This week's chat

March 9, 2017 #CommsChat on the GDPR and its impact on the PR industry

This week on #CommsChat, we welcome Robert Bownes, director of communications at Profusion, to talk about the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and what it could mean for the journalism and PR industry. We’ll look at what it is, why it was implemented and how GDPR should be approached, as well as the challenges and opportunities GDPR is likely to present.

The topics are:

  • What is GDPR? How might it affect the communications profession?
  • Will banning unsolicited emails to journalists threaten the PR industry?
  • What is the best way for PRs to communicate with journalists in a post-GDPR world?
  • How else can PR professionals prepare for GDPR?
  • Does GDPR represent an opportunity for the PR industry?

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.
