The Chartered Institute of Public Relations has published a list of 70 members who’ve made an outstanding contribution to the Institute and the wider PR industry.
70 at 70 features pioneering practitioners, alongside unsung CIPR members and volunteers from a range of professional backgrounds.
The unique project forms part of the CIPR’s seventieth anniversary celebration.
Laura commented: “I’m honoured to have been nominated by my peers to feature alongside some dedicated and highly respected public relations and communication practitioners. I dedicate time to the CIPR as I believe it’s important to ‘give back’ to your own industry and help others succeed.
“My role on Council ends in December but I will carry on as Chair of the Fellows’ Forum, driving better engagement and value for this very special group of senior and high profile members.”
The CIPR launched a call for nominations earlier this year for members who’d made a significant contribution in one of the following areas:
- outstanding or exemplary public relations practice
- volunteering and commitment to the PR community
- entrepreneurship within the profession
- development of ethical competence
- thought leadership and authorship in public relations
- academic research, teaching or training
- trade journalism
Nominations were reviewed by an independent committee, comprised of members from a broad range of professional disciplines.
