Communication On Top: Stephen Davies
I am going to represent Russia at Communication On Top, a world forum in Davos and the major event in the world of communications in February 2011. The goal of the Forum is to provide a platform for discussion on the future development of communications and their role in business and politics. I will be speaking about electronic government and present a paper “Why can electronic government in Russia and the BRIC countries become a stimulus for economic development?”
Every week I’ll present you one key-speaker of Davos Forum «Communication on Top». Today this person will be Stephen Davies. He is an online communications consultant based out of the UK. He is the founder and managing director of 3WPR – an online communications consultancy. He has worked on a number of online PR and social media campaigns for national and multinational companies and currently consults with a broad scope of clients ranging from a B2B FTSE 100 to a number of well-known consumer brands. Stephen currently acts as a consultant with Action Global Communications, the only global PR network to focus specifically in the emerging markets and
has worked on a number of initiatives in Eastern Europe, Russia and the UAE.
His professional blog – www.stedavies.com — has been recognised by industry professionals around the world and was named ‘Europe’s number one PR blog’ according to the rankings given by US publication, Adage. In 2009 he was added to the PR Week Power Book – which claims to include the top 1% most “powerful and inspirational” UK PR people. Previously he worked for the world’s largest independent PR firm, Edelman, in London and European online distribution company, RealWire.
