Any additional comments?
I'm certainly no professional, but had various experiences with PR firms for my business. Having a look at the behind the scenes of how they operate, and the many aspects involved in such a delicate job, definitely increased my empathy towards organizations like these. The narration and audio is perfect, very clear, and with the right tone. Highly recommended to professionals but also to someone just looking for a good series of funny, enticing real worklife stories.
