How many times have you tried to explain to your friends and family what public relations actually is?
Nowadays, the lines are blurry and public relations seems to encompass a much wider range of strategies and media as ever used before.

Although the term will be officially redefined in the dictionary, I think leading PR professionals will continue to constantly evolve and redefine themselves.
