On Wednesday CAANZ Marcomms Leadership Group (MLG) is hosting a special event, Re-Imagining PR.

To this end, CAANZ Marcomms Leadership Group (MLG) is hosting a special event on 21 March: Re-Imagining PR.

The conversation economy just keeps getting bigger—and, as the regular social media fails show, scarier. So to help marketers benefit from it rather than get slapped by it, the CAANZ Marcomms Leadership Group (MLG) is following up the sell-out New Rules of Brand Engagement event last year with Re-Imagining PR: How ideas-led PR can help business, a forum featuring the brains behind the Cannes 2011 PR Grand Prix winner National Australia Bank’s Break Up campaign, PR Gold Lion winner Bundaberg’s Watermark, as well as Lynne Anne Davis from Asia Pacific PR agency of the year, Fleishman Hillard Asia Pacific.
