I am delighted to be CIPR's 100th Chartered PR Practitioner. The whole process was a great learning experience and I feel I have gained both confidence and a new perception in some key issues as a result of going through it.

It is very important PR becomes a recognised profession and the process of becoming a Chartered Practitioner for me is a crucial step in getting the recognition we deserve.
