Anne Nicholls becomes 200th Chartered PR Practitioner
Education specialist, Anne Nicholls Chart.PR, MCIPR has become the UK's 200th Chartered PR Practitioner, following an arduous assessment yesterday which saw 11 other PR professionals earn the CIPR's highest grade of accreditation.
Members were assessed on their skills, knowledge and competencies in ethics, strategy and leadership by a team of senior practitioners, led by Paul Noble Found.Chart.PR FCIPR.
The eleven new Chartered Public Relations Practitioners are:
- Brittany Breslin Chart.PR, MCIPR
- Lorraine Bridges Chart.PR, MCIPR
- Koray Camgoz Chart.PR, MCIPR, DipCIPR
- Karen Floyd Chart.PR, MCIPR, DipCIPR
- Peter Holt Chart.PR, MCIPR
- Andrea Kennedy Chart.PR, MCIPR
- Julie McIvor Chart.PR, MCIPR
- Robert Okunnu Chart.PR, MCIPR, DipCIPR
- Rachel Owen Chart.PR, MCIPR
- Deborah Regal Chart.PR, MCIPR
- Claire Sims Chart.PR, MCIPR, DipCIPR
It was a really challenging - yet but surprisingly fun - day! The assessment made me reflect my own experience and practice, which I found extremely useful. All the effort was worth it in the end and I'd thoroughly recommend it to other members.
Chartered status represents the very highest level of professional excellence in our industry. That's why our assessment process is robust and comprehensive. Not everyone passes their Chartership Assessment, but those that do prove to their clients, colleagues and the public that they operate at the very highest professional standard.
I'd like to congratulate our twelve new Chartered Practitioners who've joined a community of ethically competent, strategic professionals. It’s our aim to become a predominantly chartered profession within 10 years and I'd urge all members to learn more about the process and what it takes to become a Chartered PR professional.
