The Global Alliance is a confederation of the world's major PR and communication management associations and institutions, representing 160,000 practitioners and academics around the world.
“The CIPR is already closely aligned with the Global Alliance – our Chartership assessment is built on the GA’s global professional standards. I am very pleased to be able to contribute to the ongoing work of raising the profile, capability and standing of our profession around the world. I am especially grateful to Professor Anne Gregory, past Chair of the GA and Past President of the CIPR, for her encouragement.”
“The CIPR has a long tradition of supporting the work of the Global Alliance and the appointment of Alastair to its Board allows us to further strengthen the ties we have with the world's leading organisation for professional PR institutes.”
Alastair’s term will include the GA’s World Public Relations Forum in Oslo, 2018.
