A good read for this weekend!
Although this newsletter has a focus on tools, this week I wanted to share a free e-Book full of top professional insights from Public Relations practitioners from across the globe.
As you might know, I volunteer as President of the International Public Relations Association and every year we publish a collection of thought leadership articles on several topics related to our profession.
This edition contains 16 IPRA Thought Leadership (ITL) essays, written by internationally respected experts in their fields and provide valuable insight and forthright opinion on the key trends and live issues that truly matter in the fast-changing world of communications.
This 69 pages e-book anthology contains 16 outstanding articles published in 2020, many of which deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
This is the new tool for your arsenal

Monitoring tips from NATO
The NATO Strategic Communications Unit just published their new report "Social Media Monitoring: A Primer" which provides an overview of social media monitoring & reviews tools and services, particularly focusing on disinformation and information influence.
Update about the previous issue
I had amazing feedback on the last issue of this newsletter where I did an in-depth review of my favorite tool of last year (and this year probably). It's called New Zenler and is an all in one online communication and information platform.
They just released a comparison chart, and I wanted to share it here since so many of you were interested in knowing more.
