It's clear that the tremendous growth of the digital world has changed our lives forever. Its impact has impacted the industry, fundamentally changing the way businesses operate, work and communicate.
Ironically, the PR industry has yet to fully grasp this dramatic shift. At that time, digital media and mobile infrastructure was still in its infancy, even in developed markets. Today, in developed and developing markets, this infrastructure is fully established and the capacity and speed of its components are constantly increasing."
