Challenging times for us all

Like most event organisers, all of us at Frolic PR were disappointed to hear this afternoon's announcement that indoor events with over 100 people are now banned until further notice. It's a bitter blow, even if we did know it was coming.  Frolic PR is a...

Punctuality equals professionalism

We’ve had several incidences so far this year – personal and professional – where people have arrived late or not at all for meetings and events. The latecomers bustle in, out of breath, some apologetic but others not at all fazed. The people who don’t come at all...

Business lessons

Business lessons

Someone asked me the other day what the biggest thing I’d learned in my first year of business was. It was a tough question! My journey so far has been littered with lessons and it’s hard to narrow it down to just one. But there are a few that stand out. I thought I’d...
