Invitation to an IPRA webinar on Public affairs: the changing nature of political engagement: 9 June 2022

I am pleased to invite you to the next in the series of IPRA Thought Leadership webinars. The webinar Public affairs: the changing nature of political engagement will be presented by Stuart Thomson, head of public affairs at BDB Pitmans on Thursday 9 June 2022 at 12.00 GMT/UCT (unadjusted).


What is the webinar content?

Public affairs is not always understood across the PR profession but if political audiences are not managed there may be damage. Public affairs should be viewed as an aspect of reputational management. Done well, it opens up opportunities and deals with threats. Ignored then significant damage can be inflicted. This session will show the valuable role that public affairs can play.
