The tortoise laid bare

I was watching an ex-colleague Imogen Bailey talk about her experiences working in the comms team at Skype via Thomson Reuters webcast (registration required) of the PRCA conference. Beyond a move to an undisclosed new job, there were no revelations in Imogen’s presentation. Instead what I was really surprised by was the elementary questions coming up from the floor.

If this is a yardstick of our industry ‘getting’ social media then there is a longer way to go than I had ever imagined and can fully understand why PR as a profession does not have the brand permission from many marketers to operate in the digital field.

  1. A point well made and I’m up for doing everything I can to help the industry change. First up I think is to face up to reality – what the perception of PR is on the web and what other industries think of it.
