As public relations practitioners, our daily roles centre on managing favourable public perceptions of our clients.

2017 saw PRMR Inc. relocate into a fabulous upscale building called the Atrium in Haggatt Hall, also home to G&A Communications Inc. and FedNav.
This move was nearly ten years in the making because, for the most part, my employees and I were comfortably located at my home in St. James.

Since hiring a dedicated online/inbound marketer we have been paying even closer attention to our performance. Recently we noticed that our Twitter Page has been out performing our Facebook page considerably.
In the second of our regular Podcasts on all things Communications related, Pamala founder of Barbadian Communications company PRMR Inc. discusses the role of PR in the digital age and how technologies can be integrated into traditional Public Relations.
In PRMR Inc.’s second podcast we discussed the role of public relations in the digital age. I felt a sense of déjà vu as I discussed some of the concepts because I remembered similar discussions on the role of PR in the broadcast age, when radio and television started demanding greater accountability from companies.
