Events

In Conversation With Alison Phillips

This week Cision welcomed journalists and PR professionals to a Women in Journalism event with Daily Mirror Editor Alison Phillips, moderated by Eleanor Mills. Among the advice given to aspiring journalists was the call for "resilience, hard work and picking yourself back up". Above all, a "decent" journalist "has to be interested in people". Alison's first 'experience' as an editor, as revealed at the event, was as a child crossing out and rewriting newspaper headlines.

Eleanor Mills, in her advice to women journalists, said to "always negotiate a bit more. Don't be afraid to haggle your way to a bit more value." Alison Phillips reflected on her career at the Mirror and said that managing people was one of the most difficult aspects not just of work, but of life, but that being "blunt" is a necessary skill. An editor has to "be clear about what [they] want", and "if you can't make the yes or no decision you are in the wrong industry." While both agreed that while the situation had improved for female journalists since they started their careers, they acknowledged that competition for roles is fiercer than ever.

Information about Women in Journalism can be found at womeninjournalism.co.uk. For more information about Cision's journalist services, click here.
