Public relations graduates celebrate at ceremony in London
On Friday 10 May, over 20 CIPR Diploma graduates celebrated with colleagues, friends and family at CIPR Public Relations Centre, Russell Square, London.
Graduates were treated to a keynote speech from CIPR Chartered Practitioner, Emma Leech FCIPR. Emma provided inspiration to the graduates by highlighting how studying for qualifications, attending training and undertaking CPD are essential, not only for their career progression but also personal development.
These graduates come from a cohort of over 632 public relations graduates from CIPR qualifications in 2012. The successful candidates included 199 gaining the CIPR's premier Diploma qualification; 133 receiving the Advanced Certificate; 185 obtaining specialist qualifications in internal communications, public affairs and crisis communications; and 115 passing the Foundation Award.
This year’s CIPR Graduation Ceremony was a perfect culmination for CIPR graduates who could celebrate their achievements with colleagues, friends and family in a relaxed atmosphere. Congratulations once again go to all those who worked so hard to achieve their CIPR qualifications and we'd like to wish them every success in their careers.
