The role of social media in Government comms

What is the role of social media in Government communications? Every month Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Social Media Panel member Russell Goldsmith publishes a podcast, and this month he examines the topic in detail.

Russell interviewed Department of Business, Innovations & Skills’ Betony Kelly and Elayne Phillips, Head of Strategic Analytics and Evaluation in the Communications Group at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

  • differences between public and private sector social media comms
