On February 9, 2012, I’ll be joining my colleagues in Amsterdam to deliver a keynote on Eight New Strategic Practices for the PR Champion. As a part of the preparation for the event, The Social Conference 2012, I was asked to discuss a few topics. My video focuses on several of the “hot” topics in PR and how professionals today are taking on new roles and responsibilities. These topics include: the differences between the old and the new PR mindset, the impact of social media on the relationship between journalists and PR pros, how social media requires a unique and powerful new communication approach, why social networking changes the approach of crisis management, and what’s going on with corporate messages and the good “old” press release.
I’ll be touching on these topics in my presentation, which is also the subject matter of my new book with FT Press. I’m also very excited to announce that my book, “Social Media and Public Relations: Eight New Practices for the PR Professional” is available for pre-order on Amazon. You can learn more about my book here.
If you’re in the Amsterdam on the 9th of February, I hope you will visit me at The Social Conference 2012!
