The Disruption of PR
Public relations, like other institutions and professions, is experiencing transformative change. It’s effecting how we do our jobs. There’s an inescapable entwining between communications and community engagement. Feedback inundates our emails, twitter feeds and websites – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. PR professionals see value in having a pulse of stakeholders’ opinions, but in the age of technology when is it enough? What does respectful and constructive dialogue look like nowadays?
Find out how the role of PR is evolving in mainstream and digital media. Learn how to adapt when best laid communication plans go sideways. First Nations communities and government agencies are evolving—learn how communications and engagement is evolving with them. Explore what you can do to prepare for an emergency or crisis.
Leave inspired and motivated to take on your next communications or engagement project.
All this and more will be part of the 2016 Beyond the Hype.
