About the event:

The proliferation of new media and mobile technologies presents both opportunities and challenges for communication. Despite breakthroughs in technology, the dilemma of oversaturation of messages in communication is vast and challenging.

In order to ensure that messages cut through, a deeper understanding of your audience’s media usage behaviour, decision making processes, emotional state, community membership and preferences is essential. By applying and understanding psychological perspectives, media and communication professionals can make informed, evidence-based decisions with regard to the selection of the media and communication strategies that they use, thus ensuring enhanced communication effectiveness.
