CIPR issues updated Brexit guidance and announces member event with CBI

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today published updated guidance designed to support public relations professionals in preparing for the end of the Transition Period at the end of the year.

The guide summarises information relevant to the profession on matters such as data protection, copyright law, and travel. It also highlights the role public relations professionals can play in helping businesses prepare for the end of the Transition Period, including if the UK and the EU are unable to negotiate a Free Trade Agreement.

Free member 'Business and Brexit' event with the CBI

CIPR members will have the opportunity to attend an exclusive, free online presentation from the CBI on Tuesday 27 October, 2-3 pm.

The event will cover the current state of trade negotiations together with advice on how businesses can make preparations for the end of the Transition Period. The link to join the event will be in the weekly member email on Wednesday.

There will also be a series of Brexit events with a number of CIPR's Regional and Sector Groups announced soon.

There are few businesses and sectors that won't have their operations impacted at the end of the Transition Period - some more than others. The role of public relations is to support organisations and clients in navigating the complexities of leaving the EU, and to do that it is crucial that PR professionals familiarise themselves with the details of what this will mean. I'm delighted we are able to support members through this guide which provides an overview of where to begin that process.

The event with the CBI gives members a unique opportunity to hear about where we are in the trade negotiations, while the series of events we will be announcing with our regional and sectoral groups will provide members with an opportunity to engage in specific details to take back to their workplaces.
