The Circuit asked The Cincinnati Enquirer's @jamespilcher and I to present on the state of media relations in regards to the impact of social media (http://bit.ly/8YcMKv).

We shared a lot of stories to support the slides. But here are the slides we presented.

  • Thanks for sharing. You have such a great talent for explaining complex concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. Wish I was there. I keep trying to remind myself about the basics, especially when it comes to using social media to achieve strategic communication goals -- research, planning, implementation, evaluation. Don't forget to integrate with traditional communication channels, especially face-to-face. Thanks again.
