On 5 May 2016, I had the privilege of attending my first PRISA JumpStart Breakfast session, which was held at Joe Public United. 

Jumpstart is for young professionals who represent the public relations and communication management industry.  This platform is there to assist millennials to network, learn, share ideas, ask questions, and discuss opportunities and challenges faced as young professionals. 

Relevant topics pertaining to our daily tasks were addressed by thought leaders, one being Keri-Ann Stanton, managing director, Engage Joe Public. 

She highlighted the importance of what we do and why we do it,
bringing about a realisation that our jobs are not just jobs, love and passion are required in everything we do.

Guest speaker Mpumelelo Zingitwa, marketing manager at FNB for Ebucks, addressed the topic: "How to make your boss really need you”.  He emphasised the need to fly at an even higher altitude with the right attitude.

I had an amazing first time experience at this event. It was a great youth-driven environment and I met exceptional practitioners excelling in the industry. I look forward to many more Jumpstart events and I am glad to have taken the right step to JumpStart my career. 

I recommend these events to all millennials.
Invest in yourself, Invest in your future.
