A Crash-course on the PR[et] stunt and how businesses PRostitute their values and demand their staff to do the same.



PRactices in


PRoper labelling when

PResented with concerns to

PRotect people and


PRemature deaths from


PRoducts, taking

PRecedence by being

PReoccupied in

PRioritizing and


PRosperity, while being

PRetentious, but not






PRincipled and with


PRoviding all ingredients by

PRinting labels to

PReserve and

PRolong life … is so out of



The PRefabricated

PRemeditated and




PRomising and

PRofessing that “nothing is more important right now” after an Inquest

PRobing a death, public

PRostests and

PRessure from the

PRess is typical for the

PR[et] machine with

PRofits over

PRivate lives

PRoving their negligence


PRoblem remains: no

PRocecution, no

PRison sentence, and no

PRoposed new leadership


Pret A Manger

PRovokes anger,

PRevails and regains

PRominence by hiring and


PR firm

Headland, Tovera Consulting and former FSA Chief Tim Smith to fix the mess and repaint the facade, like colouring a rotten egg after having ignored multiple warnings.


PRecious lives paid the

PRice, financially

PReyed and

PRowled upon by greedy



If Public Relation is not for the sake of both, the company AND the public; if a company cannot relate to families having lost loved ones, due to the company’s negligence, going full steam ahead with business as usual, then Public Ramifications won’t fix lost Reputation.


PRaying for the families, especially this Christmas time.




P.S. Mind intellectual PRoperty.

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
An incomplete list on what other Pret staff say about Pret’s bullying environment:
Caught in the Act Bullying at Pret.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by
The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review.
Thank you for reading/listening.
