Fake news and the changing face of PR in the digital age

No Comments

This week it was announced that BBC journalists are going to visit schools to teach children about fake news and how to identify it.

High profile journalists such as Huw Edwards, Tina Daheley and Amol Rajan will be involved in the initiative designed to tackle fake news that is threatening fact-based public debate and trust in journalism.

This is another example of action being taken to fight fake news and the effect that it is having on the media landscape. On Wednesday 18 April we will be hosting our first thought leadership event of the year on the topic of fake news and how PR must evolve in the digital age.

‘Fake news and the changing face of PR in the digital age’ will give attendees an insight into the challenges that fake news brings for the media, how they deal with this and what opportunities it gives PR professionals. Attendees will take away a better understanding of fake news and the future of PR in the digital age.

The morning will kick off with registration, breakfast and networking at 8am, followed by talks from Graeme Whitfield, business editor of The Journal and our media and PR manager Finlay Magowan and finishing off with a roundtable discussion answering questions from attendees.
