Mastering the art of technology PR

by Hollie Auburn, PR Consultant

Today, technology changes so fast and there’s no denying that we have allowed our lives to revolve around and rely on it. We live in a world fuelled by drones and autonomous cars, from smart speakers, to robotics in nearly every industry. That’s why our role at Proactive International PR is becoming more important than ever, to help position emerging technology organizations at the forefront of their field, through the developing of strategies and stories to place them in the present.

One of the greatest benefits of working on tech PR is that we get to glimpse into the future well before it arrives.

In our case, we get to script the next chapter before it happens because we understand exactly how our clients are shaping the technology industry.
