First I'd like to apologise for the lateness of this post - I don't really have any excuse. Back at the end of January I was lucky enough to be offered the chance to join a small group of individuals to participate in Damien Mulley's first Online PR Training Course. As would be expected with anything that Damien does, the initial session had over 80 requests to attend for the 30 places that he had to offer, so I was extremely delighted to be able to attend. The event would act as a sounding board and "staging environment" for Damien to put together a full publicly accessible version for Digital and Public Relation professionals.
For the session that I participated in there were 6 fundamental areas that Damien covered:
- 0. Basics of Online Comms
- 1. Developing a Communications Bible
- 2. Developing a Comms Philosophy
- 3. Working with: Blogs, Forums, Twitter etc.
- 4. Finding Tools – Who is talking about you online?
- 5. Crisis Communications
While this may seem like the lazy way out, and I hope you'll be convinced that it isn't, I decided that the best recap I could possibly write up on the event wouldn't surpass the excellent write up and video that Leo Fogarty wrote. So with that in mind, please have a look at Leo's recap and stay tuned to Mulley.ie for news of an upcoming course that you could take - I highly recommend it!
