|Game of PR: What 'Game of Thrones' Can Teach You About Public Relations
By: Bulldog Reporter
Are you still staring wide-eyed at your TV in wonder from the Season 6 finale of Game of Thrones? There’s no denying that this season was one of the greatest we’ve seen, and the last episode was on fire (or should I say, wildfire?)
The popular television series, based on best-selling novels by author George R. R. Martin, tells the story of different individuals and their quest to take the Iron Throne. What you might not realize is that the characters in the show are not only proficient in gory battle tactics, deception, passion and regime, they are also wise in the ways of public relations.
While some great secrets were revealed in the season finale, we are still left with unanswered questions as we head into the 10-month period of Throne-less Sundays. In honor of the conclusion of another amazing season, here are 8 public relations tips as told by the characters of Game of Thrones.
1. “Winter is coming” – Eddard Stark
Maybe one of the most famous lines of the series, ‘Winter is coming’ is repeated several times throughout each season and represents not only a change in weather but an imminent doom to come. This concept directly relates to crisis management. Not all crises in PR are forthcoming; but when you can predict the possibility of a crisis, you can better prepare yourself for when catastrophe is afoot.
