FIR Presents Inside PR 372: Mesh Conference with Mark Evans
Roving reporter, Martin Waxman, recently caught up with him.
He began the conversation by talking about the biggest surprises Mark has seen since the conference started.
And, as a former journalist, Martin wanted to know what’s been the biggest change in media since he was writing, and why pitches from PR professionals are still terrible.
Mark handles the latter question extremely well, while providing some great feedback on the things PR pros should consider, even with the immense amount of pressure we face from clients.
They talk about the media stream at mesh, which is the brain child and passion of Matthew Ingram, about the trend toward the new media companies introducing newswires to capture citizen journalists, and the y talk about the conference.
You’ll find what he has to say about each of these speakers really interesting. He talks about how Neil’s cyborg activism will help you think differently about how you live your life and how you do your job because it gives you a different perspective. How Mark, with the help of Storyful – the company he founded – is standing in the social “grayness” to help us determine what is actually news and what is not. And how Stewart salvaged a business from complete failure by doing a strategic pivot.
It’s a good episode you don’t want to miss!
Disclosure: Thornley Fallis is helping out on the PR for this year’s Mesh conference.
