Sarah Hall reflects on 'action-packed' six months in mid-year President's Report
The CIPR has published the second of four quarterly President's Reports from Sarah Hall Chart.PR, FCIPR, benchmarking the Institute's performance in 2018.
Q2 highlights include collaborative initiatives with the Confederation for British Industry (CBI) aimed at strengthening public relations' standing as a strategic management function.
Other areas of progress include the work of the CIPR's Artificial Intelligence Panel. The panel's research has significantly improved understanding of AI across the global PR community.
The 10-page report also looks ahead to key events in Q3, notably the eagerly anticipated Northern Conference and the CIPR Elections in the Autumn.
Being your CIPR President is a privilege and an honour. I’ve really enjoyed working with the dedicated team at Russell Square and our fantastic volunteers on your behalf over the past six months. It’s thanks to them that your Institute stays in tune with your needs and remains forward-thinking and relevant. This report shares some our highlights from April to June, along with a look at what’s yet to come.
