Does public relations really matter? I have rarely been as optimistic as after the World Public Relations Forum 2016 that was co-hosted by the Canadian Public Relations Association and the Global Alliance in Toronto last month: While nationalism and nativism are on the rise globally, we spent 3 days exploring how to improve ‘Communications Across Cultures’.
DECEMBER 2015, CHAIR MESSAGE
Notes from Nairobi - November 2015 saw the first World Conference on Public Relations in Emerging Economies. The Public Relations Society of Kenya - a member of the Global Alliance – had invited the professional community and around 400 delegates gathered in Nairobi, mainly from Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Regional leaders (like Esther Cobbah, Amith Prabhu, andAlex Malouf) mixed with global voices (like Paul Holmes and Lord Chadlington) and functional experts (like Moses Alobo, Michal Wronski and Qureish Noordin).
