Opinion: From our Readers - PROs should be bossy, nosy and opinionated

Academic research is always welcome and the results of the Bournemouth study should be fascinating (News, 16 October).

However, I have always stressed to all my employees that the mark of a good PRO is to be nosy, bossy and opinionated. Nosy: we must know our client, its customers and its competitors better than it does. Bossy: as PR experts, we should be in a position to challenge all client requests. Opinionated: clients commission us for our insight, counsel and opinion. If PR is about reputation management, then opinion is king.
