Mark 2019 as the year robots, hackers and trolls jumped out of the pages of science fiction novels and into your day-to-day as a communications professional. Join us for the first monthly meeting of the year as we hear what experts from across the industry predict will be the groundbreaking changes and disruptive trends in 2019. In the panel discussion moderated by Dr. Bryan Reber, head of the advertising and PR department at the University of Georgia, you'll discover: 

  • How artificial intelligence is building smarter, higher-performing teams
  • Strategies to manage through a data breach, from the front-line communicators 
  • The power of social media to build community - and how to manage the trolls that come with it
  • How healthcare communications will change as America grays
  • How "fake news" will continue to change our relationship with the media
  • Tips to manage through the changing landscape of PR in 2019... and moving forward

Public relations practitioners must stay on top of the latest trends in the industry to provide relevant counsel and impactful results to our clients and stakeholders. Learn what to expect from the trend-setters themselves.
