Keynote speakers, presentation outlines:

John Parkinson: 'The power of publics'
Sponsored by Unitec

John will focus on what PR can do to facilitate public discussions that are genuinely bottom up rather than top down, and why we should want to do such a crazy thing. His presentation will have lots of examples, from the Ground Zero site, state budget setting in Europe and South America and health care reform in the US, to local context. While lots of the examples are public sector, this is not something that the private and voluntary sectors can ignore - in a world of Twitter, all corporate communication is bottom-up to some extent, and that's a great thing for brands that can adapt. 

Jane Sullivan: San Francisco's America's Cup - Loved, hated, success or failure?
Sponsored by ATEED 

Jane will discuss:

  • Setting the stage - How the city of San Francisco won the America's Cup
  • Planning and promoting the America's Cup
  • World Series Racing
  • From bad to worse, to worse, to the best AC finals ever
  • Lessons learned
