This is the presentation Luca Penati gave at the Content Marketing Strategies Conference in Berkeley, on February 16 2010. The focus is the role of public relations (PR) in content development and activation. Some of the video he shared are not included, but you can get the gist of his presentation.

This the key take-away:

We need to be social storytellers
because every company is a media company
that means that in the next few years we will see marketing departments transforming in publishing operations and while content is king, we shouldn’t forget about the Queen (Activation) and the Court (Community.)
