Well, that was a pretty good week really.
What did we achieve?
We launched the PR Census 2011. It is by far the most comprehensive and detailed analysis of the industry ever undertaken. I say that having overseen the CIPR’s attempt to do the same six years or so ago. It gives us detailed knowledge of the size shape, pay and background of the industry and its participants. It will be of great value to our industry, and is a fine example of collaboration between the PRCA and PR Week.
We did a PRW webcast on it. And a Gorkana one too
Our members said that the worst was yet to come for News International -and have surely been vindicated already.
Yesterday was the inaugural PRCA-APPC-VMA public affairs summer drinks party. A thoroughly crowded St Stephen’s Club saw some of the most powerful people in the industry gather, exchange views and drink decent wine. We were even happy to welcome the CIPR’s Phil Morgan and my friend its ex-President Lionel Zetter there too.
The second deadline for our awards closed, with entries up by around a half. And, of course, we welcomed a couple more corporate members.
So the onwards march of the PRCA continues....
