Charity and Public Relations Fireside Chat


This opportunity is open to all DMU students. The maximum number of places for this event is 15. Please check our eligibility criteria for further details.


In cooperation with our partner, Pagoda Projects, DMU Global will be offering twenty online events throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. All events are employability focused and aim to give students an insight into topics related to the international working world.

This event will focus on the Charity Industry as well as Public Relations and Communication. A fireside chat is an informal yet structured interview between a Pagoda Projects moderator and a guest. It’s a unique opportunity to uncover the speaker’s personal stories and ideas.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about what it is like working in charity/NGO sector.
  • Discuss tips and tricks of building a career in the sector.


For this session, we welcome Jack Everett, PR Manager at UNICEF UK.

After completing a three month internship with InternChina/Pagoda Projects in Zhuhai, Jack joined a consumer PR agency working with a range of brands and businesses across the UK.

During this time he worked on a number of integrated PR and marketing campaigns, which involved orchestrating high profile print, online and broadcast interviews, managing photoshoots, writing copy for press releases, websites and magazine features.

After three years agency-side, Jack  joined the UK’s largest dementia charity, Alzheimer’s Society, working as a Media Officer for two years promoting the organisation’s fundraising and policy work.

Today he works for Unicef UK as a PR Manager. Working with the charity’s High Profile Supporters, Ambassadors, corporate partners and international colleagues, he manages flagship fundraising events such as Soccer Aid for Unicef. He also supports the organisation’s mission to ensure the safety of every child, especially in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
