FIR Video Interview: Rick Murray, Edelman – March 15, 2008

The EuroBlog 2008 conference took place in Brussels, Belgium, last week. Described as an event focused on “Social media and the future of PR: New ideas, new research, new business,” the two-day event brought together over 100 people from the academic and practitioner worlds from across Europe and the USA.

In this first FIR Video Interview, Neville Hobson talked briefly with Rick Murray, President of Edelman Digital, about the key messages for PR practitioners resulting from topics and themes discussed at EuroBlog 2008.
