With the New Communications Forum taking place last week itï¿½s no surprise that thereï¿½s a lot of content from the event and a lot of excellent insights into the challenges and opportunities facing PR ï¿½ check out the links below…
However, before I get to that, arenï¿½t the reports of the US governmentï¿½s spending on PR most interesting? The fact that Ketchum has received over $95m is hard to believe! No wonder there are doing VNRï¿½s – Iï¿½m surprised they havenï¿½t launched their own TV channel with revenues like that coming in the door. Other agencies should find out who does their business developmentï¿½
