Comms for a Digital World

Jon Snow

"We are living in the age of revolution... The consequence of revolutions is that it's left to NGOs to pick up the pieces."  Jon Snow, Channel 4 News and Media Trust trustee.

In November 2011, Media Trust explored how digital communications could help charites fundraise, recruit volunteers and raise their profile. And how these online efforts could be integrated with existing offline PR and marketing activities. Featuring expert speakers from Google, Facebook, Bell Pottinger, Nominet Trust and Samaritans.
