There are a couple of events coming up that I'll be at.
Firstly, we're organising a breakfast briefing that will be taking place in the LEWIS Media Centre, called "the value of PR in an off and online world." It's on 22nd November and the agenda is here. A lot of our clients and industry contacts are coming, and the speakers include Virgin, salesforce.com and Net Reputation. Let me know if you want to come.
Also, I'm excited about speaking at the forthcoming Upload 2007 in London on 21st and 22nd Feb. It's a conference dedicated to social media, user-generated content and crowdsourcing, and it'll be a big one. I'm moderating the first panel session of the event, which is on identifying how media owners need to evolve their business model to embrace client hunger for new media channels. Dean Hawkins of Homechoice, Tobias Oswald of SevenOne Intermedia and Stephan Uhrenbacher of QYPE are in the panel. Then I'm moderating the first session of day two, which is on the evolution of the media agency - evolving the traditional media agency model for the digital savvy generation of media and brand owners. With me on that one will be Bernard Balderston of P&G, Kieron Matthews of the Internet Advertising Bureau and Andrew Moody of ING Direct. You can register for that event here.
