Cannespersand – June 2009

03 June 2009

In two weeks the PR industry will be part of Cannes Lions for the first time in 55 years. We thought we would celebrate with this Ampersand special.

In PR comes to Cannes… at last our CMO Tony Burgess-Webb asks why PR has taken so long to join the party and has all communications now become public relations.
Candace Kuss, EMEA director of interactive strategy (and reformed adperson), believes that PR is Late for the party, but ahead socially
With user-generated ads now all the rage, including the Mofilm awards sponsored by H&K, Marylee Sachs, our global marketing communications practice head, reports that UGC debuts at Cannes

If you are not going to Cannes this year but want to take part remotely you can join the Twitter Seminar we are hosting on Monday 22nd at 4pm with Biz Stone, co-founder by following @hillandknowlton and the #hkcannes hashtag on Twitter.
