National Conference 2021

Our virtual national conference was a big hit with delegates in 2020 so we're excited to announce that the conference will return once again as a virtual event this year.

Stakeholder Engagement in a Changing World

 Public relations practitioners have played a key and strategic role in the successes and survival of businesses and organisations around the world as they have navigated a crisis like no other.  

Gaining stakeholder trust and delivering authentic two-way communication is an essential component of business success and has been critical to supporting the response to the pandemic for all organisations, small and large. 

CIPR's 2021 National Conference explores the impact of COVID-19 on the future of this fundamental area of work. 

From the opportunities and challenges presented by the virtual world to employee engagement, behavioural change and crisis management - we’ll be diving into the topics that define how well we’re listening, influencing and addressing the needs of our stakeholder groups and looking at the tools to help us do it.

What delegates had to say about the 2020 event

"What a great opening session for #CIPRConf20. So many great real-life examples shared by @rorysutherland to help us understand behaviour science in marketing and PR. A simple act of storytelling changes perspective."

"Picking up loads of useful ideas #CIPRconf20. Top tip so far: importance of visibility of leadership."
