Join us at our Inaugural IPRS PRISM Summit 2022 on 10 November 2022 as we take on The Future of PR.


PRISM which stands for Public Relations In Service Of Mankind is an interactive and thought-provoking summit to delve into the evolving role of PR and its contributions to countries and organisations, and why PR matters now, even more than ever.


Speakers will share actionable insights and solutions to help PR and communications practitioners find ways to understand, measure, analyse and develop initiatives and programmes that create value for their organisations and positively benefit economies, society, and the PR profession.


Participants will gain invaluable knowledge from PR industry leaders and domain experts on the opportunities and challenges presented by emerging technology and sustainability regulations, and how PR is helping organisations with its growth and reputation management amidst an increasingly volatile global market.


A full day packed with keynote panel, 5 panel discussions, 2 fireside chats, customised workshop, wellness experience, next generation presentation and networking in a diverse community of professionals and business leaders.


Early bird rates extended to 21 October 2022. Sign-up now to secure your seats!

    Technology: PR has traditionally focused on earned media. But in today’s digitally and globally connected world, communications practitioners need to utilise all platforms to get their messages out there. How can we leverage digital and social media to do this? Are features in traditional media channels still worth their weight or are “likes” and “shares” the new currency in PR?
