This should be of interest for those curious about the power of the “new media” in today’s communications field, especially given the prominence it has attained in the aftermath of the Mar 8 General Elections.
The Public Relations Consultants’ Association of Malaysia (PRCA Malaysia), in collaboration with The Star Online and Asian Centre for Media Studies (ACMS), is organising a forum on Does New Media Influence The Way We Communicate Today?, on April 9.
The talk, part of the PRCA Malaysia’s PR Leadership Series, aims to explore the fundamental changes in audiences as well as in the communication medium used to reach them, and the way new media helps shape their opinions.
The forum will open with Text 100 International chief executive officer Aedhmar Hynes, who will speak on Peer Media and the Communications Industry.
Also speaking are Raslan Sharif (Senior Editor, The Star Online) on the subject From Old Media to New: The Star’s Experience, and Michael A. Fredericks (Portal Coordinator, AllMalaysia.Info) on the subject of The All Malaysian Bloggers Project (AMBP).
Participants will have an opportunity to interact and discuss with prominent bloggers such as Su Ann [from Nuffnang], Paul Tan and Kimberly Low, who will be giving their views on how bloggers perceive public relations. This session will be moderated by Jeremy Woolf, Peer Media Lead of Text 100 Asia Pacific.
The talk is happening at The Star’s Cybertorium, located at Level 2, Menara Star, 15 Jalan 16/11, 46350 Petaling Jaya.
Payment Options: Entrance fee is RM30 for PRCAM members and RM50 for non-PRCAM members, inclusive of coffee break. Corporate members of PRCAM may register 10 consultants and/or guests at members’ rate.
