Message from the IPRA President: Dispatches from Abroad June 2016

It is not uncommon for organisers of PR conferences in countries around the world to seek endorsement of IPRA for their programs. There are guidelines for these arrangments, and it is one of these that I would like to share with you. The President of IPRA will usually make a contribution to the conference in question. Thus I have traveled in the past few months to countries geographically and culturally as far apart as Kazakhstan, Nigeria and Iceland.

IPRA President and the GWA

Last week in Sofia, Bulgaria, the 2016 BAPRA Awards were announced in front of an energised crowd of public relations professionals. The Bulgarian Public Relations Association recognises each year outstanding PR work in a range of categories. Having been a judge for BAPRA for over several years, I can attest to the quality of entries and the relevance of all the assignments they covered. But this year was more special to me than other years. In addition to speaking at the preceding BAPRA Conference, I also attended the award ceremony itself. Moreover, I was in the presence of no fewer than two previous IPRA Presidents, Christophe Ginisty and Maria Gergova-Bengtsson (whose agency United Partners, incidentally, won three awards).

Message from the IPRA President: Nursing IPRA’s Thought Leadership Essays March 2016

Recently, I spoke with Robert Gray, IPRA’s editor for the Thought Leadership Essays (ITL), which members receive with regularity. Fresh content, regularly distributed, is a benefit of IPRA membership. The steadily growing online archive of essays is a repository of a huge amount of unique PR-related content. This befits the standing of an organization like IPRA and provides a first-class resource for researchers and practitioners.
