What’s on this week for comms pros

Today hundreds of communicators are heading to the World PR Forum to focus on Communication Across Cultures.

The forum runs from 29 to 31 May in Toronto, Canada. There’s a packed agenda with some excellent speakers.

I’m looking forward to reading about the panel session looking at the Global Alliance’s (GA) work moving from a shared body of knowledge to a global capabilities framework in PR.

Can a profession that operates across the globe have one body of knowledge, one set of standards? How can a capabilities framework be created serving professional associations, accrediting bodies, practitioners and educators alike? How can it recognise cultural variations but still have core values at its heart?

PanelistsThe panelists are Johanna Fawkes, Anne Gregory and Jean Valin (pictured). José Manuel Velasco will moderate the discussion which will look at where the GA is on this journey and where they are heading next.

You can follow the conversations via Twitter via the hashtag #WPRF2016 or see @WorldPRforum.
