Message from the IPRA President: Reaching out in words and deeds May 2021

In this month’s update I am happy to say that we are achieving great results with our Thought Leadership Webinar series. We rarely celebrate success and I wanted to share some numbers about these monthly online events. Although you might think the number of registrations is the variable to celebrate, it is not. Of course, it is important to get as many registrations as possible, but the attendance numbers actually matter more. These PR colleagues are genuinely interested in clearing an hour of their time to attend. Our webinars are live and international, scheduled to run at midday GMT to facilitate participation from the US to the Far East. Keep in mind that 36% is the average attendance rate for webinars in our sector, according to the latest study from ON24.
