Berger, Reese Phifer professor, advertising and public relations, University of Alabama; Maria P. Russell, APR, Fellow PRSA, professor, public relations; and director, executive education programs, Syracuse University; and Keith Burton, partner, Brunswick Group, will share their insights about these issues and their implications.
