CIPR launches Fresh series of bite-size briefings

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has launched ‘Fresh,’ a series of practical hour-long events for practitioners in the first few years of their public relations careers.

The first event in the series ‘Writing for different platforms,’ on Thursday 7 March will be led by Jon Silk, Head of European Digital Strategy at Bite Communications, giving delegates the opportunity to discover the key to writing punchy, powerful copy for a range of channels including press, web and social media platforms.

Further confirmed dates in the series are:

  • Planning and managing a PR campaign with Peter Chipchase, Creative Director at John Doe – Thursday 11 April
  • PR on a low budget with Laura Townshend, Senior Media Officer at Shelter – Thursday 16 May

Sessions in the second half of the year will be announced in due course.

Delegate places are £10 + VAT for CIPR Members and £12.50 + VAT for non-members and can be booked via our dedicated Fresh page on the CIPR website.

It is essential that we provide young professionals and those new to the profession a solid foundation of learning and development at the start of their careers. In a fast-changing world, individuals need to stay ahead to reach their career potential and employers need to be assured that their staff have the right skills for business and organisational success. We hope this series delivers the building blocks to achieve just that.
