Europe's most popular communications, PR

This week's chat

August 20, 2012 Getting it wrong [and right?]

This week, on #CommsChat we’ll be considering the communications missteps of things like the Lyme Regis tourism campaign, Tesco/Asda branded water and the Department of Education’s decision to sell off school playing fields in a post-Olympics Britain. We’ll also discuss the good, the bad and the ugly of the communications industry in 2012.


  • Did the Olympics set the bar too high for communications in 2012 and beyond? Will communications have to change in response?
  • Does a formal education in public relations and communications help or hinder when actually doing the job?
  • Who are the top-three global players in the communications world today?
  • How will changing technology continue to impact communications after the Socialympics?
  • What effect does bad communications have on an industry, business or government programme?
  • What do recent communications failures say about Britain’s ability (or lack thereof) to capitalise on the Olympic buzz?

#CommsChat takes place every Monday evening on Twitter from 8 to 9pm (UK time). You can take place here, or simply search in Twitter for the hashtag. A transcript will go up on Tuesday morning.

Everyone is welcome to take part in #CommsChat and we look forward to hearing your opinions. And we’d love to hear your suggestions for upcoming topics – what should we be covering? Tweet us or email Molly Pierce.
