EACD Webinar: Future of PR

Monday 16 September 2013

The EACD is delighted to invite its members to join an online session discussing future trends within Public Relations.
 The Future of PR - It's Life or Death for us
It's an age-old quarrel between PR and Marketing: who owns communication within a company? The truth is, in the age of Social Media, everyone does - down to every employee. And through that arises the need for a new kind of communication management. Will PR rise to the challenge? Or "die", as a mere function within Marketing? Annabelle Atchison, Director for 33 Digital. whose roots are in PR, presents her take on the situation along with hands-on advice for PR professionals and is looking for open discussion on where PR needs to move to survive.
