I don't usually write about Hill & Knowlton Canada, my professional home, since my posts reflect my point of view and not necessarily H&K's. Besides I like focusing on writing about the intangibles of reputation and corporate communications.
However, I will make an exception to say how delighted I am that well-known social media innovator David Jones is joining our digital team. David blogs at PR Works and has jointly hosted 81 episodes of the Inside PR podcast. As a company, we are moving to the next stage in providing counsel on social media to our clients; that is, developing effective strategies rather than talking endlessly about what social media is and why we should pay attention. With the leadership tandem of David Jones and Brendan Hodgson, and the energy of the other members of our digital team, we are even better prepared to make the leap.
