So no doubt we'll get plenty of stories about general drunkeness at press events...my personal best was a few years ago when the editor of one of the UK's two weekly network mags (now no more...the mag, that is) go so plastered that he vanished from the client event, leaving me holding his bag, jacket, wallet, phone....

We couldn't find him anywhere so left all his gear with reception at the venue (London's Cafe Royal). Only in the magazine's diary the following week did we find out that said editor had been found by a couple of London policemen and spent the night in Bow Street on a drunk and disorderly charge.

It's funny, he didn't have quite the same level of credibility with the client after the event...

  • Hmmm. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery I suspect.

    But BadPitch blog is run by two members of the public relations industry. And we are not anonymous, we are Kevin Dugan, APR and Richard Laermer, CEO of RLMPR.

    Good luck with your project, I suspect you will have plenty of material. But please get your facts straight!
