Meet the 70 at 70 - CIPR celebrates inspiring members

The CIPR has published a list of 70 members who've made an outstanding contribution to the Institute and the wider PR industry. 

70 at 70 features pioneering practitioners, alongside unsung CIPR members and volunteers from a range of professional backgrounds.

The unique project forms part of the CIPR's seventieth anniversary celebration.

At the start of this very special anniversary year, we wanted to celebrate the practitioners who regularly go above and beyond. Chosen by our membership and judged by an independent committee, we now have our fantastic 70 at 70. Thanks to everyone who gives their time so generously to help the industry and CIPR thrive.

The CIPR launched a call for nominations earlier this year for members who'd made a significant contribution in one of the following areas:

  • outstanding or exemplary public relations practice
  • volunteering and commitment to the PR community
  • entrepreneurship within the profession
  • development of ethical competence
  • thought leadership and authorship in public relations
  • academic research, teaching or training
  • trade journalism

Nominations were reviewed by an independent committee, comprised of members from a broad range of professional disciplines.
