Leveson PR and social media implications

Just to demonstrate that it is old media that still rules Leveson has only made advance copies of his report available to mainstream media.

Communications lessons from London Olympics 2012

Last week I attended a fantastic conference organised by Communicate magazine on the communications lessons from the 2012 Olympics.
