This week, I attended 2 very important engagements in the UK. One was a four-day journalistic conference- Innovation in digital publishing during the COVID-19 Crisis courtesy of @newsrewired.The other one a #PR conversation on Wednesday night under the hashtag #PowerAndInfluence Image
2. I am glad that we are being deliberate about our commitment to #Equality and #Diversity.
I am sharing some of the lessons I picked from both engagements @MissChisomo @amandacomms @Advita_p @EllaMinty
3. Though these conversations might have been very emotive we must engage our communities in discussing experiences of racism, racial injustices including discrimination while learning from each other. Inclusion means going out to look for all voices because #AllVoicesMatter

No longer is it necessary to pay attention to my 2019-2020 ramblings/warnings of a global economic reset. Instead, as of June 3, 2020, you can now hear it directly from the source: the World Economic Forum (#WEF).

#2020Reset
#TheGreatReset
#4IR
#Nature4Sale
#IoT
The World Economic Forum: home of the #FourthIndustrialRevolution as designed and desired by the ruling classes in tandem with the world's most powerful and ruthless corporations and institutions.

#SavingCapitalism
#NewDealForNature
#Digitalization
#Blockchain
#COVID19
Leveraging #COVID19 (& global #protest) for all it's worth, the virus is indeed the new war on terror.

"The Great Reset" - "A better #capitalism and a better world—to help shape the recovery from COVID-19, the Forum has launched the Great Reset Initiative"

@evanderburg when you start to unpeel the public relations veneer from well-financed mainstream media campaign to impose #5G you will see there is PLENTY to worry about — & independent experts who actually know something are in sharp disagreement with #BigWireless

this .@CNN story claim:
@evanderburg @CNN

hereby challenge .@CNN to report #5Gfact: contrary to this blizzard of bland blanket corporate assurances, #BigWireless forced to admit to U.S. Senate committee hearing they aware of ***NO INDEPENDENT SCIENTIFIC STUDIES OVER #5G HAZARDS***

#MediaLiteracy
@evanderburg @CNN blumenthal.senate.gov/newsroom/press…

#BigTelecom, when actually on the griddle and presumably under oath, reluctantly admits industry is #FlyingBlind regarding human health effects.... they suspect but don’t want to know of the hazards.... #cancer #autism

I’m seeing a lot of #PR and #comms people tweeting support for #BlackLivesMatter and in the last 24 hours a few things have happened that I want to share… Before I go into details I wanted to touch on why I share, what I share on here.
Talking about race and racism you’ve experienced can be both traumatic and, weirdly, humiliating. I say “weirdly humiliating” because it shouldn’t be. As I’ve always said, racism shouldn’t be an ethnic minority problem but society’s problem.
But I recognise if you don’t talk, people can’t learn and people can’t do better. I always think about those with platforms even smaller than mine and feel a duty to do my bit.

We'll now be hearing from Penny Ehrhardt of @VicUniWgtn, who will be speaking to the @FairVoteCanada annual conference about how #ProportionalRepresentation changed New Zealand, and enabled a strong, cooperative response to #COVID19. #ElectoralReform #cdnpoli #fvc2020 (A thread.)
Ehrhardt: New Zealand is unicameral, and for ethnicity has 64% European background, 16% Maori, around 15% Asian, around 9% Pacific. Has had #MixedMemberProportional since the early 1990s. @FairVoteCanada #ElectoralReform #cdnpoli #fvc2020
(New Zealand has, what I feel, is the IDEAL electoral system for Canada. Closed-list #MixedMemberProportional. Has strong representation for Maori as well. Great track record of their voting system.) @FairVoteCanada #ElectoralReform #cdnpoli #fvc2020

In today's #DySiWebinar, @GOLINglobal's @bsniz and I talked progressive #PR and building brands from the inside out with a focus on people and #purpose. We mentioned some thoughtful leaders who are educating the market, and brands that lead by example. Wanted to pass those along.
@GOLINglobal's client @DoleSunshine put their #SunshineforAll purpose into action during the COVID-19 crisis. Teaming up with partners like @lyft, @kroger, @FeedingAmerica, and @SmoothieKing they created a powerful movement supporting frontline heroes.
And when it comes to your employees @DoleSunshine has seen the power of being people-first and purpose-driven. Read more from global CMO @rupendesai in @Lindsay_Stein's @CampaignLiveUS article.

