Event Details


What does the future hold for Canada's public relations professionals? What challenges are PR practice leaders facing on the job? Join CPRS Ottawa-Gatineau to explore how PR practice is evolving and reinventing itself in a digital and social workplace. 

CPRS National has released a new disucssion paper, The Elevation of Public Relations. Written by Dan Tisch, APR, FCPRS, in collaboration with senior public relations professionals from across the country, the paper examines the 'megatrends' prevalent in public relations today. "Public relations is in a period of rapid growth and change, driven by the empowerment of the public through the social web and the rising business value of reputation as an intangible asset," said Daniel Tisch. "In an era of endless content, fake news and a loss of trust, there are both big risks and vast opportunities for professional, ethical public relations."

    Shawna brings over 10 years of experience as a marketer, public relations, and communications strategist. Whether holding turf at the table in a large global inter-agency “think tank”, building out & implementing strategic social media plans, or planning and executing national media tours on all major Canadian networks, Shawna is a connector in the sense that she sees the bigger, cohesive picture when it comes to telling the stories of our clients. “We can no longer work in the traditional silos of marketing communications. The flow between PR, Marketing Communications and Advertising allows us to see the big holistic picture and these blurred lines only make it easier to act in the best interest of our clients.” Connect with Shawna at @ShawnaCatherine and @TruedotDesign.
