Kev O'Sullivan, senior partner at Fleishman Hillard, takes the PR Pepper Challenge

Here's the latest PR Pepper Challenge, produced in association with our good friends at Meltwater.

On the show today we've got Kev O'Sullivan, senior partner at Fleishman Hillard on the show.

Kev and I are going to be talking about creativity in PR alongside a bunch of other stuff.

The reason we're calling this series of interviews The PR Pepper Challenge is that interwoven between the chat around creativity and PR I'll be asking Kev three questions.

If he gets those questions right, I have to eat one of these peppers and if Kev gets the questions wrong I'm happy to say he has to eat one of the peppers.

The peppers are of increasing strength - so we'll begin with mild, move on to medium and finish with hot.
