What’s on this week
What’s on this week
The next 10 days are packed full of conferences, courses and events for comms pros. Here is my regular look at What’s on this week to help you choose how to spend your time.
It covers Sunday 14 to Wednesday 24 June 2015.
Crisis Communications Conference
Readers of my blog can save £100 off the ticket price of PR Week’s Crisis Communications Conference on 18 June. The code you need is: ALLIC2098.
On Thursday 18 June I will be attending FutureComms15 in London, it’s billed as The PR and Comms Event of the Year, and promises to be a good day.
The organisers say: The evolution of PR & Comms is picking up speed. With content marketers taking centre stage in the digital world, what place is left for PR professionals? Is PR actually dead? Do PR pros need to turn into content marketers? Or will content marketers slowly take on all PR tasks and duties? Following last year’s acclaimed event, FutureComms15’s one-day conference delves into the PR/content divide to unveil the future of PR and communications.
