The New PR in London

    November 9, 2006

Heading into London this afternoon for the Delivering The New PR conference tomorrow.

I’m looking forward to meeting up again with Philip Young, Tom Murphy, Stuart Bruce and Chris Rushton for the fifth in this series of one-day conferences.

Over the past year, we’ve helped quite a few communicators around the UK expand their knowledge of what social media can help them achieve in the practice of public relations.

Missing from our presenters’ line-up this time is Elizabeth Albrycht who is somewhat preoccupied with a few things including an imminent new member of her family.

We’ll toast you at tonight’s speakers’ dinner, Elizabeth!

As Elizabeth can’t be with us, Philip and I will be taking Elzabeth’s presentation slot on networking.

I’ll be adding some perspectives on virtual communities like Second Life.

Today’s edition of the FIR podcast won’t include me live with Shel.

I sent him a recorded contribution this morning which he’ll include in the show, which he’s recording with guest presenter Leesa Barnes.

Being on the road means that I’m going to miss taking part in a briefing today from Dell re an announcement they’re making in conjunction with the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA).

I won’t give the game away; just pay attention to Direct2Dell from about 5pm UK time today.

On the road also means I’ll miss Second Thursday in Second Life today which is being hosted by Eric Rice in the Hipcast Conference & Expo Center in Second Life.

A bummer to miss that one.

More later.
