I’m still in Dublin following yesterday’s PRII conference at which I spoke about PR and social media.
I gather all the presentations will soon be online at the PRII website, I guess sometime next week.
It was a terrific event. The venue was the ballroom at the Conrad Hotel, a pretty big room. It was packed; I’d say there were at least 150 people representing the PR business in Ireland, agency and client sides.
I’ll have a post with some thoughts about the conference once I’m back in the UK. Loads of photos, too, which I’ll upload to Flickr.
We’ve been staying at Stauntons on The Green, a guesthouse-type hotel. Very comfortable and a place I’d definitely come back to. Free wifi, too, although the signal doesn’t reach to the bedrooms so I’ve been using the 3 mobile broadband modem which the folk at 3mobilebuzz enabled to work for me here in Ireland. Thanks again, guys.
Today has been one of relative relaxation. Laura and I spent the morning meandering around the centre of Dublin, dodging a rain shower here and there. Planning to take one of the 90-minute sightseeing bus tours tomorrow before heading back to the UK.
Bernie Goldbach has been a tremendous host, showing us the evening sights around the Temple Bar area on Thursday evening. He was at the conference yesterday with a variety of gadgets to record audio and video.
So, a wholly enjoyable experience on this trip to Dublin, my first time back here for any length of time in about 12 years.
Next – the meetup at 4.30pm today.
