New Autumn issue of Influence out now

The Autumn issue of the CIPR’s award winning Influence magazine is out today.  

Packed full of exclusive articles and interviews, the latest edition includes features on the vital role PR played in communicating the passing of the Queen, how ‘boomerang’ employees can offer a solution to the talent crisis facing the industry, why practitioners must capitalise on the rise of audio, and - 25 years since its launch - a review of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. 

CIPR members can journey into the fluctuating American political landscape as City AM editor Andy Silvester shines a comms light on what to expect from the US elections, while with a more immediate focus, readers can learn everything they need to know about designing an ESG communications strategy. 

The latest ‘Access’ series of interviews gives members the chance to discover what editors are focusing on for 2023 with Former Downing Street adviser and host of the ‘Jimmy's Jobs of the Future’ podcast, Jimmy McLoughlin, editor of Management Today, Kate Magee, and founder and editor of ‘Country and Town House’, Lucy Cleland.

It has been an extraordinary few months – particularly in the UK where a period of political and economic instability clashed with a period of reflection following the passing of the Queen. It has been a time in which PR has played a central role. 

In this issue we look back at the lessons learned from the elegant comms around the Queen’s funeral and what we can learn from 25 years of The Considerate Constructors Scheme. And we look forward, offering insight and practical help to pressing issues from developing ESG strategies and to navigating the industry’s talent crisis. It is unlikely we’ll see another time quite like this but what we know for sure is, whether it’s politicians “getting the comms wrong” or the incredible efforts of comms teams across the country after the Queen’s death, the role of PR is likely to stay in the spotlight. 

Thank you to all the contributors and interviewees in this issue. It’s a great read and I hope you find it useful and enjoyable. As always, please do let us know your thoughts.
