The live episode, the third in “The Mentors” Scaling Mentorship series with corporate leaders, runs the gamut from James’ recent move from Sydney to New York to his upbringing on the family farm to being named managing director of a PR agency at the age of 26 to his best advice and most pivotal career moments.
As the twin brothers and co-hosts say on their website, “When James decided he needed a new challenge, he moved to Australia to help turn around a small PR company that was operating at a loss. Within seven years he grew it from 15 people to over 100 with operations all across Asia Pacific. His experience traveling the world was instrumental in helping him create new business units across new geographies and cultures where the clients and their needs had to be relearned.
“In our interview we also learn how the PR business has changed and what companies should be looking for when partnering with agencies today. James Wright speaks to the future of PR, where he sees massive opportunities, and what people should do if they want to break into the industry.”
