The Future Of Public Relations In The Age Of Social Media, Fake News & Global Crises- Ayeni Adekunle

So much is happening across the world and Public Relations (PR) is about the truth and telling a good story. Everyone loves a well-put together story.
From one generation to the other, we have preserved history through storytelling but not every story has the same ending.
PR in this age, from where we’re coming from to where we’re going especially, is about building communities, brands, businesses, governments and enterprises through good storytelling.
Watch Ayeni Adekunle speak, on the Africa Communications Leadership Series | Online Webinar, about The Future Of Public Relations In The Age Of Social Media, Fake News & Global Crises.

 

This Is Dangerous!

This is dangerous

Locking eyes with strangers.

I see the danger

‪In looking at beings without really seeing them

‪I see teenagers ‬
‪vulcanizers ‬
‪traders‬

‪I see men and women going here and there

Doing this and that

‪The hawker with baby on back and load on head‬

The swagged out boy selling plantain chips‬

Locking eyes with strangers‬

Looking out from my car windows‬

Trying to read minds‬

‪Wondering if they see mine‬

Is it not dangerous‬
‪To see so many people‬
‪And never see them?
