Professional Issues in Communication

Ethics & strategy are the two most important characteristics of effective communication in the twenty-first century. Today’s public communication industries – including public relations, journalism, marketing and lobbying to name the most prominent – require tools to become more conscious of how a focus on ethics is integral to strategy.

I focus on bringing resources to educators and professionals to help them to become more conscious of the effects that their professional communication efforts have on society.

I am also interested in how digital publishing has had a significant impact on how new ideas are communicated. Innovations in academic publishing underpin this interest. ~ Professor Parsons

Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them. Nathaniel Hawthorne
