It never goes away, but the need for PR mastery grows and changes with the tools, the times and the trends in media.

Why is PR growing in importance? And what are the trends driving its growth?

Drawing on 20+ years of experience in media and analyst relations, as well as marketing strategy, content strategy and development, crisis communications, and social media — Hilary McCarthy will explore the top 5 trends in PR that every marketer needs to know.

“From the evolving media landscape to greater integration with marketing,” McCarthy says, “the PR industry is set to set to change drastically over the next five years, so much so that many PR practitioners don’t believe ‘public relations’ will describe the work they do. … yet, some things — like good storytelling and needing to be a jack of all trades—will stay the same.”