Quebec #Cellphone Towers Damaged As COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories Grow

thank you .@GValiante & .⁦@CanadianPress⁩ for *not* blindly repeating ***false assurances by #Telus et al*** that there are no health questions re #5G
#cdnmedia

#thread 1/ ?? huffingtonpost.ca/entry/quebec-c…
with two overnight arrests just reported — apparently related to the recent spate of #celtowerfires in Quebec — #cdnmedia should nor be blindly parroting the #misinformation constantly spouted by #BigTelecom & its poodle #servile #CapturedRegulator .@GovCanHealth .....

a whole bunch of politicos are now jumping in.....

Sir Keith Joseph, Thatcher's Cummings, said (paraphrasing): "If we don't have a plan to deal with "stupid" we'll be consumed by "stupid". We won't win *against* "stupid", ever."

The right-wing came up with a plan... 1/4
2/4 "Let's stop trying to 'lead' and instead just say we'll give people what they say they want - there are a lot more stupid voters than not-stupid ones - we'll win forever - and we won't have to give them anything, really!"

That plan now has a name: populism. And it works.
3/4 It's why we now have a #Tory government led by unscrupulous, lying chancers. And that, in turn, is why #Brexit happened and the #NHS is on its knees, with the "U"K heading for split-up and oblivion.

OK, since I've pretty much finished 80% of the content on #Netflix, #PrimeVideo and #DisneyPlus (4 kids), I figured I'd take a break to share my all-time favorite movies about #publicrelations and #journalism. I hope it proves a worthy #bingewatch for you ...
Top 20 in reverse order, starting with No. 20 ...
#PhoneBooth (2003). An arrogant #PR guy spends an entire movie in a phone booth. Yes, I know there's no such thing as phone booths anymore. But if you're in PR and you're feeling a little claustrophobic these days, you'll relate.
19. #TheWizardofOz (1939). This foursome trudges all the way to Oz, kills the witch on wizard's orders, then finds out the wizard is a fraud. Somehow he recovers from this potentially career-ending discovery by giving his visitors a handful of trinkets and a speech. That's #PR.

How can startups cope with COVID? 🧠💡

By pooling our learnings and emerging stronger.

Here are some learnings from our co-founder @_Anshul at #SamosaTalks - hosted by @LloydMathias with @sanjaynath, @KetikaKapoor, @shankmurali and Rahul Agarwalla.

(1/7)
(2/7)

We were in the midst of a very interesting stage when #COVID-19 struck.

Wizikey had attained PMF, we had made some headway with overseas customers and were all set to welcome new team members too!

#IndiaFightsCorona #IndiaFightsCOVID19 #SaaS
(3/7)

But, the startup life is never predictable, and COVID-19 is our newest challenge. 💡

By virtue of being in the communications industry we were able to take some early measures, thanks to forewarnings from counterparts in China and the US.

Long Thread [Alert]

1/n Something big is up at @binance. First @Poloniex, then @steemit and now @CoinMarketCap. If we go by the reported news on the @TheBlock__ , this could be worth $400 Million. Assuming that it is not an #AprilFoolsDay prank...

theblockcrypto.com/post/60371/bin…
2/n Over the last 12 months, @cz_binance has acquired at least three companies - @BinanceJEX, @WazirXIndia, and @dapp_review. Looking at the big picture, it is a notable development as @cz_binance mops up the key players in the #decentralized fundraising space
3/n If you're looking to develop a #dapp, your best best is soon going to be the #Binance Blockchain. Why? Because it tacitly lets #developers know that it has the most well-oiled machinery in the much muddied #crypto space.

