I'm delighted to have achieved CIPR Chartered Practitioner status. On reflection, the assessment really boosted my confidence and helped me to consolidate my thinking around ethics, strategy and leadership. I particularly enjoyed networking with the other comms professionals on the day and listening and learning from their experiences.

It’s a fantastic milestone to reach 300 Chartered Practitioners and I would like to congratulate each of those who have passed the most recent assessment. With your newly acquired status you have demonstrated your ability to operate strategically and have committed to maintaining the highest standards of professional practice. As we work towards becoming a predominantly chartered profession I would encourage all eligible members to consider getting Chartered, CIPR's highest grade of accreditation.
