Bloggers and PR Guys

I was lucky enough to get my name on a list to attend an event I'm really excited about. On the Jan 21st Damien Mullay has organised a get together between a collection of Irish bloggers and a team of PR folk. The event, happening the Edelman offices on Stephen's Green, is a chance for us bloggers to gain a better understanding of what it is PR is trying to achieve, and how it's trying to achieve it, while allowing the PR people to talk to us blog types and find out what it is we do, and why we do it.

Having studied Public Relations myself I think I have a good idea of what Irish PR is doing. However, as a blogger and digital marketer I also know that they're rapidly falling behind the times. PR needs to reinvent itself with a serious amount of time spent focusing on understanding modern social media.

For anyone interested in going along, pop over to Damien's blog and drop him a comment. I'm not sure if all the places are full yet or not, but pop along and have a check.
