SCHICK Magazine unites with smart, stylish and successful working women to discuss their secrets to success and empower and inspire the next generation of young women. In SCHICK Magazine’s Fashion Issue out now, Bukky Karibi-Whyte, the founder of PR company, Robert Taylor Media, speaks about her 10- year journey in Public Relations, the challenges along the way and her most critical skill for success. SCHICK Magazine, in partnership with Robert Taylor Media, is giving one lucky reader a one-week mentorship opportunity with SCHICK At Work.
What would you say has been the biggest achievement to you in your career?
Remaining a functional business with 10 years of brand excellence and dedication to our craft and our clients.
Which skill do you think has been most critical to your success to date?
Consistency and dedication to the craft and to the business. Is that a skill?
What advice would you have for the younger generation coming into your industry now?
I would advise that they try to shadow someone currently practicing. There is no amount of education that can prepare you for the realities of Public Relations. Education is extremely important but it’s also important to get experience firsthand.
To enter the competition, you must follow @SCHICKMagazine and @RobertTaylorMediaOnline on Instagram and send in a creative image of you holding your copy of SCHICK Magazine Issue 3, using the hashtag #SCHICKAtWork, and include why you deserve to win the mentorship. If you are chosen, you must also have with you: your photo ID and competition slip to hand. The competition closes on the 30th of December, 2017. Please note: This competition is for young persons between the age of 16-21 years old. Under 18- year olds must have a signed copy of their parent or guardian’s consent letter to be mentored.
