This week's chat

June 26, 2017 #CommsChat on PR and comms in 2017 – so far

This week on #CommsChat, we’re looking back at our predictions for IC in 2017 for a six-month review on the state of PR and comms. With a lot of upheaval in the past half year, including political, corporate and humanitarian crises making the headlines almost every week, crisis communication skills have never been more important for practitioners. How have these been implemented, and to what effect? We’ll be looking at this, as well as the proliferation of content and if we really have entered a post-truth era.

The topics are:

  • Have PR/comms practitioners taken on more responsibilities in 2017? If so, what?
  • Have we really entered a post-truth era?
  • What role has crisis comms played across major events of 2017? Is timing the most integral part of crisis management?
  • Does continued proliferation of content make cut-through more difficult? How are digital platforms adapting?
  • Will the industry undergo significant change before 2018? What are your six-month predictions?

Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place every Monday, from 8-9pm GMT. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will be posted to Storify on Tuesday morning. We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics – please get in touch with Amy at or contact us on Twitter with any ideas.
