International Communications Strategy Developments in Cross-Cultural Communications, PR and Social Media
by Silvia Cambié and Yang-May Ooi
Published by Kogan Page and shortlisted for the FT Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.
Globalisation and the interactive web are transforming the world of communications beyond recognition.
Communicators and PR practitioners are asked to develop strategies for markets they have never worked in and audiences they are unable to relate to.
“International Communications Strategy” examines the cross-cultural challenges currently facing communication practitioners. It zooms in on three major trends:
- Multinationals from emerging economies are globalising aggressively and reshaping world-wide industries. They are developing new communication practices that will soon dominate our way of working.
- Technology and social media are creating new on-line cultures and new audiences for communicators.
- Social entrepreneurship is changing business and challenging the collective thinking. It needs communicators to spread its message on a global scale.
The book contains best practices and hands-on case studies from a number of countries including India, Sudan, Brazil, Russia, Saudi Arabia and China.
“A thought provoking and exceptionally well written book on the future of Public Relations with the emergence of social media, globalization of Corporate Social Responsibility, and growth of emerging markets. The book reads like a suspense novel!”
