The Robinson Report – The Death Of The Expert

“A man hears what he wants to hear and he disregards the rest” – Simon & Garfunkel (1964)

Now more than ever, no experts exist.

Driven by technology, anyone can build their case (opinion) on virtually any subject.

Public Health ‘Experts’ – no ‘expert’ can exist on Covid-19 as it’s a new illness. It’s difficult to locate anyone who is correct on predictions.

Journalism – anyone – you – with an iPhone is a now a journalist.

Film, edit programs, publishing platforms. All free of charge. 

BOOM – you’re a published ‘expert’.

Podcaster – No ‘experts’. 

On-going debate on length, use of videos, where to post, do clicks mean consumption?

Customized, creative and unique.

Not better.

Fresh ideas that emerge from local strategic planning and tactical guidance.
And adversity.

Guess what.

You’re the expert.
