Join CIPR North West members after the AGM for a panel debate and discussion.
What does the future hold for the PR sector? What are some of the immediate opportunities we should be maximising? How do we assert the full force and value of public relations? And what is coming in the next ten years?
Hear some of the experts discuss and debate these topics as part of the #FuturePRoofmovement, an important community for our profession, and also a crowd sourced book. You will also be able to ask your burning questions about the future for PR at this event.
