Budding communicators recognised with SenateSHJ Prize

A disease threatening our ZESPRI industry; a chocolate brand in crisis and the influence of German culture on public relations: three very disparate topics which won three tertiary students of communication this year’s SenateSHJ Prize.

In its fourth year, the SenateSHJ Prize awards $500 to top students of communications and public relations at Auckland University of Technology, Unitec and Massey University.

Neil Green, Chief Executive of SenateSHJ, said while the assignments covered such diverse subject areas, they each demonstrated exceptional insight and potential.

“It’s reassuring to see that the next generation of professional communicators are such smart thinkers.”

· Massey University’s Aly Thompson won her prize with her essay on how German politics and societal culture affects its public relations practice.

· Unitec’s Marina Beck discussed the reputation crisis that nearly cost Cadbury its legion of chocolate-loving fans.

· AUT’s Shawn Moodie examined ZESPRI’s award-winning communications plan which helped avert damage to their brand during a PSA outbreak.

Mr Green said SenateSHJ offers the annual prize to encourage excellence in communications and motivate students to undertake more rigorous thinking and evaluation in their work.

“The SenateSHJ Prize rewards students who have the potential to be excellent communicators. We hope this early recognition helps them secure roles in what we know is a tough industry to start out in.”

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
