The digital future is upon us – PR will always be a profession driven by people but, as we step closer into the digital world, understanding and preparing for the changes to the day-to-day practice is crucial. This conference will cover developments in legislation, technological advances, the future workplace and, just as importantly, asks how do you switch off in a digital world?
