'World' of PR under scrutiny at UWE

Issue date: 03 June 2010

UWE 'Developments in the World of PR' will be the topic of discussion for eminent speaker Danny Rogers, editor of 'PR Week', (a key publication for the public relations industry) at an evening event on 10 June hosted by the University of the West of England.

The event is organised by the Traverse-Healey Forum and supported by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA), Bristol Media and the Marketing Department of Bristol Business School.

Tim Traverse-Healey, widely regarded as one of the UK founders of modern day PR, will also be attending. There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the event.

Commenting on the evening Sara Bird (event organiser and Senior Lecturer in Marketing) says, “We are honoured to have Tim Traverse-Healey and Danny Rogers at this event. It will be an excellent opportunity for PR professionals to learn the latest in the world of PR, and for students to develop their understanding of the history and significance of the field from two key industry figures. Tim Traverse-Healey was described in a Guardian newspaper article in 2003 as being 'unrealistic, idealistic, utopian' for his efforts to ensure that truth and regard for the public interest were central planks of public relations. These key principals are at the heart of any discussion about Public Relations.

“The University has developed close links with the CIPR and PRCA, professional PR bodies, which enable us to offer excellent opportunities to work with the industry and offer opportunities for students.”

The event will take place on 10 June, at 18:30 (refreshments and registration from 6pm), in the Glendinning Lecture Theatre, on the Frenchay Campus of UWE.

The event is open to the public. Tickets cost: CIPR, PRCA and Bristol Media members – £20 CIPR, PRCA and Bristol Media members – £20; Student CIPR members – £15; Other students – £20; All others – £30. For details and registration please visit http://thforum.org/events
