Generation Z: creators or consumers

Traditionally, teenagers and young adults (Gen. Z) have had their identities and lives shaped for them via powerful media: television, film, magazines, and advertising. However, the Generation Z of today are the children of the modern internet and social media, and this has transformed a generation. The internet and social media are the most influential platforms in modern life - transforming how we communicate, shop, learn, think, and brand ourselves. They are also platforms shaped by us, meaning we are both creators and consumers. This has been most subversive of all, for Generation Z, and has changed and challenged all the expected 'norms' for young adults, requiring a new understanding of the next generation now and as we move into the future.

Bridging the gap between measurement theory and reality

A barrier to effective PR measurement is a belief that management only wants AVEs, reputation can’t be measured, and budgets barely cover a PR agency retainer—never mind a media intelligence agency. We’ll debunk these myths with simple steps to build measurement into plans and secure C-suite buy-in to the shift from quantitative to qualitative analysis in an era of social media and web analytics.

‘We can’t do that’: getting creative with social and storytelling in corporate comms

In B2B, corporate communications and public affairs, we often steer clear of creativity. We believe our communications needs to be sombre to reflect the seriousness of our work and audiences. But creative social and storytelling techniques can bring ideas, opinions and emotions to life in any field. Indeed, without them, we struggle to get heard in a noisy media landscape. In this workshop we will run through several relevant examples, and introduce some tools and methods you can apply to your own work.

How digital helps you find your sexy, even for the most unsexy organisations

Not all organisations are appealing consumer brands or profit from sexy campaigns and large budgets. Government entities, charities, associations, and specialized business rarely produce content that entices audiences and empowers their communications and PR strategies online, but digital channels can help make something seemingly unsexy, sexy. You have to better engage with all stakeholders, find partnerships, focus on creative messages and storytelling, and strengthen digital outreach. Virality in the social media age is achievable - even with regulations, limited resources, and shrinking budgets.

Make great videos with your smartphone or tablet

Self-generated video content is becoming an increasingly attractive way to communicate. In this short hands-on workshop Rob will explain how to pick up a smartphone or tablet and create video content that people want to watch. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices. Apple is preferred, pre-loaded with the free iMovie editing app. Alternatively Android devices should either have their own unique editing app or Power Director (also free).
