Last year at SXSW, I handed over the panel I proposed to my former colleagues at Dachis Group (Social Business By Design). This year will be different. I've submitted a panel on why PR's future may not look like PR.The description:
When You Think of PR (Public Relations), your first impression may be of the silver tongued "flack" spinning a corporations' news, putting a positive slant on everything. With advances in networks, online communities and the ability of the average individual to become their own content producer and influencer—the face of PR is changing, shifting the focus from communications to engagement in increasingly public spaces both online and off.
What I'll Cover:
I work for a Public Relations firm (Edelman) with no formal background in what's traditionally been called "PR". I have a million ideas in my head about where this is all going. If you want to hear them, you'll have to vote.
