“We’re delivering more pertinent, impactful support for PR professionals than ever before in Latin America, whether it’s offering training, or opening doors to our global events programme.

“Public Relations has emerged as a force for good at a time when healthy public discourse has become difficult and needed more than ever. It’s an honour to chair an amazing group of distinguished leaders in our region to help strengthen PR’s critical role in business and society. Our aim is to become the home of training, professional development, recognition and advancement in our field by sharing what we treasure most: Knowledge, experience and a global vision.”
