Wow! It’s been almost seven (7) years since I e-met and have been working with Nigeria’s PR guru Bobby Taylor. She was first based in Canada when we met and later relocated to Nigeria. I remember her from the eLDee days all the way to D’Banj and M.I Abaga and of course to present. Her other clients have included MAC Cosmetics,The Walt Disney Company, Osas Ighodaro, WOWe Conference, Flying Doctors Nigeria, The O Twins, EbonyLife Television, Arise Magazine Fashion Week, and Fela On Broadway (Nigeria).
As she recalls her story on the Nkiru Asika owned Enterprise Creative ‘My Journey’ segment, it feels like I am walking down memory lane again with her. Those were fun and exciting times for all online and with social networking sites and new media.
To date, she remains one of the go to persons I always begin my PR referral base with for Americans and Africans looking to work with a PR company in Nigeria. Her professionalism and overall follow through, at least based on my experience in working with her, remains unmatched. Also, when there are glitches, as there always is in this business of ours, she doesn’t hide from it or pretend it doesn’t exist. She takes it head on and resolves it diplomatically, an essential quality for any Publicist.
Watch the video, it time well spent. Bobby has become even more seasoned and confident in her craft and I like what she has to say about the future of public relations in Nigeria.
