as a destination The Public Relations and Communication

professionals community of Mauritius showcases the evolution of

our society’s socio economic and cultural patterns since our

Independence Our association through this initiative is certainly

setting the standards inliving up to the expectations of our

respective industries and most of all to the potential of our country

in these challenging times where we have a role to play each and

every one of us as responsible global citizens and practitioners.

When one has a look in the rear mirror – It is today difficult to

realise the giant steps made for example in the field of print media

a little more than a quarter of a century…The great grandson of a

modest typographer born in the mid 1800’s had the privilege

during the mid 1970’s - to witness the dawning of the offset era

prior to going abroad for further studies, The digital revolution

enables us today , at this very minute to be connected to the world

speeches debates and presentations will be going online in real

time Profiles of participants and the themes they will address have

been on line for the last 36 hours– thanks to the technology

powering the website of the organisation set up serviced and

maintained by IChoc Ltd – managed by Krishna Thirapathi. Even

before today’s events we were on the web – through the

Facebook      social   networking   site   and   the   event’s   blog

prcpa.blogspot.com.

Both tools were put to task and set up by students of CTI
Tomorrow powered by new technological tools we will continue
sharing minds with the rest of the world through professional online
forums sharing of information and proposing training – We are
definitely far away from the smoke signals dispensation….


You want your story to be really heard?


Then you need to be online because there are 1.5 billion people
there.


They get information through web sites, blogs, search engines,
RSS feeds.
Today WE can and we NEED to relate directly to consumers.
Today, there is no more top down communication but a 2 way
dialogue: share, comment talk!
We do it by blogging, micro blogging, social bookmarking or social
networking.
                         NOW is the future
