The CIPR is committed to ensuring public relations is recognised as a management discipline and to widening understanding of the role it plays in achieving organisational success. The Future Practitioner Forum has been established to help us achieve this goal.

Drawing upon the thinking of the #FuturePRoof community, as well as practitioners and academics within CIPR membership, the remit is to look at how PR professionals can secure their place as trusted advisers to the CEO, the skillset this requires and how the Institute can best support practitioners as they progress throughout their career.

The forum will also identify the opportunities for public relations and how practitioners can best capitalise on these.
