Comms Chat Student Special

A weekly online chat for PR professionals is to host a student special next week on 18th October.

CommsChat is a weekly discussion held on Twitter through the use of a hashtag (#commschat) with a different theme each week. Set up by Adam Vincenzini and Emily Cagle, the chat regualrly welcomes guest hosts, with the student special being hosted by Jane Crofts, PR  lecturer at the University of Lincoln.

The chat will take place between 8pm and 9pm, October 18th. The question for the student special is ‘Does PR have a duty to tell the truth?’ – so brush up on your ethics!

Questions likely to be asked during the chat are:

1. As a PR professional are you the paid mouth or corporate conscience?

2. In providing PR counsel to your organisation or client what do you hope to achieve?

3. Is PR about persuasion? So, where does truth sit in that?

4. Where does the public interest sit in this? Or do you pander to what is interesting to the public?

5. What is truth – will you still love me in the morning?

Make sure to track #commschat in a search, and follow Jane on Twitter. For more information head over to the Comms Chat pre-read page.


  1. Well, it was busy, it was fun (sometimes funny too) and I met some new people from around the world (and some from around the corner).

    It’s very much a free-for-all though with no threading of conversations. I guess we’re all still learning.

    Thanks Jane, Emily, Adam et al.

  2. I briefly joined in with the discussions but mostly found it interesting reading over different thoughts and arguments. A great session. At some points it go so busy that I was finding it difficult to keep up with all the tweets!

  3. Good blog! I really love how it’s easy on my eyes as well as the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which should do the trick! Have a nice day!
