IPRA’s nomination for the PRO PR GLOBE award: Liz Ostermann of Saint Hill Castle and Manor


IPRA board member Jacqueline Purcell has nominated Liz Ostermann, public relations officer at Saint Hill Castle and Manor, West Sussex, UK for the 2022 PRO PR GLOBE award. The award recognises an individual whose work contributes to a better perception of PR by the public.


Liz’s award recognises her ability to mobilise support for cooperation within her local community. This has been the essence of her work of the last 34 years. The large attendance at Saint Hill Castle and Manor for events is evidence of the meaningful community relationships she has helped to foster. Liz has been at the forefront in the use of PR to drive public health, drug rehabilitation, and other charitable work.


The award itself, designed by students from the Academy of Applied Arts at the University of Rijeka in Croatia, will be presented at a ceremony in May 2023 in the picturesque Croatian national park of the Plitvice Lakes. Other winners of the 2022 competition are from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas.
