Prohibition invites you to their event

The New Rules of PR

About this event

Following the sold-out webinar series earlier in the year discussing the future of content marketing and the importance of zero-party data, the Prohibition team is back to deliver its next session – discussing ‘The New Rules of PR’. The session will discuss what has changed in Public Relations and why it’s more important than ever to adapt to the changing playing field – or risk being left behind.

With almost real-time data available now to the sector, can the PR sector create a more agile process to measure success and refine activity to deliver better business results.

This 1hr session will cover:

· The first Public Relations firm

· What’s changing? Old vs New Media and the growth of social media

· The new PR – More than just drafting a press release

· Case studies and examples to inspire your next innovative PR campaign

· Summary discussion – and how we can help


‘The New Rules of PR’ is aimed at those in the industry, seeking to keep up with the expanding role of a Public Relations professional. This session will also prove insightful for businesses, who will leave the session ready to take full advantage of the new, innovative ways to better understand and communicate with its audience after learning the tricks of the trade and gaining inspiration from some inspiring case studies.

Anyone wishing to understand how PR has changed and evolved, and how to keep-up these changes, will certainly benefit from attending this session.

Please note this event is not open to other agencies or consultants. We do provide paid training in this space if you are interested.
