IPR European Professional Colloquium

October 4-5, 2012 – Cliveden, Taplow, Berkshire, UK

Registration by invitation only
The European Trustees of the Institute for Public Relations are pleased to present this annual by-invitation-only Professional Colloquium for the most senior communications and corporate affairs professionals.

Over 24 hours, we will explore the broad theme of “Reputation in a Social Environment.”  By this we mean far more than social media and networking.  We will explore the roles and expectations of corporations in an ever-more demanding give-and-take social climate.  For the most senior communications professionals, the theme raises issues such as:

  • What transparency means today and whether organizations can expect anything to remain truly confidential for the long term
  • What this means in terms of crisis management, sustainability and corporate responsibility
  • Integrating the (often conflicting) interests of all organizational stakeholders
  • Communications team structure and functions required in this environment
  • How to advise the CEO

The colloquium discussions will be research-based and driven by group interaction.  Conversations and debates at this by-invitation-only event are led by CEOs, members of the group and other executive guests. As always, discussions at this peer-group meeting are intended to be as confidential as they are challenging.

From Sustainability to Durability: Implications for Communications and Public Relations Research

November 26-27, 2008
University of Warwick, UK

The European Trustees of the Institute for Public Relations developed this by-invitation-only professional colloquium for the most senior public relations/public affairs leaders in Europe to:

  • Develop a high-quality community of top public relations people focusing on issues important to them and provide an opportunity for open and confidential discussion.
  • Assess the impact of current developments in the global financial and economic environment on the public relations profession.
  • Focus thinking on areas of new public relations research to be undertaken by the Institute that would be most relevant for the profession internationally.

This inaugural colloquium explored a variety of issues normally associated with sustainability and CSR while integrating these into a larger context – the ability of the corporation to adapt and thrive over a long period of time, particularly given the challenges of the current economic climate.
