|Strategies to promote Public Relations in your company|
Gauteng: PRISA Randburg
Strategic public relations should feature in the long-term planning and development of a company. It can provide creative solutions and add a new dimension to an organisation’s strategy. In reality, however, corporate communication and strategic public relations rarely enjoys the importance it deserves. Public relations professionals often find themselves relegated to technician, implementer roles and not adding value as strategic corporate contributors.
This one day workshop is designed to provide participants with strategic tools needed for the journey of promoting public relations in a company - tools which aim to elevate public relations’ status within the organisation and restore it to its rightful position. Corporate communication and strategic public relations should be able to stand on its own as a creative force in a company, contribute to the bottom line, and thereby, directly impact the achievement of the company's business goals.
