Show Notes

July 16 is World PR Day  – a day dedicated to recognising and celebrating public relations and communication. Yes even PR needs PR.

I am joined by one of the committee members responsible for organising World PR Day, Enitan Kehinde, for a Q&A on the initiative, the events and how practitioners can get involved.

“PR is a very important practice across the world, across businesses and across governments, so it is time for us to prioritise PR…. Our goal is for practitioners across the world to answer the call of duty to help people, companies, government communicate more honestly and responsibly.”  - Enitan Kehinde

The theme of World PR Day 2022 is Trust, Truth and Transparency with a number of headline initiatives to mark the occasion:

  • #MyPRStory - PR professionals are encouraged to share their own personal experiences from their journey in the PR industry
  • PR Bible – development of a crowdsourced wikipedia with all the best PR resources from across the world.
  • A fireside chat on twitter spaces – with global PR leaders discussing this year’s theme 

Enitan, who was recognized as one of the 40 under 40 women in marketing communications in Nigeria, also shares her impressive #MyPRStory, including leading the establishment of Nigerian PR agency bhm’s UK office and founding a network to support young women in PR and communication.
