of participant from 18 to70! And all participated in the sessions which were very interactive, followed by a critical analysis of all participants aimed at constant improvement in their communication skills. A very well-rounded, short and sweet yet comprehensive program, followed by individual assessment by coordinators suggesting a future course of action in the quest of attaining excellence in a rewarding career and lifelong benefits!

Overall experience of the PR and Media Mgmt Program was very educative. The basics that one requires to be armed with, when one is thinking of getting into the PR or CorpComm field, were very clearly and succinctly taught. Also, the assignments and projects, along with the overall class discussions helped a lot in shaping the mindset towards the job requirements. Overall, the modules and the assignments helped a great deal in giving us an idea of what is expected and how one is supposed to go about dealing with them!

Primecorp99 is an excellent institution for professionals who are serious about a career in PR. The course I enrolled for was a great foundation course and was an incredible learning experience. As an advertiser, I was aware of PR but the course gave me a deeper understanding of the subject and broadened my horizons. The course contents could clearly differentiate between PR, Journalism and Advertising. Seasoned and highly experienced faculty made the learning experience more interactive and interesting. Must say Primecorp99 is a great initiation by Press Club of Mumbai and highly recommended for those who wish to pursue PR as a career.

“Excellent” is a lesser word for the knowledge gained by the course. The content and the presentation of the course should be termed as the strength. I would like to thank The Press Club of Mmbai to have given such a wonderful opportunity to me to learn and excel as a communicator. A note of thanks for Ms. Anahita for being the best teacher of my life! God Bless and Jai Hind!

When asked to speak about my experience in the Press Club I couldn’t think of a better chance than this to thank my class co-ordinator Ms. Anahita Subedar, who has been my support and strength all throughout our classes and even post that.  I was in the June batch 2013 for 3 months. Even though I thought the price was a bit much for the course, by the end of it I realised each penny was worth the sessions. More than the material provided to us the whole experience of being in the class, participating in debates and developing a sense of confidence really helped me open up and put my point across. This was the institution where I learnt my core of PR and media management. 

Our assignments post class consisted of preparing press releases, press notes, press invites, and profile of a company and an individual. This covered most of the facets that one needed to start pitching for a project or a person. I was also taught crisis management. The knowledge and examples that were given to us were factual and relevant. This helped me grasp the information faster as I could relate to it.

There are 4 main aspects that I learnt in the press club to be a successful publicist. One was to respect DEADLINES!! In real life situations I realised the importance of submitting or pitching a story to a newspaper journalist. Even a day late would make me lose the coverage. During the events that I handled we stayed up till 4 in the morning just to do the post event respecting the deadlines.  

Second thing I learnt was how to be an assertive speaker. I came across as an aggressive speaker in our group discussions and debates. But over a period of time and through the proactive feedback of the class co-ordinator I spoke less aggressively and more assertively.

The third most important thing was the assignment given to us. It was to make our own media list. We were all asked to make the Media List of the beats that we wanted to handle PR for. That assignment in itself was extremely fruitful for me. When I joined my first company I handled the media relations of a Pop Star, Vasuda Sharma, who was travelling to all cities performing the tracks of her new independent album.

I had to directly get on it without any delay to make the most my time given to attain maximum coverage for her. The media list made it extremely convenient and easy to get her quality coverage. With this I learnt that this assignment in future makes you an asset of the company as most of the work is done based on the media list.

The last and the most crucial aspect was to read the paper every day. Every time in class the first 15 minutes were spent discussing the trending topics and top stories of the day/week. That discussion not just helped me with more information, it also helped me understand or encounter different opinions and outlooks of people. 

Lastly I would like to mention that no matter how many degrees one achieves in Mass Media, they can get it right only if they know the core of Public Relations and do real time assignments. This course is a foundation and a stepping stone to all the aspiring professionals. My journey there was wonderful and an experience of a lifetime.
