Listen below: There's always room for improvement. When it comes to PR, there's no escaping this fact. So what can PR people do to ensure they're upping their game? Well, as ever, adding new skill strings to your professional bow is always a good way to start. We spoke to Stephen Waddington, digital and social media director at Ketchum, about how the skills set in PR is changing.
