Justin Green, GA President said: ”Technology shapes how we deliver public relations and at times revolutionises the way information spreads. Written language, the printing press, film, radio, television, the internet, and social media all changed the way people communicate across the globe. Today emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and the metaverse may do so yet again. Public relations practitioners must understand and harness the technology to provide information for public good. This month will help them do just that.”
