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).
The 30 minute long show covers a wide range of topics including:
- how social media is used when it comes to sharing Government related content
- building relationships between Government departments and online audiences
- differences between public and private sector social media comms
- Open Policy making
Plus it also features an exclusive comment from Alex Aiken, @alexanderaiken the Executive Director for Government Communications.
