Laura Dare has a reputation in Adelaide as an excellent writer with a particular flair for speech writing I’m told. These days she is available as a freelance writer but in her past she has pushed out stories at Messenger Newspapers and probably created and even ‘managed’ some for SA Tourism Commission and Arts SA where she took on PR roles. In true, communication professional style, she is very tight lipped about her confidential behind-the-scenes work so the challenge has been set for Nigel and I to try to prise open her story chamber in a way that doesn’t burn bridges for her. Plus we’ll also explore her current career move into psychology and some research she’s doing into how to get men to take prostate cancer messages more seriously.
