Fishwrap: Changing Media and PR . . . Plus a Great Pep Talk


[Wrapping up the week in three dots . . .]

I've done a lot of talking this week about changes in media and PR. From a big meeting with the largest Redmond based corporation, to Shift Communications in SF, to a delegation of corporate communications directors from large Japanese companies such as Toyota, at Ogilvy PR offices in San Francisco. Luca Penati MD of Ogilvy's Global Technology Practice led the conversation. Here's a clip:
