What’s on this week
What events are coming up over the next 10 days for communicators to attend? Here’s my weekly look at what’s on, so you can plan your time.
Every Sunday I take a look at upcoming awards, courses, conferences and events and publish ‘What’s on this week‘.
September is ethics month according to the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (@CIPR_UK). They have various events taking place for members and non-members alike to read and learn about this important topic including:
- 10am-11.30am, 17 September: The ethics of copyright
- 8.30am-10am, 21 September: Ethics in public affairs
- 10am-11.30am. 28 September: The ethical challenges of new technology.
If you’re interested in attending any of the discussions, email Public Relations and Policy Officer, Koray Camgoz: email@example.com.
CIPR North West will also be hosting an event on the Ethics of Persuasion in Manchester on 17 September and CIPR Corporate and Financial Group will host a breakfast briefing on 25 September in the City (London), focusing on new skills and ethics for corporate communicators.
