From presentation to Canadian Public Relations Society Vancouver presentation: Learn how to engage with reporters in the digital age through social media from Gillian Shaw - the Vancouver’s Sun’s Digital Life writer

Dickens, when he was a parliamentary reporter for the Morning Chronicle, was armed only with a pen and a notepad. Today’s journalist comes equipped with the potential of a full production TV studio in a device hardly bigger than a cigarette pack – an iPhone or other smartphone. For newspapers in particular, this has revolutionized the way news is collected and disseminated.
Gillian will be talking about a typical day in a digital newsroom where the barriers between journalists and readers have been all but erased creating dialogues that never existed before and opening a flow of information that was not dreamed of barely five years ago.
The rules have changed for everyone and are constantly evolving. While you might know what they are this week, next week might be different.
