Message from the IPRA President: 10, 9, 8, 7...The silver lining of a challenging year

As we count down to Christmas and New Year, I want to thank you again. Last December, when I was writing my end of year message to you, I wished for a very special 2020.

Message from the IPRA President: Unlocking new opportunities December 2020

It has been a busy few weeks during which I have had the pleasure to virtually connect with many of you. In Iran, I delivered the keynote video-address to the 16th International Public Relations Symposium in Tehran. This event is traditionally endorsed by IPRA and two other IPRA board members also presented to the symposium. Then, in a video message, I spoke on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the PR Society in Japan and I was able to use this opportunity to congratulate our Golden World Award winning colleagues in Japan once again! IPRA members had the chance to join the 6th FOCUS Conference, endorsed by us, and organised exclusively online this year by Croatia-based Golden World Award winner Apriori World.
