Boston Media House to use Tiffany’s material

Published on by in Achievements, Articles, Blog.

As a former lecturer at Boston Business College Randburg (1999), on the topics of business English, journalism, PR and customer service, I was super-chuffed today when the HOD of Media Skills at Boston Media House requested permission to use my Bizcommunity articles as teaching resources. She says they’re ‘clever, funny and so very helpful’ (my articles – tho’ I’m pretty sure the students are too…). Fantastic. I may also guest lecture at BMH sometime in the future – one of my most favourite things to do: talk about freelancing – so watch this space.

  • The Uninformed (the client who has no idea what you actually do),
  • The Briefless (the client who has no idea what he wants) and
  • The Buddy (the client who wants to be your friend).

If any of these sound like clients you’ve had, have a read. And let me know what you think.
