CIPR President, Mandy Pearse Chart PR, FCIPR
This is a great offer and a brilliant addition to the suite of CIPR member benefits. I'm really pleased to be able to share something which so tangibly supports members. In only a short time Tortoise has become an authoritative voice in the media exploring the issues around the big news stories of the day. This offer gives members access to that insight, and the opportunity to be part of those discussions. I hope it proves a useful - and enjoyable - benefit to you all.
