Is corporate responsibility now the role of the modern PR?
Can an unethical company be a corporately responsible one?
Does earning a fee affect your ethical values?
Is being sustainable the same as ethical?
What issues does corporate transparency present to your clients?
These are all questions facing the modern PR practitioner. Come along and join us in a lively debate about how PR, ethics and corporate responsibility are shaping our profession.
We will hear from four speakers, who will all present a different perspective on Ethics, Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility
- Caroline McCarthy Stout - Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Responsible Business Lloyds Banking Group and CIPR Corporate Responsibility Panel
- Matt Yeomans, Sustainly
- David Miller, Spinwatch
- Amanda Hirst, Head of Corporate Communications Avon and Somerset Police
The floor will then be open to you, to ask the panel for their thoughts on the dilemmas and issues you face.
Good news! You will be able to earn 5 CPD points from the newly compulsory ethics module by attending this event.
Included in the ticket price is a glass of wine upon arrival, and feel free to join us in the bar afterwards.
