PR represented on British Chamber Board by CIPR member

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) congratulates Liz Willingham MCIPR on her appointment to the Board of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).

The founder of CIPR-award winning agency, Liz Lean PR, describes the appointment as “a fantastic way for the PR industry to be represented” at the top table of the Chambers which represents over 75,000 businesses. The CIPR, a member of the London Chambers of Commerce and Industry, has organised a meeting with Liz to discuss recent work – including our latest Brexit campaign, #PRPays campaign, the Client Advisor Service and our guide to crisis communications for terrorist related events - relevant to the BCC as we continue with our mission to promote the value of public relations to business.

Alastair McCapra, CIPR Chief Executive
Many congratulations to Liz from all at CIPR. It's encouraging to see PR recognised at the top table of one of the most influential business organisations with the ability to represent the profession across the country. We look forward to discussing opportunities in how to work together for the benefit of both bodies and our respective members.

Liz Willingham MCIPR, founder Liz Lean PR
I am really proud to be joining the BCC board which has such an important role in representing the voice of business across the UK, especially in a challenging period of our history, as the world of business has a critical influence on society. There will be opportunities I’m sure to share thoughts and campaigns and experiences across our two organisations.
