Eight New Strategic Practices for the PR Champion
Dec. 4, 1–2 p.m. EST
Because social media has reignited the public relations profession and influenced a new world of communications, public relations professionals are increasing their roles and responsibilities. Today’s practitioners are shifting from communication handlers and facilitators to strategic public relations influencers and champions. When public relations meets social media, and communication unites with technology, public relations professionals have the opportunity to expand their skill set and their public relations practices.
PR professionals will learn new practices and be actively involved in social media as:
- PR Policymakers to spearhead a team of social media visionaries and strategist in their organizations who participate in audits, policy development and social governance;
- Internal Collaboration Generators and COMMS Organizers who, through collaborative technology, create more opportunities to innovate and develop meaningful content for productive and targeted communications programs;
- PR Tech Testers and Relationship Analyzers, using new competencies in Information Technologies to experience the latest social media tools from monitoring and measurement to influence and engagement;
- Pre-Crisis Doctors and Members of the Reputation Task force, becoming more proactive and fully prepared for social crisis, upholding and maintaining the image of their brands, at all times; and
- Masters of the Metrics, who will also be able to build programs that offer executives the metrics they expect, revealing communications impact and valuable business outcomes.
