PR community celebrates at #CIPR70 reception

More than a hundred senior public relations professionals gathered in Broadgate, London last night for a special reception celebrating the CIPR's seventieth anniversary. 

The reception marked the launch of Platinum, the CIPR's recently published best-seller, and 70 at 70honouring members who've made an outstanding contribution to the Institute and the industry. 

Authors of the crowdsourced book and members featured in 70 at 70 travelled from abroad and across the UK to join CIPR President Sarah Hall Chart.PR, FCIPR and Platinum editor Stephen Waddington for the special occasion.

My thanks and congratulations go to each and every one of our members involved in Platinum and 70 at 70. Last night was a special celebration marking 70 years of the CIPR with the volunteers who keep it relevant and forward-looking. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all the volunteers who help our community thrive.

Platinum is the story of the CIPR as told by its volunteer members. I’m grateful to the members who pitched ideas and the authors whose content has been included. The CIPR exists because of the commitment of its volunteer community. By contributing to Platinum or being recognised as part of the 70 at 70 community, CIPR members are driving professional standards of practice. It was fantastic to celebrate those contributions last night.
