PR Fraternity President, Siobhan Filsell, says: "We're ecstatic to welcome such a respected professional as Nicky Campbell to speak to students at Greenwich. This year we wanted to provide the Fraternity's members with a wide range of insights, to help students explore the different industries they may like to work in. Nicky will give us a glimpse into the broadcasting world and also into his campaigning work."
