The PRide Awards are fast-approaching and I am delighted we have two presenters of such calibre to reflect on the achievements of the public relations profession over the last two years. Following a break in 2020, we're back and ready to celebrate the varied, creative and important work demonstrated by our industry. I hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be an exciting couple of days.
