Navigating the Ever-Changing Media Landscape for Authentic Brand Storytelling

The media landscape has been evolving and is catalyzed by new technology and the changing reading habits of the consumers. Nowadays consumers are consuming news and information from multiple sources across different devices, and are spending more time online than offline. Media outlets and companies are undergoing tremendous changes to make their business offerings more relevant to the ever-changing and digitalized landscape. It is also becoming even more imperative to compete for a share of voice online with the popularity of social media and the emergence of alternative media channels such as KOL and influencer.


By adopting an integrated communications approach that skillfully leverages the uniqueness of different media channels and mastering good communication techniques to build good media rapport, PR and marketers will then be transformed and become an authentic storyteller for their brands.


At our upcoming Media Coffee, three distinguished speakers: Luisa Tam, Senior Editor of South China Morning Post;

Karen Tam, Assistant GM, Promotions & Marketing of Harbour City and Jenny Chan, ex-TV anchor and Director of JC Pixie Media will share their insights and discuss the following topics:


Topics covered during the session include:

  • The evolution of media landscape in Hong Kong and its impact on media engagement today.

  • Case study on Harbour City – How it becomes an iconic landmark and well-known brand in Hong Kong by adopting an integrated communications and media outreach strategy.

  • Factors that brands need to consider and be aware of before/after engaging KOLs and influencers.
