Shifting Norms in Politics and PR - PR is more important than ever before!

Mar 30, 2017

Today’s politics have social media buzzing and pollsters guessing. Many are still reviewing the recent US election results and shaking their heads.

Do Twitter and Facebook now have more influence than traditional news outlets? What role does fake news now play in public relations? 

How does the “post-truth” era affect politics AND public relations?  One million people shared a fake video of the Pope endorsing Donald Trump.

What could this mean for our 2017 BC election?

Should the new era in politics change how we prepare, promote and poll?

Join us on 30 March 2017for a panel discussion featuring:

  • Geoff Hastings, Global TV
  • Kyle Braid, Senior Vice President, Ipsos Reid
  • Laila Yuile, Freelance writer and blogger

Bring your thoughts and your questions. It is sure to be a fascinating and engaging discussion.
