S2 E5: PR 4.0 with Andy See
Manage episode 357533174 series 3369510
PR 4.0 has arrived. Are you ready for it?
For this episode, we're joined by Andy See from Perspective Strategies in Malaysia. Andy explains his concept of PR 4.0, which is the idea that consumers and stakeholders now take an active role in the process of news and information sharing. Businesses and brands must adjust to this new way of thinking and use it to their advantage to create content that is engaging and encourages people to be active.
Andy also discusses how professional communicators need to evolve to include consumer input and story co-creation. Consumers now have the power to communicate their own stories, as well as share brand stories with their peers. In light of this, professional content creators must embrace this idea of partnering with co-creators to bring forth truthful, ethical, and well-crafted communications projects.
Finally, Andy emphasizes that trust is essential and that PR professionals must play a role in being the custodians of brand information and ensuring that trust is not affected.
