Who can attend?
The CharityComms PR Network events are free and exclusive to CharityComms members.
About the events
The PR Network gives you the chance to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The network is designed to encourage networking and peer to peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ environment.
The group meets three times a year to focus on a common challenge. The format of the meetings is one or two presentations on a specific topic, followed by small group discussions, providing a combination of best practice and peer-to-peer sharing.
If you’re interested in sponsoring the PR Network, please contact Vanessa for further information about this opportunity.

PR Network: The new media landscape – how to navigate this new frontier?
Getting cut through with the public and in the press on non-Covid related issues is tough, even when the story is relevant. In this session, we’ll hear how charities are navigating this new media landscape – what’s working well, what hasn’t worked so well, and where do the opportunities lie ahead? We’ll also have some much-needed time for peer-to-peer networking too.
