FIR Speakers and Speeches: Neville Hobson on Reputation Management at Internet Speed

PRIIOn April 26, 2012, FIR co-host Neville Hobson gave a keynote presentation at this year’s annual conference of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII) in Dublin. The overall conference theme was Reputation Management in the Age of Digital.

Could we genuinely have foreseen the extent to which technological innovations would have disrupted our way of working? asked the PRII. How social and digital media, in particular, would have given rise to consumer power and citizen journalism? Or that we would face unprecedented competition from a new wave of competitors?

These are powerful themes that were touched in every presentation and discussion. The PRII video-recorded every conference session (if you’re a PRII member, you can view the videos in the member area on the PRII website). They’ve kindly agreed to the audio of Neville’s presentation - called Reputation Management at Internet Speed - being made available to you in this FIR Speakers & Speeches podcast. You’ll get the most from it if you view the presentation deck as you listen, embedded below (or, if you don’t see it, view it at Slideshare).

FIR Speakers and Speeches: July 2011 SF Curators Salon

Get the episode:

image

Tom Foremski (of Silicon Valley Watcher and Oliver Starr (chief evangelist from Pearltrees)started the SF Curators Salon a few months back. It’s an informal gathering of folks from the Bay Area who are interested in content curation in all its various forms. The July 27 meeting featured brief presentations from Christine McCaull, one of the organizers of TEDx San Francisco, and Ken E. Kaplan, who works on Intel’s Free Press. Tom Abate from the San Francisco Chronicle was also scheduled to present but was unable to attend, so Foremski covered some of the Chronicle’s curation activities in his absence.

The recording was made on a Marantz PMD-620 digital recorder that Shel held in his hand during the presentation and subsequent discussions. The session was held at PeopleBrowsr’s offices just next to the I-80 freeway. The audio file has been processed to ensure clarity, but there is still some buzz in the background. The file is edited lightly for length.

The SF Curators Salon Facebook Group is an open Group.
