This year of all years we could do with ending on a positive note. The challenges we face globally and in society might not be going away anytime soon but, for a few days, I want to be able to celebrate the incredible diversity that exists within our profession. The Pros Winter Series won't be ducking away from the issues but will showcase great work, celebrate creativity and provide an inclusive, dynamic space to engage with the big topics from Black Lives Matter to Covid-19, Sinophobia to the US General Election.

I want to thank the CIPR for their continued support and hope many members join us for what promises to be a fantastic series.
