In our 19th #Firefly25 anniversary interview, we hear from Helen Dunne, editor of CorpComms Magazine. Helen looks back to 1988, when mobile phones didn’t exist and journalists had one story and one deadline every day. Looking to the future, Helen talks about how companies are becoming publishers themselves, as ‘content managers’ write the stories and bypass the journalists, reaching key stakeholders directly.

Our head of business and digital, Phil Szomszor, will be taking part in a CorpComms panel debate entitled “Coping With Social Media Crises” this Thursday morning, which is run in association Precise.

It is part of a series of Precise Exchange breakfast events and will focus on advice for comms professionals on the right tools and approach for dealing with online communications difficulties.

Phil will be on the panel alongside Mark Flanagan (Portland Communications), Nicola Green (Telefonica) and Richard Stokoe (London Fire Brigade). If you would like to attend this event, please contact If you can’t make the event, then you can still follow the action on Twitter by following CorpComms and Precise.
