The Week Ahead: PR news diary
The usual heads up on things to look out for in the news this week:
Monday 4th – Lady Gaga is due in court, following accusations from her former PA that she was shorted on overtime pay for activities including flushing Gaga’s toilet.
Tuesday 5th – India launches its first satellite to Mars, and of course it’s Bonfire Night. So expect some flash-bang PR stunts and plenty of sobering awareness campaigns.
Wednesday 6th – This year’s much-anticipated M&S Christmas ad makes its TV debut (you can see it on YouTube from Monday though). Expect an Alice in Wonderland cross Wizard of Oz fairy tale theme.
Thursday 7th – Twitter aims to price its offering and will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Its ticker will be ‘TWTR’.
Friday 8th – “Thor 2: The Dark World” is released in cinemas. Heavily promoted, will it be a Viking smash or a Norse tragedy?
