    It’s a modern myth in the communications industry that being loud and exceptional is the (only) way to get attention for your messages. This myth is true for all pillars of communications, I believe – but especially for PR.

    It’s not often that you hear about “the cotton curtain” in modern tech circles. The phrase — referring to the political and social division of race between the American South and the rest of the country — feels pretty antiquated. But a vast political and social division still exists in public relations and the all-powerful tech world.

    This month, I was given the opportunity to travel down to sunny Miami to attend Hispanicize. I’ve been tracking this event (not conference, as clearly stated by organizer Manny Ruiz!) for most of my career and have seen it evolve into a weeklong convergence of the best and most active minds in the Hispanic market, whether it be in music, marketing or media. While I had heard tall tales of the crazy cluster that is Hispanicize, doing my homework on the who’s who of attendees, panels and events, brought the event to a manageable level full of snackable intel!

    For the past few months I have been talking to business and media around the world about the importance of authenticity in building successful brands, based on the insights from Cohn & Wolfe's Authentic Brands 2014 Report. It's been great to see business leaders, brand strategists and serious media taking such an interest in the subject. We are now in the process of planning the 2015 report, which will explore in greater depth the powerful idea that 'truth is the only sustainable competitive advantage'.
