Digital communications focus of inaugural Channel Islands PR Forum

Tuesday 30 June 2015

The trends shaping the future communications landscape globally will form the focus of debate at the inaugural CIPR PR Forum to be held in the Channel Islands in September.

Organised by the Channel Islands Group of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR), the half day ‘Channel Islands PR Forum 2015: Future Reputations’ conference will take place on 24 September at the i2 offices in St Peter Port, Guernsey, and will feature a line-up of visiting experts right across the digital, international and academic PR space.

As well as featuring a keynote speech from current CIPR President Sarah Pinch, the event will also include a session on the complexities of engaging in international PR campaigns led by Eva Maclaine, Principal of Maclaine Communications, and consultant, researcher and lecturer Dr Barbara Gibson.

A panel session featuring Stuart Bruce (Principal of Stuart Bruce Associates), Steve Dunne (CEO of Digital Drums) and Andrew Bruce Smith (Managing Director of Escherman) will debate the challenges and opportunities in a rapidly evolving digital communications environment and the impact of technological innovation, including the ethical issues thrown up by wearable technology.

The event will also include a session led by Dr Jon White, visiting professor at Henley Business School and Cardiff University JOMEC, looking at the ongoing ‘Tomorrow’s Company’ project and the role of public relations in the modern corporate landscape.

Adam Riddell, Chair of the CIPR Channel Islands Group, said: “The CIPR is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its Royal Charter this year, so this was an ideal opportunity for the Channel Islands to recognise that and provide a forum to debate the key issues impacting the PR profession. The event will focus on how the PR and wider communications industry is evolving, and with that in mind I’m delighted that we will be able to welcome such a stellar line-up of experts who will offer some fascinating insights into what the future holds for the industry.

“For individuals and organisations in the private and public sector who value relationships and reputations across Jersey and Guernsey, this will be a unique opportunity to ensure they are at the very cutting edge of PR thinking.”

The ‘Channel Islands PR Forum: Future Reputations’ conference, for which BL Magazine is media partner, takes place at the i2 offices in St Peter Port, Guernsey from 12.30pm – 5pm on 24September.
