PR Network events

CharityComms’ PR Network is a group for professionals working in PR and media in UK charities and not-for-profits.

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 Harriet Smith for further information about this opportunity.
