'Lateefah is a friendly but professional person, who has kindly accepted to be my guest speaker 3 times on my BA(Hons) Marketing Communications course at University of Westminster, to deliver a speech and provide some insight information on the role and responsibilities of Press Officer as a practitioner, more importantly as an enthusiastic and very engaging person. She has also provided some practical recommendations to my students for how to prepare themselves for the graduate job market for the PR industry. It was pleasure to have her at our campus as well as online.
