WATCH: President Mandy Pearse’s May video update


In May’s update to members, President Mandy Pearse proudly reflects on a month where we joined forces with PRCA and ICCO in launching a new survey to address “the very real issue of mental health”. Mandy calls on members to help shape our future collaboration in addressing mental health challenges within the profession by completing the mental health survey.

Mandy highlights two key events; our first conference on the role of PR practitioners in tackling climate change and our second lobbying event with Dame Angela Eagle MP.
