While BabelCamp is on the go this Saturday, we had a unique opportunity to talk to one of the keynote speakers on stage in Brno who presented some highly interesting facts about the way PR has changed and why ‘brand storytelling’ plays such an important role in online marketing. Chris Lee is the Head of Digital Knowledge in Grayling, a leading global communications agency, and a contributor to Econsultancy, a community for the world's digital marketing and e-commerce professionals. He was happy to share a few words with Netocratic’s readers to demonstrate why PR should lead digital communication.
Netocratic recently introduced you to Hacker, Maker, Teacher, Thief: Advertising’s Next Generation, a book by CreativeSocial, a group of some of the most (inter)active creative directors & business owners. The privilege of showing off and selling the first copies of Creative Social’s book has been given to Lulu.com – a community for creators of remarkable work..
What does the industry need to do today (not tomorrow) to stay valuable and relevant? What the f**k do clients know about great advertising? How can copying make you more original? How do we 'do' innovation? How do you find emotional resonance in real time marketing? What’s the best way to punch procrastination in the face? And why are we so excited by the next generation of advertising? These questions are smoothly answered in the book of the year to be Hacker, Maker, Teacher, Thief: Advertising’s Next generation, with Scott Morrison as one of the marketing and advertising professionals in the book.
