Message from the IPRA President: A moment of reflection December 2018

Amost three years ago, at an event in The Hague, The Netherlands, attended by IPRA Board members and several past Presidents, I assumed the presidency of IPRA.  In a brief speech, I expressed my appreciation for being chosn to be the symbolic figurehead of IPRA.  After all, coinciding with this was the ending of my full-time career in public relations.  I wondered out loud, hopefully without criticizing myself so that those present would object, if I wasn't too old, if IPRA shouldn't have someone in the midst of her (sic) career as President.

It’s just over 2 weeks ago that judges for the 2018 IPRA Golden World Awards convened in Brussels to determine this year’s winners. Like always the meeting, lasting all day, proved to be one of the highlights in the volunteer work these judges put in at IPRA. Settling down throughout the hours of evaluation of shortlisted entries in 37 categories, the judges held many spirited discussions on their individual merits. Whoever would have opportunity to wander around the clustered groups of judges would hear mention of trends and views of the application of current communication strategies. The entries come literally from around the world, representing in total 42 countries from the winners shortlist alone. Hence the assignments and challenges of the shortlisted entries vary widely. As do chosen solutions.
