As we continue to celebrate the Institute’s 75th anniversary, Influence magazine returns with an autumn edition rich in both content and context. This issue underscores the positive and transformative potential of PR, particularly at a time of crisis. Whether it’s through Dr Jon White’s insights into the role of reconciliation in high-level decision-making, Kitty Finstad’s poignant piece on the need to reframe the discourse around grief, or Ryan Herman’s play-by-play of how Hollywood breathed a new lease of life into a struggling non-league football outfit; this edition has something for everyone.

At Influence we are always looking to deliver the highest quality and most engaging content and this issue certainly does not disappoint. Take some time to get lost in these comms stories and, as always, let us know what you think.
