At Hot Tin Rood, we specialise in PR for tech companies. We keep up to date with all the latest trends in digital technology, from new kit and software, to more general concepts and ideas. We all have an interest in tech and do a pretty good job of this. It may take a couple read-throughs and the occasional Google search but we always ‘get it’ in the end.

Given this background you might think that in our day-to-day work we’d bring some time saving, innovative and enabling tech to bear. And you’d be right. Now, we’ve all read these types of ‘listicles’ before. You know the sort of thing – ‘10 best apps for choosing your socks’ or ‘7 free downloads that will change your working life so that you only need to spend 4 hours a week in the office’ and so on. Well, here we’ll be telling you what we actually use, what we do with it and why. We could be drummed out of the Magic Circle for this!

I last attended high school half a lifetime ago. Literally. So I was very excited to pack my satchel (now a fashion item it seems) and travel to Stewart’s Melville College to meet their S5 students and the girls from Mary Erskine’s to attend a career’s lunch.

I joined Hot Tin Roof just over a year ago, and what a year it has been. I joined the agency as a relative newbie to PR, armed with a cheery attitude, an ambition to learn, and a distinct lack of Mac computer operating skills that had to be addressed immediately!

A day in the life of Darcey.

Monday, October 5th, 2015

The cats at Hot Tin Roof had the pleasure of Darcey’s company for a week of work experience. In between making herself useful and learning what a PR Agency does, Darcey found time to answer a quick Q&A for us. Here’s what she had to say:

If money was no object, what would you spend your day doing?

I would spend my day walking around New York City at Christmas time, browsing in every shop wasting no time looking at price tags.
