Europe's most popular communications, PR
and media conversation

This week's chat

November 10, 2011 #CommsChat, 14 November – Have we lost control?

On Monday 14 November, #CommsChat is doing things a little differently. We’re teaming up with the PRCA to broadcast from its debate at the Imperial War Museum, North, which takes as its topic: Have we lost control?

The debate will bring together senior PR and comms professionals to examine the top questions in communications today. With the evolving media landscape changing the way everyone communicates, what’s the role of PR professionals today and tomorrow? Who is and will be in control of the messages and mediums? Are we now at war with customers and consumers?

As well as the debate taking place in the room – featuring speakers such as John Greenway from Manchester Airport, former #CommsChat guest host Amanda Coleman from Greater Manchester Police, and Claire Donnelly, Radio 5 Live broadcaster – we’re hoping that the #CommsChat community will chime in.

I’ll be live-tweeting from the event, and we want you to tweet your questions for the panel. The timings will be a little bit different: the Q&A portion of the evening will begin at 7.50 and last for about 40 minutes, so within that time I’ll try and put as many of your questions to the panel as possible. I’ll also be relaying what the speakers are arguing from 7pm onwards, and I expect there’ll be plenty there for CommsChatters to debate as well!

So to reiterate:

I’ll be tweeting from 7pm onwards with the details of the speakers’ arguments
From 7.50pm the panel will be answering questions from the room and from those submitted on #CommsChat
As usual, a transcript will go up shortly after the session.
We hope you can join us! As ever, tag your tweets with #CommsChat or use to take part.
And if you’re in Manchester on Monday night, tickets for the debate are still available – visit Have we lost control? or email Vicky King for details.
