Confessions of a working mum: Why I left TV to work in PR

Written by Rakhee Rajani

After a 10-year career in television production, working on prime-time programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing, Dispatches, Watchdog, The Undateables and 24 Hours in A&E, I left the small screen and started a career in PR.

I wrote a candid account for PR Week detailing my transition from TV into the PR world – Confessions of a working mum: Why I left TV to work in PR, and have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response from women in the TV industry.
