Renuka Salwan, Chairperson, PRCI, Chandigarh Chapter, said, “Social media chatter is instantaneous, non-stop, and ubiquitous. Ironically, social media is no longer about mere ‘socialising’. The concept of social networking has now moved to a complete different level wherein consumers, brands and marketers – all have a distinct role to play. In an era of social activeness, a single wrong decision can lead to social death.”

Narvijay Yadav, Joint Secretary, PRCI, Chandigarh Chapter, said, “The session will be attended by those engaged in branding, marketing, customer relations, community engagement, public relations, media sales, business development, etc. On this occasion, some of the social bloggers would also share their success story and how they achieved their goals using varied social media tools.”

PRCI national president N D Rajpal, J K Menon of S G Interactives, Singapore and Tata Steel corporate communications head Yogesh Joshi will be present at the seminar. For registration interested people may call on 0172- 5016581, 5000078.