@moniconga @TomlinsonCJ @WhoresofYore 1. But it IS exactly trying to recreate history

Was this a Freudian slip:

"The show is not a historical documentary #PR"

As a tele-psychiatrist I'm sure you'd know!

No it's not a movie about a real event

But it's set in a real time

As was War of the Worlds Dr Who etc etc...
@moniconga @TomlinsonCJ @WhoresofYore 2. But while Scrooge, War Of The Worlds, Dr Who, etc are all clearly fantasies

They are fantasies where we suspend belief & our critical faculties

But they are not science fantasies set in other futures or on worlds

They are historical dramas set in real historical times...
@moniconga @TomlinsonCJ @WhoresofYore 3. Most people don't know much history

Historical dramas are only place they will see any history

While we all know THE STORY is A STORY

You wouldn't expect Victorian England to be peopled by characters dressed in togas or lycra cyclewear

You'd expect it to be reflect period

Let's talk #MediaConvergence #PR #Chatsessions
An outcome of tech advancements in #PR #SundayThoughts #PublicRelations #corporatecommunications #media #pakistan
- Reply, Likes and RT tweets in the thread and make sure to @PakistanPr
#Media convergence is the interlinking of computing and other information technologies, media content, media companies and communication networks @PakistanPr
It brings together the “three C's”—computing, communication, and content—and is a direct consequence of the digitization of media content and the popularisation of the Internet @PakistanPr

By "respecting" courts-confirmed corruption, fraud, lies & illegality that ought to have been dealt with instead, Johnson & Corbyn are overseeing the death of their respective ends of #CONLABKIP which will open the door for #Remain, #PR & the end of 2-party politics. Good.
#Brexit relies on a legal loop-hole. Eventually the voting public (now a majority for #Remain) will get to say what they think about "democracy" & government by-legal-loop-hole rather than by at least an attempt at principle.

@ByronYork @realDonaldTrump Major US brands have been encouraged to adopt financially suicidal marketing strategies by ultra liberal firms in #PR, principally Edelman edelman.com via #Edelman100 ranking. The #Nike #ColinKaepernick linkage is amplified in by Edelman marketing collateral.
@ByronYork @realDonaldTrump Rationale for corporate image association is based upon assumption that buyer choices are made based upon ideological concerns, rather than intrinsic features and benefits of product. #Edelman100 is expanded upon in "2018 Earned Brand Global Report"
edelman.com/sites/g/files/…
@ByronYork @realDonaldTrump Most recent mass market players in the liberally biased "image marketing" shift have been #AmexPride #Gillette and #Nike. While social activism is a vital force in American history, the attachment to corporate marketing strategy may not be in the best interest of shareholders.

Have you heard of #Hotelling’s Law? In a two party system, it says that you get most votes by minimising the political distance between the parties. It’s worked well in the past, but it’s about to bring an end to both #Labour and the #Tory party. 1/n
uk.mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/id…
Hotelling’s law worked really well for Tony #Blair. #Thatcher had moved the Tory party to the right, so #NewLabour had an opportunity to increase its vote share by also moving rightwards. 2/n
Politics had shifted. Both parties held broadly similar policies. Blair’s political stance, although to the left of Thatcher’s, was much further right than any Labour leader previously (or since). Labour was able to capture ground that the Tories had left unguarded. 3/n

Personal PR can add value to a freelancer's work. Now that you're an instant expert on X after publishing a story about it, how many ways can you talk about it & then get seen by other editors or producers, and maybe get more work? #Thread #PRforwriters #scicomm #amwriting #PR
Radio shows & some podcasts have producers: listen to recent eps then find their 'about us' page and send a short pitch to the person whose purview looks like a good fit for you. Here's one I booked myself onto recently, on a subject I cover for @mongabay cchange.net/2018/10/30/eri…
Say how your recent story about X is a good fit, given their previous coverage of X (demonstrating that you do your homework and are not in the business of wasting a personal finance #podcast producer's time with your pitch about squirrel intelligence). #prforwriters #scicomm #PR

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
