The #PRStudChat Community Discusses Digital Media and AI on October 25th

Martin WaxmanPublic relations professionals must understand and embrace artificial intelligence (AI), machine language, and big data, from the resources that keep them up to speed to how brands are using advanced technologies that may affect their roles in communications.

It’s a lot to encompass, so we’re going to dive into the topic to help communicators improve strategy, storytelling, and relationship building.

On Thursday, October 25th at 12:00 p.m. ET the #PRStudChat community will gather for a Twitter chat focused on Digital Media and AI. Our special guest driving the discussion will be Martin Waxman, APR, who leads digital and social media training and workshops.

Martin is a communications strategist and teaches digital strategy. He is also the co-founder of three PR agencies, president of a consultancy, Martin Waxman Communications, and has worked in the industry for 25+ years. You can learn more about Martin here.

 About #PRStudChat

It began with a simple question asked by Angela Hernandez, then President of PRSSA at Central Michigan University (CMU). “Is PR Right for me?” A follow-up blog post by Communication Strategist Deirdre Breakenridge inspired a series of direct messages on Twitter between Breakenridge and fellow PR industry pro, Valerie Simon. This was an important question and one that should be explored beyond one student or one blog post. Why not build a community to help students across the country, and even the globe, learn from the experience and perspective of industry professionals … A community where everyone can learn and grow together.
