CIPR to publish an anthology of modern-day public relations best practice
On Wednesday 3 February, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and Kogan Page are to publish ‘Chartered Public Relations: Lessons from Expert Practitioners’, as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the CIPR’s Royal Charter.
Edited by CIPR Past President Stephen Waddington Chart.PR MCIPR, the book is an anthology of modern-day public relations best practice from current Chartered Public Relations Practitioners.
The book makes a valuable contribution to the advancement of public relations thinking worldwide by addressing the most current discussions on topics including the shift to the open organisation, and the impact of the globalisation of markets in public relations.
Featuring contributions from 20 public relations experts across a range of sectors and companies including Specsavers, Thomson Reuters, Pielle Consulting and the University of Cambridge, it's intended to inspire a new wave of professionals to take up the challenge of achieving Chartered PR Practitioner status.
I hope that my year as President will be characterised as a period when the CIPR reasserted a commitment to professionalism as set out by the founders of the Institute of Public Relations (IPR) in 1948, and committed to statute through its Royal Charter in 2005.
This book is an important contribution to this effort, creating a substantive showcase of the work of Chartered PR Practitioners encouraging others to aspire to Chartered status, and celebrating public relations making the shift towards a clearer vision of professional standards.
An electronic sample chapter ‘Putting citizens at the heart of public relations: Public relations and public value’ by CIPR Past President, Paul Mylrea Chart.PR FCIPR, is now available to download.
Paperback copies of the book can now be pre-ordered from the Kogan Page website (RRP: £29.99), with e-books (RRP: £29.99) also available on publication from Amazon, and other reputable online booksellers.
